At least the bike was nothing special.

But geez, did he really think that was going to go over well? "Yea, just let me run as fast as I can than SLAM into this ramp"....what if the bike DID get up the ramp? It would have fell down regardless. Idiot! Just have two people (not incl camera person) stand around while you attempt that........smart.

I like how the guy in the back was just watching and waiting.
He couldn't even pick his own bike up; bet his gf is some fine Asian tho.

Saw something much worse while managing a truck rental company years ago. Guy reserved a truck without a lift or ramp and then rode a brand new street bike with the idea of putting it in back of the truck for the drive home. He asked if we had a ramp he could use. We didn't. Our yard guy (rather stupidly - he never rode a bike) offered a 2x8" wood plank instead, which the guy happily accepted. His bike was clearly too heavy for that wood plank. Regardless, he leaned that plank into the bed of the truck and got ready to ride his bike up.

I walked into the office (right beside the truck) from the other side of the building just as he started up the makeshift ramp. He got about two thirds of the way up before he hesitated (stopped) as the plank started bouncing up and down. He had no place to put his feet down. As he fell over, the plank actually acted like a trampoline, flipping the bike's tires into the air. The bike (and him) landed nearly upside down on the curb (windshield, handlebar, mirrors, instrument display, tail-piece, & tank), bounced, and then flipped hard on it's side (fairing, muffler & foot peg). He jumped free of the bike as it was falling, so only had a few scratches and scrapes from the pavement.

It was a very nice bike, but now looked like it had been in an accident with another vehicle. Afterwards, used another truck with a hoist to load the bike into the truck. Don't know how he got the bike out of the truck once he arrived home.

After that mess, he could've pulled into his driveway and just pushed the bike out. It's not like the additional damage would matter!

LOL. You've got a point there. Perhaps I should have said don't know how he originally planned (prior to botched Evel Knievel stunt) to get that bike out of the truck.

Man, that bike was really messed up. Bits and pieces all over the place. I rode a bike at that time as well, so will never forget it.

He put a shame to all the taco owners out there by failing at putting his bike in the back...

Lol Coming from a guy who spend 12k on a street bike at 18 years old, i'd never risk driving it up the ramp when it could easily fall, let alone into a 2ft bed!!! If you plan on loading a bunch of bikes and shit into your truck why even lift it...
Either way that kids a moron!!! Just the first 2 seconds of him pushing the bike freaked me out!

He was destined to fail. Either way the end result would have been just as retarded.

There are videos on Youtube showing how to do it properly.

If I had to do this often, I'd get get an $80 utility winch mounted to the front end of the bed.

This is definitely not a PROPER way to do it! If people try this many will fail and they will fall with the bike on top of them...The best way is to either be a beef cake and push it up the ramp (Engine off), or use a nearby stopwall for a flat or close to flat entrance.

I've done it, pretty stupid, but it works. you need enough speed to get up the ramp, then you can't stop.

The best way is not to "beef cake" it up the ramp. you have more of a chance to screwing it up just like the DA in the OP. With the engine and some decent throttle/clutch control, it's easy to do this way. I do it the same way all the time and even without the steps to get into the bed. (i'm 6'5 so i can just step up into the bed.)
