Motorcycle ramp

I have a friend that is going to the track with me this weekend and needs a motorcycle ramp so he can get his bike in the truck...Does anyone have one that I can borrow for the weekend to help him out? I really wish I had a bigger trailer, but I don't :(

hmm - you are 33 miles from me - I'm at 610 north and 290...Would you consider meeting me at 225 and 610 if I give you $20 or something? I have to get the ramp to my friend that lives at 59 and 99 in Sugarland

I feel bad because I told him he could use my trailer, but we were at a bar and were drinking and I didn't think about the fact that I would need it for the race....:BangHead: I don't think sometimes....

A trailer would work too I guess, but I wouldn't expect someone to let a stranger borrow their trailer....

Thanks, but here's the deal...I'm leaving tonight (if I can get out of here) and he will be leaving Sunday morning. So he's probably going to have to come pick it up - so someone near 59 would be the best...Please help so we can both go drag a knee!

typically you should be able to rent a trailer from u haul, they even have motorcycle trailers but they're hard to find. this weekened might be hard though becuase its a holiuday so a lot of people are moving

Ramp? You don't need no stinkin' ramp!
You and your buddy lift the front of the bike by the bottom of the fork tubes into the truck. Grab the swingarm and lift the back end.
Bike loaded. Reverse procedure to unload.
