I have a two car garage. It WAS adequate (barely) for my cars and toys, but the acquisition of my K1200GT means that my little M-Roadster has been in the driveway the last couple of months under a cover when not being driven. I had considered selling my Triumph Speedmaster, but I like riding it as much as I do my K bike.

So, I've been looking on-line (of COURSE) at a few of those little centerstand dollies like the "EZ Park," etc. that allow you to move your bike into a corner or wherever, but I'm wondering which works best for the K1200 series. Do any of you folks out there in K land have any experience with these things? If so, which ones should I consider plunking a couple Benjamins down on, and (even more importantly), which ones should I not consider at all?

Thanks for your recommendations.

You could sell the car :teeth or put the bikes in the living room:teeth I have the same problem this year too just got the k12rs and the F650 this year and no room for the van or truck they will set out side this year so the bikes can be in . Next year we are building a new toy shed.
Good Luck

I built an 8x12 toy shed in my back yard for my bikes and some larger tools like the compressor and such. Problem solved.

My back yard is a hill, so the shed solution is not on the table. I was more interested in the various brands of center stand dollies, as that's the route I've settled on.

Thanks.

Can work

I have my K12RS on its dolly during the winter months, it is helpful in moving it around but it still leaves the front wheel on the ground. In practice the bike is too heavy to depress the back wheel so the front comes up on the centre stand, and while you are maneuvering it around it can come off the dolly as you try to over over come the front wheel friction, I have developed a knack to put my foot over the centre stand arm to prevent it lifting. However i still find them useful.

In lieu of all the other 'helpful' advice John, go over to Pirates Lair and look at this unit.
It looks brilliant, and I'd purchase one tomorrow if I could find an Aussie distributor.

Jerry is a preferred seller to this list and a top bloke to deal with.
Hope this is of assistance mate.

Thanks guys! I ordered a Park-N-Move yesterday, and it should be here next week. Hope this solves the problem, 'cause I didn't wanna sell any toys right now. :D
