Not everyone wants to, but let’s face it, one day it’s going to happen. You’ll need to put your bike in the back of a truck bed or on a trailer. We were in need of a ramp ourselves and found Discount Ramps with a ramp for every need starting with a small service ramp for things like ATVs all the way up to car ramps. We called up, asked a few questions, and were told that the Big Boy II was just what we needed to handle our bikes.

The Big Boy II ($449.99) is a two-piece aircraft-grade-aluminum loading-motorcycle ramp system measuring 10 feet long by 38 inches wide and consists of two 19-inch-wide folding ramps. It is designed to load all types of motorcycles from sport bikes to Harley’s Touring motorcycles into full-size pickup trucks, trailers. The Big Boy II includes two quick-connecting support brackets that hold the two sections together for safety while loading motorcycles and also eliminates ramp flex for safe loading. These connecting brackets also allow the ramp to be split in two sections making it easy to handle and more compact for storing truck bed.

The extra-long 10-foot length combined with the 12 degrees offset in the hinge acts the same as an arched ramp and provides additional ground clearance to eliminate bottoming when loading into 4×4 pickup trucks or loading lowered bikes. We also got a set of extra-wide tie-downs ($39.99). These industrial-grade tie-downs are heavy-duty and 2 inches wide with ratchet strap designs and are 6 feet long.
