Actually, ALL of the stands are designed so you can put the bike up by yourself. :rolleyes
Some are easier than others, but that's the difference between cheap and expensive. And you gotta know how to do it, but they are designed to be a one man job.
That being said, Pit Bull stands are the best. The "reverse" type one, where the handle is toward the front does make it a little easier if you're the type of person who wants to stand NEXT to the bike while putting it up.

I'm using a DMP S-Spec Rear Race Stand with spools on my 06 750. It's a nice stand, not too expensive, and gets the job done.

I've tried a couple times to do this by myself but I always get nervous I'm gonna drop the damn thing so I usually get someone to get me a hand. I've also heard the pitbull stand with the handle in the front should make this easier, but i've never seen one in person.

I use the same DMP stand and put it up by myself. Try removing the rear cowl (or passenger seat) and hold the bike from the the frame inside the opening. You can wrap your fingers around the frame and get a good grip. Use your other arm to line up with the spools and then you can raise the bike up by stepping on the stand. Very stable.

I actually done know what brand my stands are...I ended up getting them through a group buy acouple of years ago whenever i had my older R6. The only problem i have with them is, 1) the rear stand isjust a standard set-up and i want the spool set-up and 2) the front is a fork-lift stand as where i want a front stand that lifts up from underneath the triple.
All in all though, i've used them for years with no problems and they only cost me alittle over $100 for the both of them.
