As of yet, I have no time off road with it, only 20 miles on road. As for the ramp, if you're not familiar with it, it's called the Rampage lift. I used it for the Wing for years and love it. We carried the Wing many thousands of miles while on different vacations. This time, the Wing got carried ONE LAST TIME and, we carried the Twin home with it. That Africa Twin Adventure Sport model hovers around 550 lbs. So, loading it and unloading it, yeah, I would use absolutely nothing else.Enjoy that bike, they are a blast off road. I luv the loading ramp you've got . Awesome.
