New guy already needs a favor

Hello all, just joined the site.
Been riding since I was five years old and my dad came home with a Mini Trail for me and my brother.
I've had a few bikes over the years, but love the twins. Had a TLR for a long time and an Aprilia Falco after that.
Anywhooo, had to sell the Aprilia last summer to pay for some work on the house that needed doing. Wasn't easy but had to be done. I've scraped some pennies together and am hopefully going to look at an 02 this weekend.
My truck has a crazy short bed and I want to make sure she'll fit if everything works out. Can anyone give me an idea on the length of these beauties? Going by the wheelbase I think I'll be fine but.......
Thanks

Im not sure on inches but I can put mine one dgree off straight in bed my F-150 with the bed closed (I think the bed is like 7.5 feet). I think with your tailgate down you should have no problem fitting. Wheel base of an 02 is 55.9 inches.

Good luck...I just rented a motorcycle trailer from Uhaul for $15.00 a day. It made things a lot easier!

If things are coming your way...then you're probably in the wrong lane

Thanks fellas. I decided to play it safe and borrow my dads truck with a regular size bed.
My truck has a four and half foot bed.

This is when I got home.

She needs a little love, but over all it's pretty solid.
Got it torn down and going through everything now.
