    [​IMG]Hey guys, for the benefits of those who wonder if they could carry their big bikes on the back of the truck, YES you can! This is my new Ram crewcab with a 5'7 bed, loaded up my BMW R1200 GSA.
    Loaded and unloaded by myself (thre is a technique/trick to it)
    I did wonder how it would fit and it was perfect!
    Any questions, just ask. If you need size of the BMW, just look it up, I am not sure exactly.
    Cheers from Nashville.

    Dam, it is not easy to post a photo here!

    I think the dip shit would have made it if he pulled the truck forward so that the rear tires were in the gutter. It would have lessened the angle and he wouldn't have bottomed out. He's got balls, I'll give him that :lol3

    Post the photo on a free host site like imagshack.com, copy the forum code of your photo, paste it in your message box on this forum. I had the same problem and others here helped my out...didn't get it at first.

    I'd love to hear what thoughts are bouncing around in the skull of someone that would try this at that ramp angle.

    Artistic technique - let your imagination go wild. I cringed and almost looked away - didn't want to see a nice bike trashed.


    Absolutely. Always put the wheels in the lowest spot. That bike didn't have enough clearance, looked like it hi-centered. Less acute angle between the ramp and bed, he might have made it. A dirt bike wouldn't have been a problem.

    the real question is, did they learn anything? No helmet, shorts, no backup plan. Obviously they didn't think through all the "angles" (pun intended) not sure they did afterward, either.
