I used to always be desirous of a centerstand, but I've changed and no longer think it's necessary, even for bigger bikes such as my DR650, which is still relatively lightweight. On my DR650, I just stick one of the luggage pieces under the swingarm or under the bashplate. The smaller bikes I find an object to use or just lay them on their side. But I don't have any physical limitation that prevents me from just muscling them around.


The Sym Wolf 150 is very attractive in terms of styling.
