I have yet to load the streetfighters, but I've loaded and unloaded the dual-sports with no problem. And although the dual-sports are lighter, my Husqvarna is a lot taller than the SF and doesn't have as much torque. So getting the SF's on there will be no problem.
If you want more info on the ramps I bought just send me a PM.
Thanks for the info. I think I might need to invest in more/better ramps, Im using a much narrower and shorter ramp.
The last time I had to load my r1150r into my truck I snuck over and used the K-Mart loading dock after they were closed. They had ramp/blocks to back my truck up on, and a hydraulic lift-gate to lower into the bed. It made the process really easy.
