Been looking at motorcycle stands, and have seen two types, one that is like a milk crate, and another that has a lifting platform to raise the bike. The lifting platform does not seem like it would be very stable with the engine running. How does one person raise the 230 lb. bike to set it up on a milk crate platform? Do you lever it up using the kickstand, and then lower it onto the platform? Does anyone have any recommendations on what to look for in a stand, or where to buy? Is a milk crate just as good? Thanks for the advice.
