Meanwhile, no one wants your stands from Company X, and you get to deal with people on Craigslist offering to trade you a used muffler off their 96 civic.

Or you can just buy Pit Bulls right from the beginning.

In the end (assuming no failures with your Company X stands), which ones cost you more?

This is my choice on stands:

Good one

Finally I can get my chain lubed the way I like and get those wheels sparkling

Rear looks great. I don't know about the front stand? Just the way it goes into the forks that worries me. But that may be just me.

I use the Powerstands at the track for my Gixxer for the tire warmers and they've been dependable for the last five years. However, as I said, not my choice as a front stand for the BMW.
