Truck Ramp Recommendations?

I'm looking for a ramp to help load my motorcycle. I don't need anything fancy. Just wondering if anyone here has any experience/recommendations to guide me before I purchase one. The bike is an SV650 & the truck is a 2003 Tacoma 4x4 (not lifted).


Ride safe.
Thanks!

I recently bought a pair of Moose Racing arched folding ramps. I drilled a few holes and bolted the two into one wider ramp. It is very solid and makes loading a snap. The price isn't too bad, either.

If you want a proper ramp, get a folding arched ramp. Steel ones are cheaper, but heavier. Aluminum ones are the opposite.

If you want budget, at our local store similar to your harbour freight, you can get a ramp-end that you screw or nail to a 2 x 10.

If arched, you can run a shorter ramp & not scrape, it straight, you may want one a little longer (over 6 feet).

I've got these and like them a lot. They're an aluminum folding ramp and arched. Light weight, strong and fairly inexpensive.

I've used a long 2x10 with the end attachments from home depot for a while, but they're a pain since they don't fold down for traveling.
