Default Wheel chock?

I am looking for a way to store my bike in the garage standing up straight. My garage is just barely big enough for our car and truck and leaning on the kick stand makes parking pretty challenging. I have some scrap wood enough to build something but cant seem to find any sort of plans. Ideas?

Looks like a steel frame bike. I built one for my Kawi. Two 2x6 and galvanized pipe. Custom handle!

I use this one from Amazon on my table lift. Works great there. I only use the tie straps as a safety back up. Might need some rubber pads for a garage floor so it doesn't slip.

I use one of these motorcycle scissor jacks that are available anywhere.
I took off the black stands and put a piece of thin plywood on top so as to not have metal on metal.
Been using it on my 2014 XCT for 2 winters now to save space in my garage.

Like broggyr, I bought a WheelDock. Bought it about a year ago, and use it all the time, i.e., not just for maintenance or over the winter. If you're interested, I wrote a review of it for webBikeWorld: Wheeldock Review - webBikeWorld

Since those first few days, I ride into the chock every time I park the bike in the garage, i.e., I don't push it in, the way that I show in the video in that review. It would be a tiny bit easier just to put the bike on the sidestand when I'm done for the day, but I've gotten used to the space-savings, all the time, in the garage, with the bike straight up.

OTOH, if you want to make something, and you have a steel-frame bike (right?), tang56's version of what some commercial outfits sell looks like a potential solution (but don't trip over the handle on the floor).

Cheers,

Bill P.

I've been trying to figure out how to raise my wheels for maintenance. That should work great. Thanks!
