      I've loaded all my Victory's into my trucks at one time or another. I have two items that make it a breeze for one person to load or unload a bike as big as a Vision in/out of a tall 3/4 ton pickup bed on level ground-a little slope makes it even easier.
      #1 A self locking wheel chock mounted in the truck bed. I have an El Cheapo Harbor Freight chock with a few modifications made to insure it clears the back of the Vision's front fender. There's lots of nicer ones out there but for the little I use it the HF one's fine.

      #2 10' long, super wide, arched ramp. 1,500 lb capacity & will fold up to fit in the cab. I didn't go cheap on the ramp and like anything it's a bit scary the first time but now my pulse doesn't go up at all and it's very routine easy job.

      Most all of those loading fails, along with stupidity, were caused by having a short, narrow, straight ramp, then the bike bottoms out on the edge of the tailgate & there's nowhere to put their feet down-with the wide & arched 10' long ramp it's a piece of cake

      You mean you didn't use a 2x4 and run along side the bike hoping it would go into the bed!?!

      That's a nice ramp.
