Garage floor protection

Hi All,

I'm looking for some tips or pointers on what to put under the motorcycles. I have a painted concrete garage floor that I'd like to chipless.
For the last few years,
I've just used a piece of wood, maybe around 10mm thick and 50x120cm (or thereabouts) which was placed where two of the bikes have their center stands.

But that thing is too short, it's super tight to get two boxer bikes (GSA and R) on the board as I can't put them super close together due to the cylinders sticking out ...

Now, what do you use? Any good recommendations? Carpet? Floor mat? Wood? Other?

Horse mats or the rubber mats used in gyms ( same stuff different name )
They come in various sizes , or interlocking tile format.
It’s super dense rubber , only 1/2” thick but real heavy .

You can get it just about anywhere , but look online if someone is getting rid of the home gym , or a gym going out of business you can get it for a song .
Don’t let the 1/2” thickness fool you , it’s seriously heavy duty stuff .
If you get it new , you’ll have the rubber tire smell for a couple days & it’ll go away
Go to a gym and check it out , 1000lbs of weight on it & doesn’t dent .
