I can remember someone talking about a great bike trolley, that you can roll your bike onto, then move it around your garage easily, i have spent ages trying to find it and came up blank, all i can remember is that it was an Australian made product... i think Smile

Any one know what i'm talking about, or have recommendations???

I know that which you talk about.....I think there are a few the same...but most need to work off under engine frame rails and wheels to lift and hold bike....i.e. you never see them being used with bikes with full fairings.....so be sure to check that out

I found 2, one requires the bikes sidestand to be used, with the horrendous sidestand implementation Bimota thrust upon us all, there is no way this will be a suitable solution..

The other one is a Pommy one, that looks suitable, but i'm sure there was one like this from Australia..

I have a dolly that you put the back wheel into, rather than the front. The castors have brakes on them. Once the wheel is in you can turn and park the bike easily.
All of these systems need a smooth level floor - unless you get big castor wheels

Thanks for the feedback guys, weed those dynamoto stands look so good, they are a bit expensive, but it's nice to see something manufactured locally and beautifully engineered...

I went and checked out their website www.dynamoto.com.au they have great flexibility

I have found that the purchase price is soon forgotten if the product works well. Better than spending 50% less on an alternative product that will piss you off every time you use it.

This is my favorite but it is pricey and they won't sell the alternate mounts if you don't already own one.

I have one of these but need to fabricate my own mount for the DB6 unless they get back to me re: making a mount for me.
