My goal with this is to share some of the things I have learned over many years of riding and racing. On the surface it may seem like a good idea to save a few dollars on a motorcycle stand (I made the same mistake myself many years back) because there are so many things a rider needs to support their addiction. I am sure that there are many riders who have used inexpensive stands and never had an issue. That said, I also know for a fact that there are tons of riders who have had a bike fall from a junk stand. When this happens, most will replace the junk stand with a Pit Bull or Woodcraft and add that cost to the repair bill from the drop. So, final question: are you really saving money buying a cheap stand if it leads to repair bills and replacement stands?
Pit Bull and Woodcraft are both US compaines that engineer and manufacture their products in the U.S.A. When you buy one of their products you get a great product (most important reason to buy) and support a company that has brought many innovations to our sport, improving it for everyone. I am proud to offer both Pit Bull and Woodcraft products here at STG, not to mention using them on my own bikes.
