I would advise you against that ramp if you are loading bike by yourself. It can be a pain in the trying to step on all the "rungs" either loading or unloading.

I have a Titan too, and I use a bi-fold atv ramp, but I wouldn't recomend it. My bikes always get caught up on the lower fairings and I have to have someone either lift da ramp, or da bike. Luckily I haven't busted any fairings yet, or worse, drop my bike! The Titan's end is way high, so a curb definitely helps!!

This is what i use http://www.discountramps.com/black-w...cycle-ramp.htm but i am going into a f250 but i have about 1/2 in at peak of ramp under fairing. When loading a bike with a extended swing arm i have to lift the ramp or find a ditch. Need to look at total length of ramp and if they have any bow to it. Just my thoughts on it. Hate bottoming out half way up the ramp.

If you're gonna be using them a lot, I reccommend the black widdows.
Long, arched, bi-foldable, and you can connect them together if you want to make them wider.

I never use a trailer any more since getting these.

If the ramp has an arch in it most of the sharp edge is taken away where the ramp joints to the truck bed/tailgate. That sharp edge will grab the bike on a straigh ramp as the front tire is going into the truck because ground distance on the bike is lessened.

an arched ramp eliminates that.

I have a Titan, I found a ramp similar to black widow on ebay for 200. I load my ST1300 by myself.

Guitarman has a similar ramp to that- it's a good investment.

I only use the two small outside sections on mine.
They fold up smaller than a regular non folding set of ramps.

You only need the center piece if your bike weighs more than 750 lbs, or if you just want to ride the bike into the bed.

When i go to the track everything pretty much has a place in the back o fht truck. Once i get the bike in the back i use the ramps to roll the generator in the back of the truck to. then stack them 2 one side of the bike.
