I have the Risk racing stand. Works awesome especially in the small 118 cargo bay so you don't have tie downs taking up valuable space.

I can fit two bikes in easily this way. Three probably possible if one is turned around.

Nice setup. I bought the 118 but haven't picked it up yet. I've never seen an 06 that still looked new inside and out. I paid a premium but I think it's worth it in the long run.

Awesome! I paid dearly for mine too, but well worth it to get a low miles, rust free example.

Yea, I had an 04 140 SHC before that was a company van. It was used for delivering dry cleaning so it never had any weight in it but the rear and drivers door was abused. All the doors close like a new truck. The only issue in the interior is one of the vents on the driver side is missing a tooth. Has PW,PL and cruise that I didn't have on my 04.

Thread resurrection.

We bought a 118” mostly for bikes: after using a trailer for a year I missed the security and weather protection. We have dirt bikes, touring bikes, and a track-day bike (GSX-R750).

Still working on mine but this was after first weekend. We use a Condor Pit Stop most often: also have two Pit Bull stands. Still figuring out where to locate everything before attaching them. Also we may well mount an L track rail down the center.

Tying the [folding] ramps on each side worked well. Next session is in August and we may have two bikes.



This is what I don’t really like right now. The right side tie downs are fine, but we have to go all the way across for the left side. They get in the way.

hauling my harley across country for various bike weeks, my 170wb high roof seemed just barely large enough. that's about 4' less length. yikes.

even my 148"wb medium roof transit is a tight squeeze compared to the Sprinter.

If it's not a track bike, you should be riding it. Motorcycles are about riding, not posing.

Removable front wheel chock. Dirtbike, 2 seats, table and kitchen. Still loads of room for gear.
