jarald john: what a waste of time.i would have loaded the truck on that bike within
tripmind: I liked the part where he drives a Commanche.
elwood bigman: that is one big bike in one small truck
bos dad: I think I see a problem, getting the front tire out of the rack once it is
on the ground. it looks like it would just roll backward every time you
tried to get the bike out. other than that a really good basic idea. also,
after you get the air shocks or air bags, the truck will sit level and you
will have a hard time getting the bike to roll backwards and keep tension
on the cable. I would suggest the air Bags they work better and are a lot
stronger than the shocks. then you could let the air out when you get where
your going. just carry a portable air tank for the return trip.
taskforceripper91: That's awesome!
local378: very smart love it
jackson j: I don't think so
David Bassett: good job
Joe Arrowood: Nice looking Jeep Comanche.
Fahad Alhajri: well engineered!
godhempus: you'd been better off to pull the pickup with that bike!
henry cole: Dumb ass
shamarone: I said, no way that's going to fit in there and not sit on the tailgate.
hulkhatepunybanner: I think that's a "Speak 'n Spell" prototype on the fuel tank.
MrWyobill: Jesse this is great, I'll bet it cost a whole lot less then the ones on the
market now. My question is how are you unloading it with the winch?
MrThememyselfandi: Just great idea and great design i want to compliment you on that. i have a
little question,,, whats the size of the steel channel that you are using
for the ramps ???? thank you and again,,, great idea and design.
Paulsfullofshit: Wow, you're a freaking idiot.
Paulsfullofshit: Hey freak head. Go buy a bike and come back and talk to us. freaking idiot
CommentPoliceOfficer: How do you even practice something like that. I have seen literally
hundreds of videos of people messing up this procedure so that tells me,
"Hey, if i can think of any other way to do this and eliminate that huge
margin for error I think I will." Try not to be so critical of the
ingenuity of people like Jesse who built a home made system that, as you
can see, works quite well. The world needs more people like this.
ernesto11953: MrByeceeya, this is great. I would appreciate if you e-mail the drawings to
posilipos: With a bike like that you just ride home. Useless..
Iowaracefan: A few minor tweaks to the over all design and you have a sellable item.
Very nice. If you don't mind, I'll be borrowing your idea for a trailer
JigginOnYoAzz: Glad I Don't Live There. Would've Woke Me Up. Cant' Get Any Sleep Over
Jesse Wright: John. I could sell you that one, basically for the cost of materials. but
you'd have to pic, it up, maybe make some alterations to fit your truck.
I'm in Virginia. email me if you're interested. I don't have a pickup any
more so it's of no use to me.
John Doe: Should have just towed the truck with the motorcycle
Indra Firdaus: Aha! Thats brilliant ;)
Jesse Wright: @MrThememyselfandi 2 inch wide channel. I would have used aluminum but way
too expensive, so I went with steel. I think I have construction pics
somewhere, I'll email them to you if I can find them.
Rob Brock: Brilliant! :)
Jesse Wright: Thanks for all the compliments, I didn't draw any plans, just built to fit
the truck and the prefabbed chock. About the wheels, 5 or 6 inch, I don't
recall. It's in storage now because I no longer have a truck. Working on a
hitch mounted chock that lifts the front wheel off the ground and basically
"flat tows" the bike. The dolly and ramps, along with the winch are all for
sale. Pick up by purchaser at my location in VA.
Jay Vee: Oh great, glad to know you got one at a swap meet! Makes the project even
DrakeCake80: damn that's an ugly ass bike.. i could have saved u some trouble and drove
both of those peices of crap too your local scrapyard, they would have paid
you more if u would have left that HUNK A JUNK loaded on da back of that
ugly ass truck......
Bruce Pritchett: I like this solution. Simple and effective. Kudos.
kennungesser: Awesome gizmo!! Don't listen to the negatives. Sport bikes are great for
younger riders, and short runs. I could have bought any sport bike I
wanted. Settled on a Triumph Daytona..until I test rode it. First 3 miles
were great..the rest no so much. Got a 2012 Triumph Street Triple R and
have just as much fun, but for waaay longer. My next "bike"...Can-Am
Spider. So what? And this idea is just smart "nada Plumber"..even if you
could ride it up, why take the chance? This guys has build skills!!!
studleylee: Very Nice Great work!!!
Jesse Wright: Yes, I replaced it with an aluminum ramp we found at a swap meet. Big
difference. The plank was a "let's make it happen" move.
ping head: That was awesome
Jesse Wright: I'm glad as well. Wouldn't want to wake you up. Stay asleep like most
americans, everything's gonna be just fine. G'night.
dbest1a: Very nice
erwin solis: great idea and easy design. my cuestion is wich size of wheels and load
Jesse Wright: It does have 3 ramps. but the whole purpose for the setup is to not need
another person to load and unload.
stevest1300: Nice rig Guys. But wouldn't it be simpler to have 3 ramps and winch the
bike up with someone on the bike to balance it? Just sayin'....
Jesse Wright: That was the idea, one man operation. I'm pretty much a loner and seems it
shows when there's something I need help with. We taped it thinking this
could be one of those "fail" vids, but lo and behold it all worked. Too bad
the Jeep suspension is so weak. My Jeep's a 92 (I think they ended the
model in 93) base model with only AC. And a 4-cyl that will blow the socks
off any skateboard (non motorized) out there. 150K+ on the motore so ????.
But 22-25 mpg, so !!!!!
Aspencade1984: Great job Jesse, I'm very impressed with the way one person can load/unload
a Gold Wing onto a pickup. I like your pickup as well. I bought a fully
loaded, brand new, Commache way back in 1986 and drove that thing for 10
years then gave to my son. Wish I still had it.
Larry Carroll: I like it little more work to do on center ramp though but it seems to work
Jesse Wright: First, Kath, the tailgate is suspended by steel, not cables. secondly,
you'd almost have to be UNDER the tailgate to get hurt, unless by a falling
motorcycle. Truck's a 1/2 ton, bike's 800 lbs. Now, though, I don't leave
the tailgate on, not necessary, bike fits all the way in. Thanks for your
concern though. But, as is my approach to many things that might or might
not work.............you jump of the cliff and build your wings on the way
briansmobile1: Great work guys. Pretty clever setup on a limited budget.
rdmikeg: This is great! I own a small motorcycle repair shop, and I am the only one
that can manually load a bike in the truck. If you would be so kind to mail
me the drawings, I would love to put this to work. Thank you in advance.
John Humphrey: nice job,could you send me a closeup pic of how you hooked it to the truck
Thanks my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
nadaplumber: why are all the bikers lacking the rider skill to load a bike but still
insist on hauling it somewhere? . If you have that LITTLE rider skill that
you cant keep it on a ramp then get a wider ramp. but if you cant even keep
it on an 8 or 10 inch wide path and then apply the breaks without crashing
through your truck bed then at the very least ride on the track and stay
off public streets. Get some basic rider skills before ridding on the
streets. That is exactly what a motorcycle learners is for.
