It’s so simple and functional that we’re kicking ourselves for not inventing it first. The Wheel Jockey is a small set of rollers that fits under a motorcycle’s rear tire, allowing easy chain lubing and wheel cleaning and inspection.
The $54 U.S. device is fitted with two rollers that ride on ball bearings, and a non-skid backing plate. It’s small — 4 by 4.5 inches — and is intended only for bikes with street tread; knobbies will confuse the rollers.
To use it, just follow the pdf instructions (or put bike on sidestand, place Wheel Jockey just in front of rear wheel, pick up bike and roll onto Wheel Jockey, check for stability, then get down and roll that wheel by hand). Oh yeah, and be sure your engine is turned off. This is a manual procedure.
The Wheel Jockey can hold a bike up to 750 lb. in weight, but we’re guessing that you could buy four of them, turn them upside down, and use them to move really heavy furniture in a straight line. Or not.
