I know they're better suited for cruisers and such, but I was hoping someone has had positive experience with one.
Yes, I just sold mine for $50 locally. Unless you're ready to remove all your exhaust pipes and do some wood blocking, this probably isn't the route to go.
Actually, Vash had a great jimmy-rig solution for not having the front stand. Put a couple of hooks into the ceiling of the garage on the rafters and use two ratchet straps to lift the bike from the triple tree or other major frame piece.
