Sidestand spin?

With a 1 car garage, the 10 point turn to get my bike turned around is getting a little old. Looked at a couple of the turntable style gizmos, but would rather not have to put it up on centre stand every time, or, more importantly, drop farkle cash on a fancy disc.

I've done it with sport bikes and lighter MX bikes, not sure if its wise to rotate these bikes with all the weight on the stand.

what I'm talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGcldkQmzw0

What say ye?

This would be a good solution. I have one and it makes garage maneuvers very easy.

My neighbor did it to my bike and I originally thought he was dropping it. He did it on blacktop and it left a nice hole in the ground. I wouldn't be spinning mine on the stand, but the video seemed like it's easy enough.

I'll stick to my 10 point turns...but my father has one of the Park N Ride dolly stands. It's nice and moves his K1600, but kind of expensive for what it is at $200+

I too have a skinny crowded garage.
I've been doing the side stand spin for years.
My current ride is a portly Triumph Scrambler and have zero ish doing the spin.
Peace out

So i can build a spinner with those part numbers Reaver?

Fudge - Yeah I looked at those HF trays a couple times store, they look like they would buckle or just stop rolling at one point. I guess since its cheaper than the others I'll give it a go.

The side stand should handle the weight and stress, but that's not saying it will. I've had to replace the pivot bolt twice on my '09, the weak link. I've had to have the side stand shaft re-bent after the loaded bike slid backwards down a hill in neutral while on the side stand (without me on it). Therefore, I'm not real excited about spinning my F800GS.

In my case, its an uphill gravel driveway. Right at the garage door. My wide in the hips Scrambler isn't so much fun pushing never mind backwards up hill.

In my case, its a townhouse garage, right on the corner, backing out on a blind corner with people flying by = close calls.

IF I'm going to get by a car, I'd rather it be while riding, not backing out of my garage....

Took the PSSOR clinic at the recent Altrider Hoh Rally. Brett showed us the side stand spin on a tight uphill. Never thought of using the technique with larger bikes, but was a great way to get out of a bind. I ended up using it on the route home when exploring a trail that died out. The fully loaded 800 spins with little effort in the dirt. I agree with Fred that I would not use it daily in the garage.

This is the one my father in law uses.

If the bike has a center stand, it's a great option.

Damn Pangit, thats fancy stuff there.

thomps000 - does he use it on a f8? I've heard that the configuration of our centre stands, mostly the foot part, interferes with the park n move. I've email those guys but never heard back, figured it was a "no" from the lack of response.

I'm thinking a fancy disco ball with tethers to lift/spin the bike. dual sport bike, why not a dual purpose spinner?

I throw mine on the center stand and spin it around that way, works great on smooth concrete garage floors but not on asphalt or rough surfaces.
