Extra Loading Ramp

The door on the Keystone Cougar 325SRX is only 6 feet tall. That makes the door very steep as a ramp. Keystone corrected that by adding a extra ramp attached to the door via hinges. For a golf cart, ATV or non street motorcycle this would work fine. But Ruby, our 2006 Honda Goldwing, kept dragging on the hinge. I thought about placing 2x12 boards on the ramp at a location where the rear tire would ride up on the board when the Goldwing underbelly was at its lowest point.
But after some experimentation I decided that was not enough. So I built the ramp displayed in the photos below. It is lightweight and fits between the rear of Ruby and the door when traveling. Also it was very cheap to make. The extra ramp makes the incline less steep which feels better when backing 900 pounds of motorcycle down the ramp.
