Nice pics. I might have some pics later this summer of my Ram with my ZX14 and my son's CBRF2 in it, IF I don't decide to rent a trailer instead....

Yap, I have a folding trailer myself, but it is hard to get to it... Now I only use the trailer if we are taking a trip, and I need to bring my motorcycle, kids bicycles, coolers, etc. If it is just the motorcycle, I prefer to put in the truck.
Besides, everytime you have the trailer, you have the potential of something goes wrong with the trailer, flat tire etc

Right On Moulin!!

Got a Goldwing right now but did have a GS before that. Great bike and when my Ram is paid off It's time for another one I think.

Advrider is the best motorcycle forum.

Ride safe buddy!!

I haven't found a ram I like yet to roll my VFR into the bed. I wish I could find a compact ramp that is wide enough to walk the bike up without breaking the bank.

Howdy from the airport side of Nashville.

You Nashville boys are sure lucky being only a few hours from some great roads to ride in the Eastern US.

I'm jealous

Cheers

You should never haul a bike on its kickstand. There are multiple reasons, a couple of the easy ones: 1. The suspension of the bike is now locked, the jamming against bumps has cracked frames. 2. you are pulling the weight of the bike down on 2 sq. in. as well as at an angle all of which stresses the straps. Beds dent, I've seen wood floors give out, kick stands break and the right hand straps give way etc..

There are nice roads down there for sure. We take 2-3 trips a year to the Gap area.

I have an 09 1250 Bandit.It weighs about 550. I carry it in the back of my truck from time to time.
I load it by letting the bike do the work. I have the engine running in 1st gear.
I have 1 ramp for the bike and 1 for me. I walk up the other ramp while holding the bike and feathering the clutch and the bike climbs the ramp.
It sounds a bit scary, but works well.
I try to find a hill to back up to when I unload to cut the angle the ramps are at.
I have never worried about the strength of the cables. I believe they are more than strong enough. A guy at my work once pushed down on a tailgate with a forklift by mistake. The tailgate bent in the centre, and the cables held.
