    A ramp for a van.

    I bought a van and got my engineer to make a ramp to put the bike in. The engineer was next door to my brothers bakery, my brother has a Honda CBR600F (1998 model) so when the ramp was finished we tried his bike as a test.

    CBR600F did not fit!!! **** I just spent $4K AU for nothing. Pissed off with my self for not checking before I bought the van, I got a tape measure and checked the height (the width was not an issue) and the measurement stated that it shout fit but the bike just won't make it through.

    I asked the engineer to make the ramp longer, as long as the van so the ramp fit's in the van and a Walla the bike made it through without touching any where. The problem was the ramp was too short and made it steep into the van; the longer ramp was the way to go.

    The van had tie down points but I can only use the back tie down points as the front tie down points are in a terrible position and once tied pushes the bike backwards out of the van. Using the back two points pushes the bike forward and is OK.

    So I am off in 4 hours to a ride day at Broadford (Australia) and for the first time I will be driving the van there with the bike in it. I will tell you if any thing goes wrong.

    Maz, one of the benefits of a van is that you don't have to compress the bike's suspension by tying it down.

    I have 2 chocks in my van. I strap the front wheels in there, and then I attach from the rearsets across the seat to the upper wall in each lateral direction.

    The bikes can't go forward or back, and can't fall down..

    I think my ramps are 8' long.

    You own your own engineer? and he actually builds things?

    This could be dangerous if it catches on over here . . .

    Re: A ramp for a van.

    $4k thats a lot even in aussie dollars. couldn't you just buy a long ramp (or you can stack 2 on top of each other (the second one halfway up the first) for a lot less money.

    ...the VAN cost him 4K.. The ramps were provided by his personal engineer.
