The bike I am buying this week runs, but is not registered currently, not to mention that I am not confident enough to ride it the 40 miles from where it is to my apartment. I am likely going to grab a rental pickup truck and load the bike in the back..... that is.... if somone can help me figure out how I can get it into the back.... and then strap it down!
Obviously I don't have any experience with this. How can I get the bike onto the truck other than using a nearby hill (not an option). Is it really possible to use wooden planks and something such as this to hold up a 1991 ex500:
I read the reviews on this, but I am realitively skeptical. I know there are plenty of motorcycle specific ramps out there, but I am working on a rather tight budget after paying for the bike and gear.
Next, once I get the bike into the bed of the truck, is there a specific way to strap it down to the bed? I'll likely be doing this on friday, so I appreciate any quick responses
