Hauling vulcan in ranger xlt
Ok. I saw a thread in the verses about hauling a vulcan in the back of a ranger. I have a ranger and a question. Can the tailgate hold the weight without damaging the truck? Apparently it is 6 ft 5 inches or so from front tire to rear contact patch...so some of the bike is on the tailgate. I have two cables that hold the tailgate on. Should i reinforce them somehow and buy a nice big hog ramp?
or ...buy a trailer and clog up my garage with yet another item due to the fact that i have a home owners association and cant leave the trailer outside.
I want to be able to ride the bike up into my bed. Independence baby.
