Loading and unloading motorcycles from a truck or trailer is a bit of a voodoo science, wherein experience brings knowledge and knowledge brings smooth, safe results. Another benefit of experience is knowing what kind of ramp to use for different bikes, trucks, trailer, and conditions. In general, though, the longer and wider the ramp, the easier the loading job will be. Youth and exuberance, together with a short lightweight ramp, can load dirt bikes into a jacked-up 4x4. But this dog won’t hunt getting a 900-pound hog into the same truck with the same ramp and same kids. See? It’s all got to work together. The best thing, if you have the money and storage space, is a long, articulated, multi-piece aluminum ramp system that lets you walk alongside your bike during loading or unloading. Bottom line: Examine your needs and choose a ramp to suit. Winner.
