The best bet for a sport bike is one of those longer arched ramps.... so it does not bottom out when going from ramp to bed.
Check Youtube for motorcycle loading mis-hap videos.... alot of them, and some are just too funny.

I'm kind of following you. Put the jack stands in the center, or most center to where they touch the best? I'm a little confused. A pic? Oh oh! Put the 2x12s under the center, extended a tad, for an extra ramp, better leverage.

I don't know all this extra work and the extra $170 doesn't sound so bad lol.

Speaking of such. I still have a "canyon dancer" tie down system for bikes. If someone wants to pay the shipping, they can have it.

yea. I only used it maybe 3 times. It's in a box around here somewhere.
If I remember correctly there were 2 different models at the time. (Bought in 2000?) This was the upgraded model. I'm sure they had a few design changes since then but it worked on my R1 really well.
