I've never had a front stand. Always put my bikes on the lift backwards with the rear wheel in the chock and jack up on the frame/engine. For whatever reason I now think want a front stand for when my lift's tied up. Looking at the Pit Bull Hybrid Dual Lift stands. Why would you ever want to lift off the fork tubes if you can go to the bottom triple? Can you get them in and out without scratching the fender/fairing?
