Motorcycle work lift

I was just curious to know if any of you guys and girls use the motorcyle lifts/work tables like the shops use. I'm thinking of buying one and would lke some feed back. Some of the ones I looked at are a little pricey. I'm into this sport/hobby for the long haul, so I think buying tools like this are worth it. I have a tire changing setup, chain tools, common metric tools, Pit Bull stands, and a torque wrench. With all these tools I can do pretty much everything I need to. Feed back welcome.

We have the Handy Air Lifts at work (4 of them) and they work pretty sweet.
