    I've very occasionally thought the same.

    Getting the bike out of the garage involves a bit of towards/backwards shenanigans until it's facing up the drive.

    I have thought of trying out one of those turntable thingys.

    But then I open the throttle, ride off with a smile and think "yippee" and forget everything else

    The garage is big enough, the cars are on the drive but my drive slopes down but I have to ride past my house then manoeuvre the bike backward up a sloping pavement & down my drive between cars.

    Those turntables are good as long as you can lift the front wheel off the ground by putting your weight on the rear while on the centre stand.

    Has to be flat ground to use a turntable thingy.

    Speaking of manoeuvring heavy bikes around. The mot place I use only uses a house type door to get into the shop. The guy goes to my bike outside the shop. Stands in front facing it grabs the handle bars then effortlessly leans it upright then steers it into the shop to the work station. We (the waiting customers with mugs of tea in hand) all look on in awe

    There used to be a bike shop in Dewsbury that had three steps going up to a side door, I took one of my Superdreams, he said bring it round the side, I was thinking “I hope he helps me up the steps with it,” stood waiting by the steps & after a while he sticks his head out from behind a pillar, there was a double shutter door further down.
