    I've got one for my 1198s - if you do buy one make sure you get the castor kit, as it makes it a breeze to move the bike around the shop. I love mine.

                  For $650 you can buy a proper hydraulic motorcycle lift.

                    but would it be as useful and nifty?

                      I have a hydraulic lift, and it is both more and less useful than that device. It will lift higher, obviously, and also acts as a tool tray while you are using it :-) But it takes up a lot of space when you are not using it, too--that device would be VERY useful for moving a bike around in the shed, or turning it to go out, or even for cleaning--being able to rotate both wheels , etc. . I have three bikes , a stand, a scooter, random shit, and a workbench in my 1 1/2 car garage, and it is tight. Could really see a use for it, but the only bike I have listed is the ZRX1200, and it would be useless there, cos it lives in a seacontainer in a paddock. How does it attach to the frame/structure of the bike? Couldn't make it out from the video.

                        generally through holes in the frame

                          It is inserted into the bolts which go through the swingarm, and also the upper rear engine mount. I've seen two up at Wannaroo, Donsi with his MV, and Brett on his BMW.

                          Considering that good quality front (head stem) and rear stand combinations can cost in the vicinity of $530 nowdays for a sharp racing set, which is pretty much a fixed position, and requires two seperate stands.... an additional $120 (and shipping) for a single item which gives you complete clearance around the front forks & tyre, as well as the swingarm, as well as being completely mobile....I'd say its worth it.

                          The only downside, is unlike the normal front and rear stands, its not a universal fit, and you would require to buy fitting kits for multiple model bikes you may have in the shed.

                            The youtube videos really demonstrate how stable the bike is when the wheels are off the ground!

                            I agree with the PROS mentioned above. I do not think that it is over priced.

                            This is the only real CON in my opinion... :mellow:

                              Great idea, but...$$$.

                              Instead you could use something like a Sharp Crawler rear stand that has casters instead of normal wheels and costs about $220...and it would do the same job.
