Stunt bikes are typically geared lower and fully caged. Plus stunt riders tend to have a bit more clutch and brake control than most people. If you can do it, great but for most people riding the bike up a single ramp is not a good idea.

Just an all around bad idea - we used to do it with our dirt bikes, and several times we had issues with the ramps falling off, the rider missing, etc. It might seem easier on paper, but in reality it's much better to take it slow and do it safely.

ha i do it alone every time as do all my friends.... it goes up there with no problems lol

Im not even close to the level your at yet man, I would have been had it not been for this damn Taco!!!. I still got to get to BP. It is still a much cheaper hobby than off roading I think. Never would I have spent the 10 grand on my bike that I plan and hopefully can on my truck. Cant wait to get a HB and a Riteuous too.

Yeah I bet that can be super frustrating, Ill have to see if I ever get there. I sold my R6v, miss my pretty street bike. I think mine is plus 8 or 9 and it isnt too annoying on the street. I cant remember but I think a lot of the guys from StuntRide said that you should be fine if you stick to between +5-9. I dunno though.

Here is where I bought it from:

http://www.mototote.com/motorcycle-c...arrier-us.html

The cost was $449, and I got I think 10% off for military so that basically covered shipping.

I love it, it is so easy to load up, I just pull up to my driveway, connect the ramp that you can see next to the bike in the pics and push my motorcycle up on it, then strap it down with tie down ratchets.

The only downside to this, is that I have found out that you either need to take off your plate from your truck or get an addition plate for it so that it can be visible. It totally blocks your license plate and a local cop buddy of mine in Georgia said that the plate needs to be visible. I have gone on 4-5 trips from Middle Georgia down to Central Florida and back, without being stopped. I even had a Florida Highway Patrolman talk to me about it at a gas station when he was parked behind me getting gas. He thought it was "bad ass", and didn't even mention anything about the plate. I talked with another FHP officer and he told me that if I stay under the speed limit and not doing anything stupid that more than likely nothing will happen.

Hope that helps?

Just look at the photos of it tied down on my truck. Once you push it up onto the ramp, the front wheel goes in the front chock. It sways a little bit, but nothing to worry about.

I use a Ready Ramp that I've had for many many years, works great.
I easily put 2 bikes in mine for going to the track. I just put them up against the front of the bed use the soft tie type straps to the lower tripple. One strap on each to the sides of the bed and the others go to a little bracket I have bolted in the middle. For the back I just strap the rear tires together and to each side of the bed too keep them from moving around.
For the new truck, I'm going to be getting the pitbull trailer restraints so I won't have any have pressure on the forks. Blowing seals because of tightening too much sucks! Plus it'll make securing them so much easier
