sign up for thee news letter and you'll get a 10-15% off coupon. The ramps they had there looked good for a sportbike and were way under $100

If you want the absolute cheapest possible ramp, buy a 2x8 (or 2x10) and a ramp kit (Google "ramp kit" to see what I'm talking about) at any decent hardware store. Total cost well under $50. This is what I use because I am a cheapskate.

If you're loading onto a trailer it'll work fine. Going into a truck bed? Not so great.

Good post . You and I think alike.lol I went to home depot to see if i could find some products to put a ramp together.Plenty of 4X8's but that was about it. The ramp kit will work fine being that my trailer is an open 4x6.

ramp kits work fine with trailers, heck i used to use just a plank no ramp kit to put bikes in my trailer. however, if you are using a truck, no matter what your bike will scrape, even if you dont have fairings, i can guarantee bubba that your f2 will scrape, remember puttin that one in the back of my s10 with a plank? yeah the next day i bought ramps cause i was so sick of doin that. but honestly, ill give you that ramp kit for like 10 bucks cause i paid like 20 for it, and you can make a real cheap ramp. but if you wanna protect the bike, cause your f2 looked really nice, i would get real ramps, its a good investment. like i said, mine were like 120 for 2 ramps, and im glad i have 2...one to walk up and one for the bike, makes it so easy.
