But it actually DID close.
I've just got to make some "adjustments" to the ramp bumpers...
They are 3" tall, and 6" bumpers would decrease the break-over angle at the top, to a manageable level...
I'm currently using a pair of 4' ramps to keep the approach angle reasonable...

NICE!! I think this is my option but will need to haul in a cargo trailer (more storage also). Either a Spyder, or a micro car. I like the single axle option plus the ability to back up more than just 2 feet.

We had originally planned on getting one of the Compass RUVs, and tow the bike on a trailer.
Then: we realized that we'd be about 38 feet or so long!
This has everything folded-up in a 31 foot package...

I think I would have determined the answer to that question before plunking down$100K in cash and storing it at the dealers for over 6 months.

You wouldn't have wanted to see the looks that my Missus was giving me, as I loaded it up.



Or WOULD you?

Looks like a great fit. And I bet it was a lot easier than my old toy hauler with a lift. I just kept picturing the lift getting halfway up and the Harley tippi g off the edge.

I actually don't!
I didn't want to "torque her up" any more than was necessary!

Just FYI bob, I manually raise the front jacks when I load my ultra. It decreases the approach angle quite a bit.

That's a great-looking rig!
I was toying around with the idea of giving the front jacks a bit of a workout...
The Spyders have a pretty long wheelbase, and only 4.3" of ground clearance.
The bike hangs up right at the centerline; at the top of the ramp...
