Rampage motorcycle lift

Anyone ever tried one of these http://www.rampagelift.com/ with an LT or know of someone who has?

I am curious as to whether or not it can handle the LT. The company says "no problem". However, I would like to hear from someone with non-biased, first hand experience.

Thanks.

Was down to Bob's BMW in Maryland in October and a pickup with the Rampage system pulled in with a disabled LT on board. Seemed to be a good fit. I notice in the photo on the company's web site that the truck with the gray GW on board is a compact pickup, maybe a Nissan. Should work great in an 8' bed Ford or similar truck.

Hi, Chick - no experience with the Rampage loader, butt I've seen this one in operation, loading a GW. And, the company had a demo unit at a local motorcycle show in San Antonio coupla years back and the thang sure appeared sturdy, well built and capable of handling an LT. IIRC, the inventor is from one of the Scandanavian countries, butt the construction takes place in the states- website will prolly explain that. HTH.

Barrett Allison, the CCR 2006 Chairman, has one. It is a really slick setup. Lifts the LT like it was a feather.

Looks like you need at least a 36" inseam to load that sucker! You be tippy toeing going part way up the ramp.
