Over the last year, I have been working to reduce the amount of stuff I have. One of the ways I do that is to look at things I have not been using. This sounds easy, but seems hard for some reason. It feels easy to ignore things. The old “out of sight out of mind” line seems appropriate. I have five bikes in the garage and now two cars. Moving vehicles around can be a bit tricky!
The motorcycle high jack shown below is one of those things I bought and thought I would get a lot of use out of. I’ve had it for a couple years now, and I think I only managed to use it twice. I’ve been moving it out of the way for entirely too long now, so it was time to get rid of it.
While talking with my friend Paul, he told me about some motorcycle dollies he just bought from harbor freight that didn’t work in his workshop. I proposed a trade and he agreed: he got my lift and I got two of the dollies. I’ve been wanting one of these since I saw one in use at Troubadour’s house.
I put one under the WR250R right away and it was much easier to get it moved around the garage. It also let me put two bikes very close together. Why didn’t I buy one of these sooner? I need to assemble the other one then I can put it into use right away. I’m very happy with the trade. We both got something useful. Thanks!
