My experience regarding a Motorcycle Ramp was memorable because we didn't have one when we needed one. Typical...
We need to get a motorcycle onto to the bed of a rented trailer - a flatbed trailer, not specifically designed for a motorcycle. A rented trailer without any sort of ramp, none.
Knowing full well how much the motorcycle weighed (in excess of 450 pounds), we thought that we could simply guide the bike up a wooden plank onto the bed of the trailer. Easier said than done. With much cursing and sweat, it took two men and me to hoist the bike up the wooden plank into the trailer. I can't even remember the manpower that was required to get the bike out of the trailer.
Bottom line: You absolutely need a strong,
non-wooden motorcycle ramp
if you are going to move a bike into a trailer or truck. A wooden plank can seem like a very unsteady balance beam when you are trying to guide a 500 pound two-wheeled motorcycle up it's incline. Trust me!
