Finally got the bikes..

After nights of research, and half a dozen visits to LBSes, finally decided to go for Specialized.
Thanks to all who gave information and opinions..

...so far, very satisfied.

^^ He has the wheel racks, so all he needs is enough lash-down to keep 'em from rolling out of the racks. Canoe lashes would be clean, easy to use and cheap too.

Edit - - ah, but you were thinking tailgate pad, huh? Good way to maximize a short bed like that too.

I was thinking moto style tie downs, which would save a lot of wrapping, weaving and knotting.

That's normally what I preach (as you know), but that looks like a nice little rack he's got there already.

dexmax, that's a Hilux?

Thanks everyone.. I agree, I need to buy new ropes.. but so far this works.

@cryptid01, this is my old '96 Mitsubishi L200.. got it when I finished high school; and used it (to carry my roadies) throughout my college years.. Did a full restore over a year ago, and still love it.

The white one is also an L200 (2010).

Cheers!

That was my thought too - - only not full-fledged M/C tiedowns. Found these nifty canoe tie-downs in the clearance bin at REI: loop one end and non-marring hook on the other with a cinch-buckle.
