Surveys show that one of the major reasons buyers back away from a motorcycle purchase is that theyd have to park one of their cars outside to leave space for the bike. If youre facing that dilemma, consider installing a motorcycle storage lift. Itll lift your bike, four-wheeler or riding mower high enough to fit your car underneath it. The Store-It system from Garage Evolution uses an electric motor and stainless steel cables to lift a bike (up to 1,200 lbs.) on a 4 x 8-ft. platform. The 7-amp, 110- volt motor plugs into an ordinary receptacle, so you wont have to call an electrician for special wiring. The motor senses the load and wont operate if you exceed the maximum lifting weight. You can install it yourself in about two hours with hand tools and a drill. During biking season, either load the platform with your snow toys or fold it up against the wall. For more information and to locate a dealer, visit garageevolution.net.
