The Ducati bit is 5 minutes in and no, I didn't get any further than that... :)

Paste the link again, Brian - it's all gone very wrong, and I come over all funny when faced with DIY videos. I may have to sue for PTSD.

What?! 51 minutes of advertising?
Are you absolutely positive you have the correct link?

If so, please state the minute to start watching from, since I only have another 24 * 365 * 20 lots of 51 minutes to live.

5:03 to 5:51. It's a pair of paddock stands with goofy wheels so you can push the bike around like it's on swivel castors. They say it's for Ducati, then show it being used with a KTM.

Oh, I like that. 

I wonder a bit about how well it would cope with my cast concrete floor, but seems to move over a joint pretty well in the video.  I can only think that the Ducati reference is to do with single sided swing arm, but the very first shot looks like a GS, and then there is a slightly different stand for the KTM with double sided swingarm.  I reckon with a few of those, I can fit a couple more bikes in my garage, which has to be a good (if expensive) thing.   :thumbsup:

I 'think' I said it was 5 mins in. In fact I know I said it is 5 mins in. And if you watched the rest of it then more fool you  ::)

And the bit I just love is the ability to spin the bike around on its axis. I know there are other turntable type solutions but this one seems so neat. I think I need to buy a Ducati...

5 mins it is, Brian. My lack of reading skills. 15-love.

Ah, but here's how to save pain - with an exact link to the correct spot:
https://youtu.be/VNrWVbOCI6M?t=318
15-all.

I love the talkover
with edit chops when
something else gets said but
then there's
a gap whilst the non-AI-but-seriously-stilted
audio catches up with the
images on the screen.

How long before the little wheels clog up with fluff'n'gunge from your grubby floor?

But then again, they might not. And what you saying about my floor?

Mine is a light screed of gravel dust, splinters, fluff, leaves from last year, things chewed by a mouse, and concrete chips from a gazillion uses of the centre stand in the same spot for the past 28 years.
Those indoor wheels wouldn't survive 10 minutes. You're going to need a shiny painted floor that is hoovered once a week.
Which is, quite possibly, what normal sensible owners have.  :(

So many American videos like this sound like they've been narrated by an AI from ten years ago.

But anyway, with a lathe and a 3d printer and has anyone got a welding iron? We can make one.

An AI that is.

But, amazingly, it wasn't a Chinese voice and no I did not mean a China voice...

And I have the floor covered with plastic tiles which have that grippy alumin(i)um plate like criss-cross pattern and that is hell to roll things over. I could use my belt sander to melt all the protrusions off of course.
