Condor Motorcycle Garage Dolly Review | A Moving Experience
I have a three-car garage that I have somehow managed to fill with bikes, from massive full dressers to kids dirt bikes. You name it, it’s in there.Moving any of these bikes around to gain more space can be a challenge at best, but not with a Condor Motorcycle Garage Dolly. The idea is to roll or ride the bike onto the Garage Dolly, and then simply roll the Dolly around or swivel it in any direction with no fuss at all.The entire Condor Motorcycle Garage Dolly kit arrived in two boxes, with easy to follow instructions. The Garage Dolly is adjustable for length, so whether you need it for a short wheelbase MX bike or a stretched out bagger, the Condor has it covered.The well-designed wheel chock has an adjustable cradle for a variety of wheel diameters. It allows almost any size wheel and tire to lock into position without worry. Within 20 minutes, I had tried most of the bikes in my garage for fit.With the bike in place, you have the option of securing it with tie-downs at the front and rear using the provided hookups, or just using a Velcro strap to wrap around the front wheel. The wheel chock works so well that I’ve yet to feel the need for additional security.I was able to push a Honda Gold Wing right to the corner to make space for even more bikes with no problem. When I had to move the Harley to the front of the garage, to make room for the car, the Condor Motorcycle Garage Dolly handled it. It makes moving massive machines around a cramped area a breeze.The Garage Dolly’s heavy duty aluminum is welded for industrial strength, and the wheel carrier braces are capable of holding a lot more weight than almost any motorcycle in existence—up to 1200 pounds. The castor wheels are rubber rimmed for easy movement across all surfaces, while the bearing pivots allow smooth swivel action in tight areas.For those concerned about the country of manufacture, not only is the Garage Dolly designed in the United States, it is also manufactured in the USA. According to Condor, this policy extends to the rest of the products it offers. The Garage Dolly sells for $444, plus shipping, and is sold directly from the Condor website.I had no idea that I would use the Condor Motorcycle Garage Dolly as much as I do. The only problem— only have the one Garage Dolly and way too many bikes.
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly Podcast—Motos and Friends.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
This week’s Podcast is brought to you by Yamaha motorcycles. Discover how the YZF-R7 provides the perfect balance of rider comfort and true supersport performance by checking it out at YamahaMotorsports.com, or see it for yourself at your local dealer.
This week’s episode features Senior Editor Nic de Sena’s impressions of the beautiful new Harley-Davidson Low Rider ST that is loosely based around the original FXRT Sport Glide from the 1980s. Hailing from The Golden State, these cult-status performance machines became known as West Coast style, with sportier suspension, increased horsepower, and niceties including creature comforts such as a tidy fairing and sporty luggage.
In past episodes you might have heard us mention my best friend, Daniel Schoenewald, and in the second segment I chat with him about some of the really special machines in his 170 or so—and growing—motorcycle collection. He’s always said to me that he doesn’t consider himself the owner, merely the curator of the motorcycles for the next generation.
Yet Daniel is not just a collector, but I can attest a really skilled rider. His bikes are not trailer queens, they’re ridden, and they’re ridden pretty hard. Actually, we have had many, many memorable rides on pretty much all of the machines in the collection at one time or another.
From all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
