Great idea

Perfect to tie the bike sideways to the Toyota.

One method i used on my friends bike. Get a 2X4. Cut a V notch in one end, then measure from the bottom of the handlebar to the ground and cut the wood to fit under the bar on that side. Then do the same for the other side. Once both pieces of wood are in place it sits rock solid.

You could put a small piece across the bottom of them too so they don't move at all, but i didn't bother.
