It's a motorcycle "dolly". There are several variations out there. Yes, they work well, the better ones much more so than the cheapos (figures!!).

That's the motorcycle dolly available from Harbor Freight (in the USA, don't know about ex-US). I picked one up for my Honda for $70 using a coupon from one of the motorcycle rags. It works very well with my Honda VTX 1300 Retro, although with such a heavy bike (~700 pounds), it can likely use an upgrade on the wheels. For a less heavy bike, this is a nice way to go. I don't use it with my F4 because I have a MotoMFG paddock stand with wheels for that baby.

I have several of these - the original a rather pricy German brand ($299 US as I recall). All others were the Harbor Freight Chinese copy for less than 1/3 that price - and frankly the Chinese were much better: better wheels, a "brake"/ramp on each end so it doesn't run away as you're loading the bike, and the same adjustable side stand support. The only negative on the Chinese version was the side stand support is a little longer - so for the bike next to my car in the garage (Kawasaki ZRX 1200) I kept the German one as it clears the car tire when I pulled my car in (the Chinese one does not). I just replaced that German one with a MotoMFG stand. Now I'm waiting for MotoMFG to come out with a plate for my 2010 MV Brutale.

I noticed the Ducati MH900e in that photo - I used to have one of those.... a 2002, #1869 of 2000. Beautiful machine. I installed a California Cycle Works 5 gallon fuel tank with battery holder, Staintune slip-ons and a Power Commander plus a bunch of Rizoma and custom machined alloy bits. It was a sweet running machine - but what a torture rack to ride. And the mirrors were even more useless than the ones on an MV (but, they did not self-destruct).

All the car and motorcycle magazines have one or two pages of coupons for Harbor Freight. Look in Motor Trend, Car and Driver, Rider, Motorcyclist, etc. The bike mags have some coupons advertising bike related deals. I found one with the dolly discounted to about $70 or $80, I can't remember the price right now. There is also a coupon on the page for 20% off one item and something for free such as a set of screwdrivers, tape measure or flashlight.
