They also have a 1200 lb lift that is similar to the Handy pro lifts and it is 479 - the 20% makes it about 384, thats a good deal and U can get a decent wheel chock for about 40 if U want

Exactly, they just seem much more stable, dropping a bike from ground level is bad dropping one from 3ft high really sux

I've had one for a year now. I love it. Sure beats crawling around on the floor and getting up with a back ache. Makes working on the bike twice as easy.

Don't worry, scrot. There are plenty of 'tards out there living really kick- lives.

My dad picked one up for $200 from harbor frieght, cause it was a demo or something, a few months back. Best $200 ever spent. Watch out though. Make sure you ALWAYS use the saftey bar it comes with and never leave it lifted with just the hydraulic pump. Lift it, place in the bar, drop it till it rests on the bar. He came back to it after it sitting up on just the pump for a few days and lost pressure. After that he went ahead and replaced the oil in the pump and it works better that when it was new. just a heads up.

He nailed the take-off, but when he landed, something terrible happened. His front tire exploded like a cannonball, and his handle bars went straight through his head. Blood was everywhere. His teeth were ground down to a powder, and the front of his face exploded out the back of his skull. He died instantly... the next day.

I will eventually get one of these. I am tired of laying on my back and side to reach parts.

There was a kid at a bike shop preparing to work on a brand new customer's Busa (customer had not yet taken it home and wanted some parts installed), and dropped it from the motorcycle lift.

Can you imagine explaining that to the customer?

I went and paid for mine yesterday, I opted for the top of the line 1200lb air operated one, very similar to the professional Handy brand, took my 20% off coupon (thanks for the heads up) and they offered the 2 year exchange warranty, was just over 5 bills otd, should be here in 2 weeks, warranty was $80 but it covers everything, just exchange if anything happens, it is HF after all

Congrats on the purchase.

I would still like to get one, but will have to see how much time I have in the future for such things.

Take some pics when you get it home and set-up with the GSXR1000 on it.
