The V-Rod doesn't fit on my dolly so my other bikes go on it. V-Rod just stays by the garage door as it's what I ride the most.

Condor!

This was something that actually was quite a problem for my wife and I as we've got 4 bikes and a car in a two car garage. We went for one of these: Condor Motorcycle Dolly and absolutely love it! Very well built and moves with one finger provided you're on smooth and level ground.

They aren't cheap but neither are our mirrors or any other spare parts that get created from a simple slip.

To keep half the garage open for the wife's car, I have a fixed turntable I built and a second, mobile one that uses two HF car dollies with spring-mounted ramps. The fixed one is the subject of a crappy video I posted to youtube:
This has additional landing pads for my beloved but now broken R1150RT Police Special and another set when I wandered back to the Honda ST1300. Now it carries my Glide, and the Rod is on the freewheeling dolly, that I will try to post photo of later.

Any photos or video of the mobile one made with the car dollies? I was thinking about making something like that.
