Default Trackmoto garage dolly

Edit: Sold.



This thing is a wheeled platform on which your rear wheel sits, plus a pad for your kickstand. Makes it easy to pivot and move your bike around.

Beefy construction, high quality locking casters.

For video of it in use and more details visit http://mytrackmoto.com

Bought this to see if I could improve the parking logistics in my garage. While it works fine, it's not well suited to my particular needs. It would work very well for someone with a large/heavy bike.

Cost me $100 plus shipping. Essentially brand new. Want to clear out the garage. BoRNie price $60, not willing to ship but will meet you partway if you're anywhere near southwestern CT.

Is there any particular reason this didn't work for you?

I've been considering a product similar this, or the Park-n-Move, to more easily spin the VFR around in my garage. Although I've gotten pretty good at walking the bike down my driveway backwards, it gets a little hairy when the front tire takes a ride on some of loose stone from our driveway's extension.

Just the shape of the space in my garage. I have a pocket of room about 8 feet long to one side of the garage door where my bike gets parked. I ride in at an angle, but the bike is then too close to my car. I need to get the tail over closer to the wall.

This requires backing and filling, numerous times. Not difficult but it'd be nice to have some sort of device that'd just let me swing it over. This didn't quite do that as elegantly as I wanted it to.

If you have a center stand, Check this out: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xNwhSg2pg08
I saw a DIY a week or two ago that was essentially a lazy Susan turntable bearing and a piece of 12x12 steel plate.

At first I thought you were going to suggest he grip the bike with his teeth like the old timey guy at the beginning.
