I like... where are you going to put it? Doesn't look like there's a lot more room in the garage...

You know, I'm trying to figure that out.

Your right. I'm going to try to move the trailer over to the left and see how much space I can gain. Only problem I see right now, the bike does not have a center stand, just leans over on a side stand.

I know I could gain alot of space on the truck side, if I remove my work benchs, but that is not an option I want to take.

Park the silverado in the silverardo. I had a friend that had a ramp and parked his bike in the bed of the truck. Didn't take much time to set up (it was on wheels) or if he wanted to drive the truck instead he'd put both in the garage.

I had one of the dollies from harbor-freight like above, and it worked great. It was too short to fit my current bikes, so I sold it with one of the smaller bikes.
Check measurements before you get one.

Nice Star though!

Looks like I won't be needing that stand after all.

Got it to fit !! *





* = Got to give the credit to my mother. After spending hours trying to figure how I could move the trailer & truck, so It would fit between, she came along and said, "why don't you just put it over there ?" Pointing the the corner on the other side of the trailer !

Don't you hate it when that happens ? lol

Took the new toy out for a short ride tonight. Trying to get used to the bike on some non busy streets close to home.

It's kind of weird how nervous I feel with it. It's been 22 years since I had a large bike. I have a moped that I've put 5000 miles on.

I'd ridden motorcycles from 1980 to 1989, put hundreds of thousand miles on a Honda 650 & Goldwing, was very used to riding back then.

Drove the bikes on 120 mile daily commute to work for years. I even rode cross country trips from Maryland to Arizona and back. And another trip from Maryland to Florida & back.

I feel like I should be more used to riding, but I'll take it slow and easy until I get my "sea legs" back.

Took some shots while I was out.

Nice pics! Just ride every chance you get, wear all your gear and you'll be back up to speed in no time. Old habits die hard.

Don't worry, you'll get used to it again. It's just like riding a bike...

LOL, That made me laugh. I've been trying to get used to it. Shifting is all done by sound, as there is no tach.

I can feel I'm getting a little better, still have a ways to go. The last few days I've taken it out for an hour or so after getting home from work.

Just remember the most dangerous time is when you're starting to feel comfortable and relax. Never be too complacent. Keep your guard up.

I have to wonder if he would have had a helmet on would he have made it. He left a wife and child behind.
RIP

I posted that because I have worked with Bob for a couple of years now. I still think bikes are a great way to get around and a great hobby and hope one day to own one. But it only takes a second for things to get out of control.
Be safe

It's fairly easy. While backing in, I use the mirrors & back up camera.

Leaves 1/2" on the bench side and enough room on the trailer side to slide out the passenger door.
