I know I can get it up a ramp, just want like a 12" er so I am not as scared. I got rid of the fj, mostly cause I had to carry it on a hitch hauler once.

Lumberyard, 8 ft 4x12, probly $40. Alot heavier than aluminum but alot more affordable.Don't forget to nail on some grip strips, I saw one that had bottle caps tacked on.

it also folds and fits inside the back (inside) the truck pretty well.

buy it nice or buy it twice!
ya that one is way nice, but I already got a bed extender. If i didn't have one already i would definatly get that one.

I have a 7 foot arched ramp from quad boss. The best ramp I have had, and I have had it for 2 years. I have loaded many different bikes from GS1200s, KTM 990's to PW50's without having any issue's. I would not trust a folding aluminum ramp with anything. The arch really helps alot getting the bikes in the back, making a longer ramp not needed IMO.

Ummm, want my chunk of board? I think it would hold a 990, it holds the 200 thingy that I haul around shadowing my 950. Need it for keeps? Or just a tick?

I joist

That ramp listed in the first post looks scary with the words "imported" 13lbs weight , and 600 lb max capacity for a bike that is over 500 wet weight.
The bed extender one looks well made.

A an interesting alternative is the use of I joists. I used one for several years for dirt bikes but left it outside too much. You cut the web back a few inches on the top and the rails self center the bike. Buy it any length you want.
Never tried them with a heavy bike though and you can't beat a piece of VG fir .

The BMW only rode home when I bought it and the DR350 just uses a 6' 2x6 ramp and a little forethought in loading spots when it goes with me in the pickup.

The harbor freight cheap ramps work great...I've loaded a 950 and a few Harley's and been just fine.

I'll chime in with support of the Ready Ramp. I've had one for a few years and I absolutely love it.

They make a 1000 pound version, which is the one I have. I don't ride my bikes up it (yet) but I enjoy knowing it'll take the weight.

Hell, sell your old bed extender on Craigslist and just use this one.

Long time at least 3 years and the 250 is gone

When I load my 950 Adventure on the rack on the back of the deuce I use a 2x10 with a clip on the end of it for a hook. Works fine.

A 2 x10 with some chicken wire tacked on with roof nails makes a fine ramp. I put a light safety chain on mine to keep it in the truck bed when the gate is down. The price is right. Nobody will steal it for the metal, either.
