I’m a bit old-school. Which actually means, I’m a bit tight. Ever since I started motocrossing when dinosaurs roamed the earth I’ve used a builder’s plank to transport motorcycles from the ground to the back of a van. I very nearly have a 100% record with this (it’s almost never gone wrong or let me down). But times change and, quite frankly, I’ve had enough of lugging a heavy, messy plank around when I want to take a track bike anywhere – so I’ve got the best possible alternative; the Sealey mesh folding ramp.
So I’m telling you now, if you want a ramp to load motorcycles with then get this one. Yes, when you pick it up, folded in half, it feels a bit lightweight (the entire thing weighs just 11.5kg) – the handles are a nice touch and mean that you can carry the ramp around without much effort too – but it’s brilliantly strong.
The ramp has a load capacity of 360kg. Yeah, 360kg! That’s more than enough for almost every modern bike other than the behemoths like Gold Wings and lump big Harleys. Made from powder-coated steel and strong mesh, the ramp even comes with a strap and hook so that you can tie it in securely in the back a van.
Look, it’s terrific. I’ve used it for all sorts of bikes and into all heights of vans. It’s secure, strong and easy to use. It looks very good and tucks away easily. If it was any easier to get along with it’d be called Terry and it’d make you a cup of tea first thing in the morning. At £100 it’s a no-brainer when you’re looking for a ramp. Absolutely get one of these when you can.
