Notice the tailgate is sloping down, we are using tailgate extenders. Without the extenders the bike would "bottom out". See below for tailgate extender information.
Motorcycles with shorter wheelbases like stock sport bikes (60" long - center of axle to center of axle) will load onto 36" high surfaces without the extenders. Cruiser wheel bases are about 68 long. For surfaces higher than 31" you have several options to "cheat to allow successful loading. 1 Position your truck to attain the 31 tailgate height, by backing up to a curb or hill, or an apron on a driveway. The ramp stores easily, simply fold the ramp in half and place it on it's edge leaning against the truck beds' sidewall.
Secure the ramp to prevent it from falling over onto the motorcycle. If you position the tiedown strap from the bike through the ramp down to the ring in the trucks bed you would prevent the ramp from damaging the motorcycle. This ramp has many other features.
