Motorcycle Wheel Cleaning Stand

So, I was wandering through my local Harbor Freight (we are doing a lighted boat parade on our lake this weekend, and the pontoon needed some "accessories"), and I found this motorcycle ramp on one of the isles. Looked sorta damn handy and me thinking when I was scrubbing my front wheel, I had to roll the bike backward in my garage.....now I guess that is a way to save $20 but this looked sorta handy, and I can hang it up flat on my garage wall outa the way.

So the big question is.....do any of you have one of these and what do you think? Yes, there are 70+ reviews on site, but sometimes I like to hear from "direct family" and I have never heard anyone hold back on product reviews here on GWD.

I have one but really haven't used it for cleaning wheels just to lube chains on my other bikes but see that it could work for this.

I have one but found it difficult to use while the bike is on the side stand. Very difficult to line it up just right to make it work while on the center stand. It appears to be a good idea but when using it with a heavy Gold Wing it turns out to be not so good.

I've seen them and thought about buying one. Had a chance to get one free at one point but turned that down too.

I realized that I always park the bike in the garage on the center stand. When I need to rotate the front wheel, I simply lift on the wheel and rotate it.
