    I loaded my bike today for the 1st time in this new rig. the ramp is a little to steep and the frame of the bike drags just a bit. i can think of several things that might help but i am hoping one of you folks have a fix for this.thanks for any help you can offer.

    Put a larger diameter 'fat boy' tire on it! :clown:

    Your problem is basic physics; lengthen the ramp or shorten the hog!

    Or raise the front of the trailer to flatten the angle.

    now ya'll wait...it ain't physics...its geometry. Angle of the dangle...you know.

    You might be able to offset that angle on the ramp with a few 1x6 lengths of wood.
