Has or does anyone here ever do it?? If so, did work ok?? How'd ya load her up??? Was it stable????
Thanks but the tailgate won't be a major issue because both my pickup trucks have a regular 8' bed so the tailgate can be closed after it's been loaded. Just have to use care when actually loading and unloading. TerryWicked said:I recently made a post about loading an 883 HD into pickup trucks several times. (this was done by hand-4 hands) This does not make me an expert on a MC that weighs twice as much, a Goldwing, but I did learn a few things... A couple of thoughts.
1. Those cables that hold the tailgate in place can rust out and fail in just a couple of years, you dont want that to happen with your $20,000 MC in the lurch. I once owned a pickup on which one of the cables failed when opening the gate to sit on, and I am not that heavy. (F150 1992)
2. It follows that if your truck bed is shorter that the wheel base of the MC you will need a sturdy piece of metal, a beam of some sort.
3. I guess the big issue is finding the right loading dock, berm, for on and off loading.
Just a few thoughts.
