Just fill up the void with concrete when you leave.

Not a landlord, are you?  Haha

You could build a wooden platform on both sides level with the lift when it is in the down position. I have the 1500lb Titan that has the removable side extensions so I can get off and even put the jiffy stand down if I need.

I was making reference to "reasonable" landlords, a small group for sure.

I have a Handy Lift with side extensions. I didn't like trying to ride up on the lift so I made a 4ft. extension out of plywood & 2x4's. I use the small Handy ramp (the width of the lift) added to the wooden extension & I have no problems riding up on it now. I drilled holes in the Handy ramp & the wooden ramp & I pin them both so it won't kick out. Once the bike is on the lift I pull the 2 carriage bolts & remove the ramps. Yes the plywood ramp takes up a little room in the garage but is well worth it. I ride all my bikes up on it & never worry about driving up on the lift. The CVO Ultra is one heavy bike that now I don't worry about putting it up on the lift.

I’d loved to see a couple pics of you’ve got them.

Oh I see. I was thinking you did something on the sides. I like it. Very handy

With the side extensions I don't need any extra width on the sides. I can ride up CVO Ultra & get the wheel into the wheel vise & then get off (bike on side stand) & tighten up the wheel vise. Easy peasy & no worries!

So the extra wood ramp is just helping with the angle to ride (or push) up?

That's exactly correct. It makes it easy to ride the bike on the lift.

I did something very similar to what you did. I found the angle of the ramp was too steep. I have the side extensions too. I placed safety tape on the lift due to the slickness of the surface.
