Tiedown weight restriction

I am hoping to purchase a '10 Frontier and have several questions. I would like to carry my wife's motorcycle in the back. The dealer told me that the tie-down hooks have a 250 lb each restriction on them. The bike weighs a little over 500 lbs. Any thoughts. Also, what would the weight restriction on the tail gate be as the rear wheel would be riding on the tail gate.

Also note that with the tailgate down the the side rails near the open end will have diminished capacity and that the floor rails have a lower working capacity than the side rails as per the manual (although I have not read a 2010 manual). As for holding a bike in place, should be a non issue when properly secured and driven reasonably.
