Looks interesting to say the least, but word of warning, don't push it out the garage if you live on a hill. :cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1:

How do you get it off the center stand? If you can push it forward, does it have brakes? If not you will need to use something else to make the dolly stop so you can push it off the stand.

Better yet, get a bike jack. They work very well for moving a bike around a garage. I used to turn my bikes around in my shop with a bike jack, it was easier than turning them around on their own wheels and faster and you have the jack for working on the bike.

Wow at those lights. Bet it looks like a 747 coming down the road.

Yea,if that was my garage,it'd have to be a fictional video. I sometimes have barely enough room to stand on something like that and turn myself around.:dude:

Guys I finally done it,my Garage is clean and has been for 5 or 6 months now.
I finally firgued it out or just got tired of never having room or not finding anything everytime I needed something to do a 5 minute job it would take 30 minutes looking for the tool I needed.
It boils down to 2 things in my book.
If you get it out PUT IT BACK UP.
If you have not used it in the last 12 months YOU DON'T NEED IT.
Anyhow this is what has worked for me.....



I agree with exaivd,i just use my motorcycle jack to put my bike werever needed and I have it for working on the bike as well.

Get behind me Satan! :D

What about the things in your garage that you throw away that you need right after you throw it away? ;)

Oh yeah, how does one get a goldwing off of that scooter? He must have had the engine out of that thing because I know it takes me more than one try to get mine on the center stand.

Thats what I always used to say and that is why I always had a garage full.

I kept a tool I said I would always use one day for 10 years ,when the day came I needed it,I knew I had it but looked for 3 days and finally went out a bought another one...........

I KNOW exactly what you mean. It turns out my son and wife like to take tools and not return them to where they are supposed to be. I have double fo a couple items in the tool chest.



I have actually gotten rid of several garbage bags full of 'stuff'. My wife keeps giving me the 12 month speech and she is probably right. I am finding that I need more room for my GW stuff, so the garage isn't getting any bigger for sure. I have some cleaning in order to keep the peace with wifey. :)

All garages must have hidden magnets that only attract motor vehicles, tools, etc, and have artificial intelligence to discriminate their owners interests.



Why else would my Garage be full of bikes and vintage snowmobiles?



An empty garage is blasphemy.

Getting it UP on the stand looks like no problem, but usually you push the bike forward to get it DOWN. With this rig you would have to block the wheels of the plate to get it to stay put while you push the bike forward off from it. Does it have brakes on the tires to help with this or are you on your own to find a solution.
