Suggest a ramp

I plan on doing a lot of track days in the near future and won't always have somebody to help me load and unload the bike.
I currently have one of those narrow ramps that i do not feel safe using because i know i'll probably drop my bike. Looking for a new ramp that will allow me to load and unload my bike with ease on my Tundra.

I know I can always rent a trailer, but that just adds to the list of things to do right before a track day and I'd rather not.

Suggestions?

Re: Suggest a ramp

Bryan - Tell me about it, b/c my truck is a bit high (not lifted) the incline gets me really nervous haha.

I've seen the ATV ones you're talking about though, that might be the next best thing.

Using plywood and sandpaper (for grip) has also crossed my mind. A couple of hinges to fold it up, idk...

Hell I rolled a riding lawn mower over trying to use those stupid ramps.
I would use a ply wood ramp lol. After building a few houses my trust in some ply wood is pretty up there.

If you wanna be super cheap like me find a hill and back up to it with the truck. Use the lil Shit ramps to get it in. once at the track ask some one with a good ramp if you can use it lol.

Yea id be careful using plywood, prolly not the best idea. Unless its really thick.. Ive had them break in half and slip out on me when loading dirt bikes.. R6 + plywood ramp= ur bike slaming into the tailgate==repair$. Go buy a ramp!!!

Re: Suggest a ramp

My Tacoma is lifted and I still use one of those narrow ramps. At home I just back my truck into the gutter and at the track I just get 2-3 people to help. It makes for a good ice breaker heh. Try

Re: Suggest a ramp

OP, I just bought a 4x7 trailer from Tractor trailer for $499 to haul my bike around in the F 150. It seemed more of a hassle loading and unloading out of the truck by myself.

Not sure if it is an option....but it is one of the better investments I have made until I can afford an enclosed trailer
