    Looking to load a smallish motorbike in a garage. The fiamma carry moto seems to be up to the job of holding it secure but how do you get yours in. Backwards or forwards and do you have someone in the garage pulling it in. Probably quite easy in practice but new to all this so any advice welcome.

    Hi talaris
    I dont personally load a motorbike in a garage but would think its easier to go in bars first. seen many people do this with a ramp.

    check your axle loading though as too much weight behind the axle will be a problem

    I always load mine bars first. I pushed it into a Garage with only one door at first, that was hard work.

    This Geist with identical doors both sides makes putting it in so much easier and lashing it or strapping it down is now a doddle.

    I also use a short scaffold plank which doubles as extra support to my levelling ramps.
