Rear stand...

Ya know what... I don't own a rear stand for my bikey. I don't know why I haven't bought one yet. Just thought about it.

Anyone have a suggestion for one? I wouldn't use it a whole lot, just for chain service or tire removal. So something cheaper is just fine by me.

Thanks for the input.

I prefer Pit-Bull stands. Others have had good luck with the less expensive stands from Handy Industries.

When I started reading that, I thought you were going to say you MADE a rear stand out of 2 shovels a broom etc.

If you think your garage is a mess, you should come see mine.

Awesome deal... thanks guys.


I'd like to see that garage, how do you fit all that in there. I picture a grill stacked on a snowblower.

how did you work on your bike without a rear stand? When I didn't have one I had to borrow one but I had to go get my own ages ago.

Go get one!

Riding is not what I do....it's who I am!

And... back to the actual question - I would go with Pit Bulls anytime. I just love the worksmanship on them. Wish they made them in black!

I would hang the bike from the trusses in the garage.

But in my new house it's all drywalled and painted up. I beat you dadogs. 4 months? Seriously? I did mine in 3 days and I suck at that stuff.

Dude I barely have time to breath let alone rock the garage.....30 x 40 and had to drop 3 openers and 10 8 ft flourescent lights just to do the ceiling which sucked.....Just an hour or 2 each w/e is all I've been doing. Hopefully be painting as soon as I heal from the ball operation

That's a pretty close guess...
The SOB "had" to borrow his brother's 1000RR to ride over to my place last Saturday due to the RC being unaccessible.

Those Handy stands are easily worth more than the $100. I figure there's not a huge need to go extravagant with the stands if cost is a factor. Particularly since you've been getting by just fine without.

I've got two sets of the standard Handy stands, the ones that go into the holes in the bottom of the forks. Work great. I need to get another set, the kind that goes into the steering stem hole.

Sorry, I'm gonna hang onto them. I posted somewhere else that my dad had problems with tires from letting them set on the sidestand too long, and the friggin' winter in Kentucky can be too long.

Don't tell me about winter southern boy, I'm from Wisconsin... I'm an eskimo compared to the warm gusts you get in the winter.

A buddy of mine bought the Handy stands and loves them. I sprung for Pit Bull because they seem more sturdy. Great construction also. If you only need them every now and then, go with the Handy Stands.

Thats the new 600RR +½ I've been reading about...

Looks like you need a house like JB's. Can hold like 50 bikes in the bottom of that thing.

Anyone can plainly see that what is under the cover is an '87 to '93 Mustang LX Coupe (trunk).
