Maybe some nice quiet pipes so you don't alienate yourself when you need help getting it loaded or unloaded in the campground or RV park.
I know this is a huge generalization but you understand my point.

are you anticipating problems? If the bike bottoms out raise the front of the trailer up to lower the rear, will help the angle and decrease that.

Puma unleashed

Thanks for the suggestions, I had thought of raising the front to help with ramp angle.

Not all Harleys are loud. I sometimes wish campers would put quiet pipes on their four legged friends in campsites! Just a generalization.....

Don't have a puma but had a greywolf tt and now have a Thor outlaw.
First time I loaded the Harley, the jiffy stand spring got caught on the top of ramp, there I sat half on, half off, with jiffy stand hanging. AND ALONE!
My advice; have help first time. I'm 71 and travel alone but if anyone is around I ask to stand by, because it's a controlled slide down the ramp.

Next, buy a wheel chock, makes life easier down the road.

Last if all else fails, leave the dresser in the barn and buy a side car. See picture

Yep, it's a 2wd. Not a highway hauler, but when I take it, I look for some off road places. Having a class c now it's better for the supply runs than the bagger.

Nice! I was going to say you need to go out and get that guy dirty!

You could always make and install a flip out ramp attached to your rear ramp, gives it a little extension.

Fortunately my bikes have a little bit more ground clearance and are fairly light
