As I get older, the options of the bikes I've got get wider. Good, or what? Now, there is this developing situation where I want to take multiple bikes to specific events. I may even find it desirable to load the sidecar and do a drive/ride tour. pharqmoi! I've never had a ute or 1 tonner. Any time I've wanted to cart bikes it's been in the box trailer, which has been fitted with rather rudimentary channels for the front wheels. I can just fit two bikes, with difficulty. Sooner or later, I'll have to lash out on another trailer. That's not the current question. From the experience of the many, what are the positives & negatives of a 'style side' ute against a drop sides, table top 1 tonner? Most obvious for me is that the ute is lower but, how hard is it to fit 2 full size motorcycles into a ute? Do I need a ladder to load bikes onto a 1 tonner? Beyond that, I'm listening.
