The Condor Motorcycle Garage Dolly Review
A must have for motorcyclists
If you would like to be able to gain space while storing your motorcycle in your garage, being able to move it about easily, conveniently and safely with no hassle and without struggling, the folks at Condor have just the solution – their new Condor Garage Dolly.
The Garage Dolly makes it a breeze to place your bike in a space saving upright position anywhere in your garage or storage facility. It features a patented cradle that’s adjustable to accommodate virtually any motorcycle regardless of size, weight or type, from dirt and sport bikes to massive, heavy touring baggers.
Simply ride or push your motorcycle forward onto the light weight yet sturdy aluminum Condor Garage Dolly until it locks into the built-in wheel chock, where a Velcro and buckle strap secures the bike’s front wheel. The Dolly has four large brake stops to secure it for safe loading and unloading. It rolls effortlessly on large 4-inch wheels, allowing it to be swiveled or rolled to any tight spot, even over large cracks and pitted floors. The Dolly is load rated for up to 1,300 pounds and can be easily folded for out of the way storage when not in use.
The Garage Dolly is made in America by Condor and retails for $444.00.
There are accessories available to accommodate “Adventure Bikes” with tall seat heights, where straddling the bike can be challenging to remove from the chock on the Dolly, or to even dismount gracefully and safely once the bike is on the dolly.
The solution? Height Assist Footrests – powder coated steel brackets that easily bolt to the sides of the unit, providing the user a place to plant their feet when getting on and off the bike for added leverage. The footrests in essence lower the bike’s seat height by more than two-inches for easier operation and the sell for $74.95 plus shipping.
There are also Garage Dolly Extensions for extra-long wheelbase motorcycles with stretched front ends. The extension bolts onto the end of the main frame, adding another 18-inches to the Dolly, making it a full 108-inches in length. The extension comes with another set of 4-inch wheels to the bracket for the extension, allowing it to roll as easily as the base extension and it sells for $39.00 plus shipping.
For custom bikes with low-slung “Hugger” fenders, there’s Chopper Chuck Cradle for the Dolly to accommodate 90mm, 120mm, 130mm, 140mm and 150mm tire sizes that protects the rear fender. The custom Cradle runs $69.00 plus shipping.
