I use this one Black Pro Range Motorcycle Motorbike Front Head Stock Paddock Stand Ghostbikes | eBay Fits ok but these stands always sit close to the fender so I put an old (stolen from the airing cupboard) towel over the fender to avoid scratches.
>:D Airing cupboard : -) now that is a blast from the past. It wasn't next to the parlor and across from the scullery was it? or maybe just next to the lobby, all viable options :D Just teasing though I did smile at the olde English. Ah the good old days.


Oxford front wheel chock stand. Decent quality and well made. Not every one is a fan of these but I prefer it to the other paddock stand style, which I have for the rear. no raiding of airing cupboards requied,

Abba stand with front raising kit. Sorry about the Kwak, no pics available with our bikes.

I love my pitbull, but its problem is you cant remove the triple clamps while its in place. That would be nice as I like to keep my steering head bearings clean and nice.

The abba might be expensive, but it covers both front and back use. I wish I had one.

ABBA had an extensive stall set out Motorcycle Live today, prices weren't as competitive as I was expecting though.
