why am i doubting this??

yea now my lifting stand thingy is even more useful because even though i have a kickstand i still like to store it on the stand and without it the KTM has no where to hold onto it. and my FMF stand still works fine.
Even tho you ride a pumpkin ;) you seem pretty smart seeing through that :blah:

Maybe you could take lessons from Scott Summers. Sure his XR600 was quite a bit heavier than the average bike of today but that should....uh make it easier. :)

Anyone seen Stefan Everts get his bike up?

Rides up to it, unweights one peg - front brake endo to the point the frame is higher than the box, then drops the bike onto the top platform as he steps off.... very graceful!! and no weightlifting.

Mind you.... he's not human so you have to take that into consideration :)

I like how RC handles it..

He would get off the bike, walk over to the podium and do interviews while Goose put his bike on the stand.

^^^ I would imagine getting ANY bike up on a stand is next to impossible when you don't have legs.

Dirtbike chicks rock...

I'm with you there man, dirtbike chicks and girl technicians are awesome, I only wish we had more around here! Kind of a rare breed up here I think, it seems that as far as the cute ones go we have mostly beach and mall chicks, who graduate into bar stars and vanity queens. lol

Uh yes. He actually could press it overhead as well. A lot to be said for being fit vs. buying the latest & greatest technology.

I have a Honda crf125 and a plastic fold out stand and I consider myself though not that weak and I still have trouble getting it on the stand I try and use my hips as a leverage but it works 50/50 of the time. What should I do???
