I got the perfect setup for loading bikes at my house. I back the truck up to the curb and drop the tailgate and it is almost level with the yard or driveway.

The moral of the story is...

Don't high center.

Get:
a longer ramp,
an arched ramp,
a lower vehicle,
some help from the slope of the ground,
a clue

Do you have the same driveway when you unload the bike?

I prefer a trailer and a wide ramp. I walk on the ramp with the bike up to the trailer.

up thing I noticed from that video is that almost every video clip had at least 3 ppl standing around watching the catastrophy unfold. Why not just get them to help load the bike
