Actually cold in NY today so into the minivan for the trip to Queens.  Open wide:

The wife refused to help push it up the ramp so Harbor Freight to the rescue.  ATV winch mounted to a stout board gets stuck between the front seats, cable payed out and wireless remote zip-tied to the left handlebar. Motorcycle battery in the driver footwell with binder clips making the connection.

With the seats out the mounts in the floor are perfect for tie-downs.

You do have to remove the mirrors and any kind of fairing is a no-go.  The instrument panel clears the top of my Hyundai Entourage/Kia Sedona with only a quarter inch to spare.  Once in there is more headroom.

Mr. G. Ownr, now that you know it fits try clutching it up.
I thought winches were girls, Oh sorry that's wenches.

I originally got the winch to haul a rented rear tine tiller into the soccer mom special. Being able to put the GRiSO in with the touch of a button was just a bonus.

G11 owner "uncle" of this board clutches his up a skinny one-board ramp -- I don't even like to watch that procedure.

Your straps are to thin. Try to imagine you have to break hard, the bike comes through you.
And to get the bike in just start it any walk it up the ramp, I do that on a hanger, so why not to get it in the car.
