K1600 Bike stand

I am looking for one of those stands that you put the bike on and you can roll the bike in any position. What do you guys own or use or recommend?


Thanks

Wish I had some back-lit LED lights on my control handle

A while ago i got the Wunderlich version from nippy normans.


https://www.nippynormans.com/wunderl...-large-version



It was very well made and the quality was second to none, but, as the K1600 is not a lightweight and after positioning it over the mover and putting on its centre stand, its one way to keep fit!!


The next problem I found was as the K16 is front heavy it was like trying to move it with its brakes on if you were trying to do anything other then move it backwards and forwards.


Needless to say I sold it on.


I have seen the type that both wheels go on and which has a sideplate so that it sits on its side stand, but i haven't tried one of those but that may help with the front end weight issue I had.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaim: "Wow, what a ride".

I have a Harbor Freight motorcycle dolly that I picked up on Craig's List for $40. Works fine.

That looks a good bit of kit. Doesn't look to be available in the UK though.

It's an old thread but my two cents...
