same here fredcrn, that is a good description on the sears lift. If you plan on getting a ramp type lift, like a handy or equiv, it not hard either. First you have to make sure the wheel chock is open the right amount. Then position the bike back like 5-6 feet from the lift. While giving a good push up the ramp and onto the lift, once you get the front wheel in the chock, support the bike with right hand and tighten the chock with the left. Once the chock is tight, i like to put a frame jack under them for more support. Then finally you MAKE SURE you put a tie down in each corner of the lift to the handle bars/trees. You can never be too safe imoi. SOunds hard but you could do it in less than a minute when you have done it a couple times.
