I was a bit worried one of those type movers would be hard to get bike on.It looks easy on video when you have plenty of space but I don't.

That little one from E Shaw looks neat. I wonder how it goes with almost 400 kg bikes. it reminds me of when I was touring in Vietnam and the guides had lots of bikes to line up at motels etc. they pulled the bike to the left so it pivoted on the kickstand and did a 180 turn quite easily. Not the sort of manoeuvre I'd take on with a Springfield. 🙂

The long plank-like dollies are probably the cheapest and I've seen Australian made models that don't have the shipping costs of the US ones.

Well hello E Shaw !!

Welcome to the forum and thanks for showing me that one - it looks like a really simple dolly.  

Three questions:
  1. Which bike are you using it with? 
  2. Where did you get it?
  3. How much?
That's all!

Thanks mate.

I use it with my Chief to swing the back around in shed to get bike flat against back wall,then hopefully the wife wont run it over.

Thanks for that ... and good to hear that it works well with a TS111.

Looking at the video, I am interested in how you get the rear tyre onto it.  

Do you have to roll/ride the bike over the bottom edge of the lifters, or does it work by just pushing it under the rear tyre?

You roll it under back tyre and use your body weight to lift rear of bike then push rear around on the 3 rollers.Very simple to use but takes a little getting used to.I usually only move rear of bike 600-900mm when taking bike out of garage and putting it away.Pulling it towards yourself is harder than pushing away but it gets easier once you get the knack.Like most things it looks easy on video when expert does it but I thought its only $70 ill try one.Now I wouldn't be without it,these bikes are quite long and hard to manourvre in tight space.
You do need a smooth floor as wheels are just ball racers.

This is what I like about this forum (or any good forum for that matter)...

I posted a video of something that I thought was a pretty good idea and am now looking at something that is a better idea (thanks E Shaw). 

You gotta like that!!

I've had two of these for 8 years or so and luv em! For me the advantage is to be able to spin the bike around. Once I ride off them, I get off and leave the bike to warm up, then spin the trolley around and pin it, ready for when I get back home. The added bonus is, of course, to store the bikes out of the way. I got them in Moorabbin, just off Warrigal Road, and they cost about $200 each. Bit neglected - probably time for the 8 yearly clean and WD40. I don't know about the other types but they need to be pinned to the floor to stop them moving away when you go onto them, or kicking out when you take off. No big deal just drill a few holes here and there. The only disadvantage (sometimes) is the bike being on a lean (checking oil?) - but being on a lean means there's less chance of them being accidentally knocked over. Just remembered, the only change I made a couple of years ago was to replace the centre backbone square tube. The original one is 2 piece, for ease of shipping, and the join sagged a bit. Otherwise - great !

I picked up the $220 dolly on Friday and put it together. Very handy indeed and holds the RM really solid.
You need to put all your weight behind it to get it rolling, but it maneuvers quite well.

Rob. Apply brakes to wheels and rear and gently rock the bike back and she comes off. Brakes are important otherwise the Dolly will just move with the rocking of the bike.

I use the same wheel cradle for the trailer. Suits dirt bikes, road bikes and the Roadmaster.
Because it doesn't come close to the front guard, I thought others might be interested.

My guess is that Captrainrob's setup only needs to be pinned to the floor because the wheels on the dolly don't have brakes. All the others I've seen have brakes on most of the wheels so riding on and off isn't a problem.
