Motorcycle (Harley Fatboy) goes in 8' truck bed. Have tried rack on back
of 32' A class, have tried box trailer towed by B class. Truck bed the best.
Blue Ox 8' x 3' folding ramp and always push bike up ramp. Bike 1.1/4" clear
of tailgate.


Yes - we have found a 694lb bike in the bed + genset + fulltiming
accessories does soften the ride.

I have a 1500 C90T Suzuki and I haul it in the back of my long bed 2007 Dodge Diesel. After researching for months, I decided to go with a sport-loader. This power ramp that pulls the bike up into the bed and supports the bike. It's made by Blue Ox. You can visit their website and check out the video. The only draw back is it's not something you can easily take in and out and also you may have to run around with no tail gate. It has come in handy for helping a few buddies of mine transporting their bikes and most important it's got me out of helping people move. LOL

We tow Murray's 100th anniversary Harley Road King in the back of our Dodge Ram 2500's bed and strap it down. Ride the hog up the ramp and roll it down. The ride seems fine.

We're hauling a golf cart in the back of the bed for Burning Man this year-ya, we've got to figure out the logistics for that one!

Live to ride, Ride to live!

I think I'll get a ramp to get my fat behind up in the bed of the truck!

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.
