With the new wheels (4) in the garage I need to find innovative ways of getting my bike/scoot out without having to move the cars in and out.

One German and three Italians in the garage!!!

Which motorcycle dolly do you use? Please share your experience? I am looking at the 4 below:

Park-n-Move motorcycle dolly
Haul-Master Motorcycle Dolly
Acebikes Bike-a-side motorcycle mover
Turn-a-Bike Saddle Center-stand Dolly

I found the solution for my motorcycle and the scooter.
Most motorcycle dollies won't work on a scooter because the centre stand is located too close to the rear wheels and scooters have a rear weight bias.
I found a Canadian guy that makes scooter dollies. $200 Canadian

These dollies have Side Rails to make sure that the scooter will NOT slide off the edge when moving sideways. There is a rubber pad on the platform to reduce movement. They use wide tread casters to make the dolly roll easy. 2 of the Casters have locks on the wheels. The scooter dollies have a Baked-On Powder Coat finish for durability.

They have been designed to handle up to 1200 lbs.

I gained about 2 feet of extra space as I was able to move the scooter and motorcycle closer to the wall. Before the dolly the bike sat on the orange line.

I've been using a dolly similar to these for several years for my BMW, and now my BV and Suzuki V-Strom. Really helps maximizing your garage space.

usually I also do but in winter I meed to maximize garage space if I want to keep both cars and the vespa in the garage and while I can it without the dolly I think the dolly would make it much easier and also give me easier access to the vespa in case of an unusually nice day that I can take advantage of to go for a ride, it happens, not a lot, but it does happen

I just ordered one of these from the Canadian to be delivered here near Milwaukee, WI $250 total. It should be here next Thursday. It ought to be very useful in maneuvering my Piaggio 350 around my small garage. We are still in the deep freeze here though so I may not use it for a little while

I just ordered this one off EBay

http://www.legalspeeding.com/Park-n-Move.htm#.VNzdgSk-DOU

It was $223.23 delivered to SoCal.

I have three PTWs in the garage, hopefully will help move the Tiger and airhead around.
