Well I know that.

You know that.

The poor saps in that video clearly don't.

My previous house had a nice steep ditch next to the road. If you put the back wheels of a pickup at the bottom, the tailgate just about touches the ground. I could drive little bikes on to a truck with it, but it'd take a 3' ramp for heavier bikes.

My current house has a nice steep bank next to the road. It works just as well. The downside is that you have to park your truck sideways on a public road to load anything.
