Wow.... I'm a LOT more cautious than ANY of those guys.

Seriously, back into a ditch, or up to a curb, or at least at the bottom of a driveway... all will greatly reduce the steepness.

I can walk mine up... I don't LIKE doing it, but never had a problem. But I sure as am not gonna try riding up... especially on most of those guy's ramps.

i load mine into the truck bed all the time. Its getting it back out thats the hard part.

However, I will admit that the new modular "step" that they sell that plug into your trailer hitch reciever are a send. Make it so much easier.

this is a crude picture of the contraption im talking about in the above post:



ETA: Its similar to what they sell now for dirtbikes but, think an industrial extra strength version for sport bikes that lowers all the way to the ground so you can roll the bike on, then jack it up a few feet to keep it off the ground while transporting with loops so you can tie the bike down after it gets put in, and possibly a wheel chock up front to stabilize the tire.

I dropped my bike one time at a trackday.. end of the day, tired, loading up..I walked it up on the trailer.. then lost my balance and it fell away from me...
fortunatly it did not go off the trailer and all i got was embarrassed...
but some of the stuff those guys did in the video was hard to watch...
with my jacked up 3/4 ton 4 wheel drive, i always got help...
now I have a 4' wide, 12' long arched ramp for that, should not need help, should be able to ride right up and walk it down.

I've had better experiences with a curb, my mom's teaching books, and a lid to a cooler.

These people are just dumb

Ask for help whenever possible, especially at the track. There's plenty of people at the track that will help. Don't be afraid to ask.

I would take my tail gate off my 90 nissan truck when in a pinch. It actually worked well. Worst thing I've ever tried with a 2 by 4 and a cinder block. Ive never dropped a bike. Thankfully
