one more suggestion i didnt see here, maybe overlooked but if you do use the bed of the tundra. to make it easier to load into the back of the truck, it helps finding a hill little elevation spot to ride the truck up. front wheels more elevated than the rear. but yeah i used the truck technique before (elevated), uhaul (easiest) and riding the bike back before.

congrats on the new bike bro what are you getting?

if you have a truck your taking up there to purchase the bike with you really need to be learning how to load it in your truck its an invaluable skill especially because it's faster than renting a u haul and cheaper... most street bikes can be lifted into a pick up bed by hand with a few guys or just get a ramp and bring a friend

Just to parrot a few others - why not ride it?
