I've always been able to just push my old Triumph up a couple of ramps into a pickup. With the R65 I need help from one other person. But a winch in the back of a truck could come in handy for lots of stuff that I've used a comealong for.

I'd like to see him get it out of the truck. :mrgreen:

Good to see him wearing his protective hog loading apparel tho.
I mean, imagine if someone walked past and he didn't have it on. They might think he was just a 4'-6" little fella with a problem.

Here is a nice portable winch with a remote, so you can ride her up the ramp.

I nearly bought one of these http://www.mswmotorcycletrailers.com/ before I chose my Motolug. I only changed my mind because the Motolug is easier to store in the garage. Quite an impressive piece of kit.
