What's a good ramp for loading a sportbike into a normal (factory height) 4WD pickup truck?

I bought a folding aluminum ramp from Home Depot for $120. Its great and doesn't flex an inch when you roll a 550lb bike up it.

I guess the ReadyRamp® can't be used to load my Triumph.

That's because you need a special "left-handed" ramp for a Triumph.


(And yes, the Japanese manufacturers have "Americanized" their bikes for use with right-handed ramps...)

Now that's funny. Much better than the "Cafe Racer" joke form the other thread.

Re: (Cafe_Racer)

I experimented with this....

http://www.ramp-kit.com

Aluminum/Galvanized Steel Hybrid
100” long x 16” wide with 4” cross bar spacing (the kit comes with two ramps but at 16" wide, one is actually all I need...)

It's cheap but you have to build it yourself (super easy but time consuming...).

The seven foot arched ones are what I use and they are excellent. You can walk up on one while the bike goes up the other so that you can hold on to the handlebars easilt. I hope I don't fall off someday.

Oh, you can load your Triumph with a ReadyRamp®... It just doesn't deserve it.
