    i'm batman

    fellow one-car garage enthusiasts,

    holy-why-didn't-i-do-this sooner!

    i have a small garage, and a narrow driveway that is a little sloped. whenever i return for a ride, i have to move the outermost car so that i can do a 17-point turn in the driveway and then back my bike down next to the bus and into the garage. a big hassle. im also totally convinced that i will drop my bike while doing this, in full view of my neighbors and my SO and my cat and everyone else. so i had this idea for a little turntable in the garage that i could put the bike on, and just spin the thing around. this would allow me to just roll into the garage like Mr. Cool, spin the bike, and when i want to go out, im pointed in the right direction. so this afternoon i put my plan into action.

    one ~$10.00 lazy susan bearing. (rated to 1,000 lbs)
    one free piece of scrap metal from a shop here in town

    done and done. check it out...

    Hmmm, can I make an offer on Godzilla only, since I don't need the rest of the bus?

    And you may have the BatCave, but I've got THE BATBIKE!
