i always have the bike running to get it up.
i use this method for my 450 and 950, although i do need to psych myself up with the 950 every time.
Down is simple, up is nerving. ha.
i have dropped the 950 a few times and i have crunched my tailgate 3 times when i forget to tie down the ramp to the truck and the bike spits it away, that almost always sucks.
Nice thing about the readymade ramps is that they fold, but the cost is pretty high, for sure compared to $30
I need to psych myself up to get my 230 down
