wow a non technical question, i can do this one

cleaning and maintenance,

especially a rear stand which is needed for getting the chain lubed up nice and cleaning/removing the rear wheel

front stand is usefull for removing/cleaning the front wheel as its a pain balancing the exhaust on blocks of wood like i do

those 'handy stands' on sale here somewhere sound pretty good, and my micron rear is ok.

also, it looks good propped up on the drive for the nieghbours to look at.

to those that ask

i use my stand for cleaning the bike, doing oil changes, other maintenance when you need to take fairing off, lubing/cleaning the chain and anything else you can think of
well worth the $$

i have the yello 'suzuki' stand (rear) and was able to 'bump' my bike off on two occassions.....luckily all i suffered was a few scrapes on the outside of the swinger....

i soonthereafter bought the 'pitbull' stand....it has a much more sturdy bas than the yello one, but requires just a little more technique to employ...(like 2 sec.s')
