Truck Loading Ramp Questions
I'm a new member to the forums and had a question that maybe someone has information on. I was recently looking for a ramp for my 2011 Avalanche to load my CBR into the truck. I came across this ramp and it seemed to be simple and cheap.
Loading the bike into the back of the truck shouldn't be the problem. I was wondering if anyone had experience loading bikes into the back of a truck with stock motorcycles as well as lowered ones on a ramp like this. I've noticed there are arched ramps out there for loading motorcycles, but most of them aren't wide enough to walk up.
Has anyone lowered their motorcycle and had any problems with ramping it into the truck? Also has anyone purchased an arched ramp and had problems loading it into the truck alone? It seems that all these ramps are only about a foot in width and might be a pain loading it. I'm a little worried about the loading process since the Avalanche has a bit higher of a bed, but was hoping someone may have some input on this. I also wanted to lower the bike a bit and possibly extend the swingarm, but if this holds me back from loading it into my truck with ease, I might have to find some other options. I use my bike to ride around town mainly and hit a few curvy roads here and there, but think I would have more fun taking it to a drag strip. That is the reason I was going to extend out and possibly lower. Does anyone have any input on that as well? Thanks everyone!
