I carry a Honda CT70 on the front of my pickup. Only 164 pounds, so that isn't much of a problem. Also small enough to not obstruct the headlights too much. I built the rack using two receivers, one on each frame rail. Very solid mount and I also incorporated a front center receiver for hooking trailers to the front. Front receiver always stays on and I add two "buckets" for the Honda tires when I need to carry it.
Have used it for 8 years without a problem. I built it to carry the full weight of my pickup, so I don't think the little Honda could tax it at all.

Does the Amerideck offer sufficient clearance with the propane tanks? It looks like about a 6 inch overhang at the rear of the truck bed.

I'll be carrying a KTM 1190 at 500lbs including luggage racks and riding gear. Two aluminum ramps, one to walk up and one for the bike. The tailgate will close with the bike on an angle. I've done the math and it will be close. If the wife ends up not riding two up, then maybe just throw a dirt bike in there, or just leave the wife at home, and take both.

The Amerideck has two large roller wheels at the end of the deck and I'm wondering if I could use a pin set up and remove the wheels from the deck after I get the bike loaded in order to get better clearance.

KTM 1190R on a RAM 2500 with my 27FB. No issues. I have an 8í bed and I use a bed-mounted Condor wheel chock to hold the bike steady. Also use wide Big Boy ramps to load, shown with an MV Agusta F4.Click image for larger version

I have been using the Loadall system now for several years. Harleyís are a bit more challenging to load so this system is very nice. Iíll attach a video.

Almost cheating to use that ramp. I bet it costs more than my bikes.

The Loadall looks like a great system, but according to their website it won't work with the Spyder. The wheelbase is too wide.

I install a 500 pound rated front receiver, 2-inch, 2 use with my F150 SuperCrew 3.5 L EcoBoost. The rack weighs about 50 lb and the bike is a light 350. I'm towing a 20-foot Flying Cloud and that's a 5000 pound axle. I have a Topper on the bed of the five and a half foot bed generator gears stuff like that and this seat behind me is bicycle other odds and ends not a lot of stuff. The scales showed I was over about 60 pounds in the front and maybe 200 lb in the rear. Truck handled normally. I could easily see over the bike which is a Suzuki 650 but headlights are blocked and I did move my license plate to the front windshield when I'm moving just in case a cop gives me a hard time. I'm not entirely comfortable with this as I haven't tested this through the mountains but we shall see. I made sure I could get extra straps on the bike in case I had to stand on the brakes in an emergency and the bike wouldn't fly off. I travel with the bike gas tank nearly empty
