There are a lot of bumper carry options that will work with a wide variety of vehicles. Some carriers are better than others and some vehicles better suited than others.

Or even folding trailers that take very little shop floor space when not in use, from the budget Harbor Freight (in my garage) to the pimp daddy Kendon. Just about ANY car can pull a lightweight trailer and dirtbike if loaded properly and driven with care.

Not all of us own super crew long bed trucks, my primary hauler is the Land Rover with a MxHauler on the hitch. As my Land Rover is down, I've been transporting my YZ250 on the folding trailer pulled by my Mini Cooper.

Just to help in the conversation with your wife.

And one last suggestion if you are looking at the WR250F or CRF250X. While many bikes are sold out, I have been seeing a few left over KTM 250 EXC-F plated bikes still being sold on cycle trader at very good prices by dealers (ie much lower than the normal KTM premium.) KTM is discontinuing it in the US, but might just fit your needs.

No need for trailer or truck, but trails would need to be close.

You buy any brand new excf and you will have to add $1k on top to make it a real dirtbike

Real knobbies
Offroad gearing
Desmog/derestrict
Armor and protection
Fueling fix (jd tuner or voetex ecu)

Then maybe you want to respring/revalve unless you weigh close to 160# which is who these seem to be setup for from the factory.
