I don't use it a whole lot, and when I do a neighbor helps me out. It is well made though and folds up for easy storage.


Thanks for this feedback. I expect most of the time I will be loading and unloading all by myself, so I gotta factor that in to ramp selection. I like the idea of the ramp you have posted - looks easy to move and store. Am wondering if I might get two of them - one to roll up the bike on, and another spaced sufficiently apart such that I can walk up it along with the bike on the other ramp? Hmmmm

I use the same one Dave. When loading, I put a foot stool/ice chest/tool box/ to the left of the ramp near the end of the tailgate. Then, just feather the clutch. As the bike goes up the ramp, I step up to the stool with my left foot, then to the tailgate with my right. Done!
