Well, the specs tell me two pertinent things:
A. It's actually designed to protect your truck, not your bike
B. It's only 3/4" foam.
Hmmm. If you're serious about this method of transport, I'd give it a test with a couple of folded up blankets first and see how it rides.
If I liked it I might go as far as getting a block of ballistic rubber, (8x8x16", $59, listed at the bottom of the page here
), carve out channels for the tailgate, the downtube and the forks. A couple of motorcycle tie-downs later and you'd have a custom fit protective system that will cushion virtually any impact and takes 60 seconds to install.
