Transporting a bike inside a Defender 110sw

Hi, I own a 2006 Td5 110sw and I am planning to take an NX650 bike with me for holidays. I will be traveling 1650km direct from Buenos Aires to Patagonia and would not like to tow a trailer. The Landy is already too slow and here you need a special license which I don't have.
Has anyone done this? Perhaps taking off the front wheel of the bike and the 2nd líne of seats of the truck.
Regards

What about a hitch-mounted carrier?







They've always worked well on my LR3, though the NX650 is a bit heavier.

James, that is a good idea but here you aré not allowed to carry things beyond the líne of the rear bumper (which, by the way, the Defender does not have but that is different story...). Hiway Cops tend to be a pain during the holyday season.

I heard the 'chirping' noise from the forward drive shaft of my D2a on thursday, parts ordered, going to pull it and rebuild it with greaseable Uni's

going to try to remove it this afternoon, can only do so much with a broken collar bone.... think wife might not be impressed.....

will let you know how I go....

Good luck! When I did mine, I purchased a shaft with all the work done.

Well, it can be done.
Removed the fwd drive shaft single handed as in one hand, cos a broken collar bone doesnt allow much movement underneath!
came out easy enough, parts on order (which I shall list here when done for other inmates)

I thought about a re-worked shaft but the cost of the parts and access to equipment to do the job it was too expensive.

more to follow
