moving the bike in the garage
 
space is real tight in my garage
I vaguely remember seeing a pick of some kind of wheeled thing under a centerstand.
Anyone everhear of that?
Would like to move the bike without taking it down off the stand.

Park n Move
 
I received one of these a couple of years ago as a Christmas gift. Nice liitle cart - works as advertised. I can pivot the bike on the stand and spin it 360 and just move it anywhere.

EDIT: Looks like my pic got nuked - it was a stock pic from the web, must have been a no-no.

Here's the link to the mfg: http://www.legalspeeding.com/Park-n-Move.htm

they have a couple of videos on there that do a good job of showing you how it works.

don't know if you are "one cheap son of a bitch"-sounds like you might be.
When I work on the bikes, I pull a car out of the garage to make room.
When I "stare", I just look around the car, and their they are.

If I needed to reorient the bike in a tight space I've always been able to just pivot the bike on the sidestand and swivel it around. Granted, this is with sub-500lb sportbikes. Not sure how well a cruiser or full on touring bike would work with this method.

Tip: Have a spare sidestand and mount on hand if you do this with any frequency to a big duallie or cruiser.

Don't try this on the centerstand of a BMW - the stand mounts directly to the engine and cracked cases have been reported by folks doing this.

I use a piece of 16x26" 22 ga galvanized sheet metal under the center stand to spin the bike while on it's center stand. That works fine, but I would not try to slide the bike on galvanized sheet while on the center stand. The park-n-move looks very interesting.

If you are a little handy, you can make one yourself. If not, harbour-freight and so many more have all kinds of different devices you can purchase. I made my own rolling lift-table. Its on a lift-table that I can push out of the way if I need to.

On K bikes that have the CS mounted on the trans you can push down on the rear of the bike and pivot it on the CS. Done it MANY times.

I've used the side stand to pivot the bike on.
