I park my bike inside, and have 3-1/2" rise from top of pavement to top of threshold. I use a 5'x12" piece of treated 3/4" plywood (scrap from a jobsite), with a 2x4 scrap screwed in about 4" from the end. The 4" lip sits on the flat section of the aluminum threshold lip, as the ramp end butts up against the oak threshold cap. That's it.

If you want it to not warp/bend in the center (over time), then just take a 2x4 scrap, and screw it in flat somewhere in the center of the ramp.

Things to look for? Etc.. Every motorcycle ramp I've seen is for loading in to the back of a pick up or something like that. Any suggestions are welcomed.

i got somethin for you. it's an aluminum catwalk off a tractor. i used to use it to get my bike up into sara's apt that had a six inch step. i think it measure's bout 13 3/4" x 33 1/2".

you can have it for a cold bud if you got one.

i'm in pasadena. let me know if you want it.

Ok.. roommate. No pix. Two, the garage is converted, three just got a ramp. I would be happy with a cover on the enclosed patio, but between all the bikes being stolen and he psycho ex... So going to start parking them in the living room for a while. All the 'great' ideas. I just went with a ramp. Just wanted to know if anyone else had one that they recommended. All that said and done, one of her friends are in a wheel chair, so it works out.

Also on the 600lbs.. bike and rider included, yes almost 533 lbs. DRY weight and me 172lbs is 705lbs total.. I understand it's split between two axles. duh. Another 30lbs wet. Now I haven't looked up to see what my roommate's bike weights and not going to ask her what she weighs. (read in to that statement)

As far as all the 2x4's, I don't think she'd get it up a 2x4. (Think I said that already)

@Anatram ~ Thanks for the offer. Again, just ordered one. Logic was her friend needs a ramp to enter the house. Because my original though was to just build one. Not had to do. (Just needed tools.. I would have provided the beer and pizza. haha)

The busa really I"m not worried about. It's her bike.. She has a cruiser with cruise pegs and lay down bars (almost like a cage vs sliders). They stick out as far if not further than the handle bars.. Very tight fit.

LMAO.. but you're one, a family man (i.e. w/ fam at the house). Kind of hard to have my co-ed, naked twister parties with your wifey and kids running around. Ok.. So what, I don't have those, but if I wanted to.. I could....Well I could dream about it..

But TWO... YOU'RE IN SPRING!.... WAY THE F out in SPRING!.. I'm getting tired just thinking about me having to drive to all the places I do daily on the sw and galleria area. LMAO.

Plus, that's why I because the roommate is because of the psycho ex. Good friend.
