Smile EZ - Motorcycle turnaround in Garage

I made the turnaround in the attached link. It works great with the LT. I had a 18" X 18" 10 gauge steal plate plug welded to the $13.00 12" lazy susan from Ace hardware. The welding cost $30.00.

The turnaround is awesome. I pull over it in the garage, lower the centerstand on top and while still on the bike(tippy-toe) I spin around 180 degrees to head back out of the garage.

The Ace hardware 12" lazy susan has a 1000 pound weight capacity! No fears bike is very stable. The device saves me time and allows me less frustartion in going for a quick ride.

Cool

the surface should something non slip for even more confidence. metal plate sounds risky. my kid has sandpaper type tape he calls grip tape on his skateboard.

how, by the way, can you centerstand that beast while still on the bike? I've never tried that.

I'd guess '05 or '06 w/auto centerstand.
