Bob Has a New Toy

Bob’s new toy is shiny; it is bright red. We needed to borrow a truck to pick it up in Erie. Bob’s new toy was packed in a crate and weighed 350 pounds. It was loaded into the truck bed by a forklift. When we got Bob’s new toy home, it took Bob and our neighbor, Scott, to lift it off the truck onto the garage floor. Bob’s new toy is going to occupy a piece of our garage. The new toy has wheels and can be raised up and down. Have I raised your curiosity enough to wonder what is Bob’s new toy?

Bob’s new toy!

Bob’s new toy is a motorcycle lift.

 

Bob can now perform routine maintenance, such as oil changes and removal of tires, without lying down on the ground.

Thank you, Rick, for the loan of your truck. Thank you, Scott, for helping Bob unload the lift from the truck!

    @ Betsy: She still comes in first. I probably wouldn't even have the lift, because she's smarter than me when it comes to budget. I have to admit I did find a sweet deal, though. (On both her AND the lift)

    That's pretty good, Linda. I've always had to change the oil and filter while laying on the garage floor. Much easier to do it with that lift. I'm sure that it will work well for Bob. Shining all the chrome will work better, also.Keep the rubber side down, and the shiney side up! Ride safe.Les

    Way to go, that should make maintenance much easier. I'm glad he saw the deer you referred to in your comment on my blog and didn't get injured or damage his motorcycle.

    I bet Bob is one happy boy with that…tools make all the difference in doing things. I guess you would call that a tool.
