Cruiser Ramp system eliminates the use of boards and eliminates backing the vehicle into a ditch to load the motorcycle. Simply drive the motorcycle's front wheel into the locking wheel chock on the system platform assembly, tie the front wheel down at the axle position using the supplied ratchet tie-down straps, activate the hand held remote switch and the motorcycle is pulled into the pickup bed

Dirtbiker I use a 2 x 10 with a ramp kit dealie on the end of it.

For the dirtbike I can just walk right into the bed of the truck, for the streetbike I use a cooler as a step.

For a Harley (why does it seem like I am hauling my dad's or my brothers Harley every weekend?) I call for help.

That works for a van with a low bumper height, there's no simple hopping up with my truck, as the tailgate is too high. I think I am going to get one of those ramps that fold into 3 sections lengh wise so its 4 feet wide.

lovebothkats I actually bought a pair (2) aluminum ones from home depot. They are meant for loading lawn tractors and stuff but they work great. Having two allows you to simply walk up one, while powering the bike up the other. I have used them to load many of bikes into trucks, and the van. They do take up more room, and are probably heavier than most ramps but to me the trade off was worth it. I don't like pushing bikes up and this was one of the few ways I found to simply just stand beside it ease the clutch and walk the bike on in. I'm lazy.
