    The Bubba Lift Method saves all that money you'ld nonmaly spend on a ramp. Can give it to the chiropractor instead.

    I've used that method many times in my younger days. It's pretty easy with a smaller bike, that's longer. The trick is to grab just like he shows.

    Experience tells me that it's only a matter of time till that ol boy blows out his back...
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    I .….for one...…. could never load a bike by myself using a portable ramp...... and unloading it was even more dangerous......with two people it is fairly easy to load and unload one by lifting or lowering it one wheel at a time....as he did....but with one person in the truck to steady it and one on the ground.... that know what they are doing.... if I do it by myself ......I back up against a road bank or mound that is the same height as the truck or use a trailer...

    I did buy a pair of those aluminum ramps...... but after one attempt to use them ….I gave them to a guy that I really didn't like...

    I know a guy who broke his back loading a 4-Wheeler via ramps....also I was at a camp ground once and this guy set a 2x6 up on his tail gate....then proceeded to shoot his mouth off to his buddies (and everyone else within a 1/2 mile) about how easy it is to load a bike into a pickup truck....he crashed and burned and I tried not to laugh too loud...

    Be careful out there. Be safe. &#x1f642;
