Servicing & Transporting Your Machine
To provide traction and grip, your loading ramp should be made of perforated metal. It should also come equipped with cleats or brackets, and straps that attach to the truck bed or trailer. A good loading ramp will also have sideboards to help keep the tires from slipping off the ramp sides. These are awesome to have after a long day of riding. Think about it: Your once-clean machine will be soaked when you return to the truck and trailer and the mud-covered tires will be slippery on the ramp.
RIDER SAFETY TIP: HOW’S YOUR TRAILER LOOKING?
Just like you’ve carefully checked your machine, you should also check your trailer before taking it on the road. Look at the tires, the electrical hook-ups, the lights and the floor. Never use a trailer that’s in rough shape to transport your machine (or anything else!).
