Question Bike Ramp Length?

So I recently found out that there's no way to get my cruiser (1300 VTX) onto my bed using my current 6 foot long flat tri-fold ATV ramps. I need long arched ramps so I don't drag the motor. I was wondering if anyone with a bike and duelly or lifted 4x4 could tell me how long of ramps they use and maybe a place to get them without breaking the bank?

Do you have a sloped driveway or a slope nearby? I have to put my truck down in the street, back tires at the lowest point in order to use my ramps.

Just trying to think of a cheap option for ya.

Yeah, I have some that are 6.5' and if it is tight, that is what I do.

The physics are against me

Yeah, I even tried using my 6 foot ones off a nearby 2 foot wall and I even pulled my truck up a hillside, but with my bike being so low and my flat bed being so high it just wasn't happening. But thanks for the advice
