ATV/Motorcycle Ramp $59.99.....worth it???

I came across this ramp at harbor freight and wondered what your thoughts were on it.


From the website..... http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=46862

"No more struggle to position individual ramps. This ramp is wide enough to handle your ATV or lawn tactor with ease. Sturdy enough for the heaviest motorcycle. Folds in half for easy storage.


1250 lb. load capacity
Safety chains keep ramp secure while loading
Rugged 14 gauge steel construction
Weather and scratch-resistant powder coat finish "





At the end of the day, would you trust this to load and unload your bike from a truck bed??? I got a 20% coupon from harbor freight, so it would only cost me $47.99+tax

this will be going into a 08 f150...not lifted or anything. what we'll probably do is load it with the truck backed up on the street, and the bike up on the curb so we have a few inch lift to help

other than the length...you don't have a problem with the strength of the ramps?

I have a similiar set, and they are pain in the (at times). Trying to walk the bike up while trying to step on each rung can be fun while by yourself. If you've always got someone to help you load up then I say get them.

i used to load my 929 with those ramps but I got rid of them because I only load dirtbikes now, and prefer my 6" wide ramp. when tired, i didn't like trying to step around those rungs.

if you can use the terrain to your advantage, they work well. I would place my wheels at the end of my driveway and get a running start with the bike on. I would normally get the front wheel on the tailgate and then I would clutch the rest of the bike up there. the safety chains always did their job.

I actually loaded my bike in a 07 F150 with 6" lift no problems. Great ramp nice and light weight, and works perfect. But I dont have a bike and at this time have no plan to get a bike.
