Wheel Chalk for Garage

Does anyone use a wheel chalk for their garage? I've seen one at the dealership, it was a Harley logo. Just curious if it would be good to park the bike daily using one. I like my garage organized and for some reason it sort of annoys me when it's parked in the garage on the kick stand.

Nope; too many other things annoy me way more. Just park it on the jiffy stand.

Once I make up my mind, I'm full of indecision.

i use a condor for doing maintenance, not usually for daily parking. not saying that you couldn't or shouldn't, but for me, its a little difficult to get the bike out of it with my short legs. its usually easier to just get the wife to give me a push

harley is similar to condor, and hf makes one that is similar as well, though just not quite as sturdy.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

I use a Condor for my daily parking in my garage. It is so much easier to work on a bike that standing straight up.

I found that there is a secret to easily getting the bike out of the chock. You simply need to make sure that the front tire is perfectly lined up with the chock.

I know it sounds stupid, but it is 100% true!

Overtime pays more because of what you're missing, money isn't everything.

I have a Condor. A little more expensive but worth it. I also have an easy up stand for when I'm on the road. I find the bike easier to load/unload and I always fuel the bike while on the center stand.

I use the condor to work on other people's bikes during the winter. It works great and makes it a lot easier to work on both sides of the bike. It also helps with storage, an upright bike takes less room in the shop.

Have a condor copy HF chock bolted to the HF table lift that the bike is parked on right now. If you want to use the chock for daily use, I'd attach it to the floor or a large sheet of 3/4 OSB just to keep it from sliding around when loading/unloading the bike in it. Trick to getting the bike out is to have the chock adjusted for the size tire you are running. Don't want the tire touching the bottom when setting in the chock, but just enough weight to keep it from rolling out on its own. When floor space is a problem, I like the bike to be setting straight up, too.
