Updated review on my 2 dollies!
As you can tell from my previous review below, I like the dolly. So much so I bought another one for my son's VFR. I was surprised to see that his was painted a bright yellow (nice) and had different caster/wheels on it than mine from 3 years ago. My original (?) dolly has the dual wheel with the dark grey colour stand. It moves around fine. However I decided to put my Goldwing on the new one with a single wheel (as shown in yellow/photo) and WOW...it is even easier to roll around! It's like the dolly has power steering now!
As usual, be very careful to have an absolutely clean floor when moving it around. And when you want to change directions (i.e. from moving the bike sideways to going backwards), gently push it so it allows the wheels on the dolly to realign otherwise your bike CAN go flying off the dolly...not fun!
Always keep your sidestand down for precaution and if you find it moves when putting the bike on the dolly, use a wedge like I do sometimes. I also ensure to put the bike up on the dolly using my heavy duty riding boots as it helps to reduce the pressure point of the centre stand tab where you press down. I can't lift my bike up with my running shoes on for instance.
With the amount of weight (900+ lbs) on it on two very small points of contact, I am extremely pleased to see absolutely no deflection/bending of the platform whatsoever. A bit more effort of course to get the bike on the dolly but there's no way I could store 2 bikes in my tiny garage with 2 cars without these versatile and well built dollys (dollies?). And remember: MADE IN THE USA.
