I'm looking into buying new ramps for loakding and unloading the bike on the truck. Anyone have suggestions of which ones they like.
I actually have a second one that you could purchase off of me if you want.. I bought a set for $200 last december when I bought my bike...DocThee said:I'm looking into buying new ramps for loakding and unloading the bike on the truck. Anyone have suggestions of which ones they like.
No I paid 3 times that, it was expensive. But heavier duty, and curved so you don't drag the bottom...I can also use the wings for ATV loading. Straight ramps are cheaper..and all you need for loading into a low trailer or loading an ATV.Ducati1 said:That's a nice one, but your not buying that for $79
Remember that's distributed load. Your ramp is designed to hold larger loads under the wheels of the quad on the edge of the ramp rather than the middle. So no big running starts...even tho your angle of approach on a trailer is pretty low.DreamRyder said:well for my lil ol cheap price .. mine handles 1200 lbs :twofinger
As I said... don't ride it up...DreamRyder said:well for my lil ol cheap price .. mine handles 1200 lbs :twofinger
and it's light weight enough that even I can carry it
as for riden them up... that's why I got the wide ramp.. have two of the narrow ones that are long and curved to use on the back of tail gates for bikes and 4 wheelers... love them but wouldn't trust ridin one up even with the extra one next to it for footing...
DAMN Bluto how much do you think I weight :twofingerBluto said:Remember that's distributed load.

I was agreein with ya darlin about the not riding them up the narrow ones.. hell I won't even walk mine up the narrow ramps... worries me too much reachin up and trien to keep the bike balanced while not given it too much throttle LOL.. that's why I usually had the fellas do it for me when I had just the single narrow ramp...Gas Man said:As I said... don't ride it up...
I idle the bike up the ramps...while I walk along side it... kinda like loading a horse... you walk it into the truck/trailer... just with the MC it don't help to smack it on its arse!
geesh what is it with the selective reading of what I type???? LOL... I told him the same thing.. that the same company had longer ramps and ones with arches that mine would be too short for a high truck :twofingerGixxerChris said:Anthony, the ramp that Eunice posted up is too short and the angle will be to steep and the bottom of the bike will scrape.
...sorry E...for a low trailer it's fine, but not for the high truck tailgate.
The kind that Chuck has is really nice....nice and wide, long and curved. The bed of my truck is pretty high (03 dodge ram 1500 quadcab) and Chuck was able to easily ride the busa up when we had to go back to Ohio and get it. The only problem is that his ramp is too long to close the tailgate, but it had to be down anyway because of the bike.
