    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!

    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).
