Just ordered mine, looks to be the ticket. My new to me vstrom 650 is the first bike Ive owned that doesn't have a center stand, and that has me stumped when even thinking of doing my own maintenance.

Thanks Renegade! It will be on the way today!

The Trail Stand works for some light maintenance but I have to admit I use a more substantial stand in my garage when doing maintenance. The Harbor Freight rear swingarm stand is what I use on my Cagiva Gran Canyon, which is bike similar to yours. Your bike is pretty heavy to lift so I don't in general recommend it because I don't want anyone to hurt their back lifting such a heavy bike. I will let you decide if the Trail Stand makes sense for you.

used it twice on my last trip, that thing was MONEY!





it worked extremely well (been carrying mine around for 2 years unused) and the little velcro deal for the front brake made it really nice.

good product!

A confession: I chickened out and got a centerstand for my fatso DL1000. Also I don't ride and/or oil the chain on my DR enough. Those two combined mean I just got around to trying out the trail stand yesterday. Happy to report it worked great, boosted the tire off the ground, gave it a good spin, and sprayed down the chain. A+.

Hey hyperboader, I think you did the right thing, I really dont recommend the Trail Stand for heavier bikes than the KTM Adventures or SE950's. Not because the Trail Stand cant support them but beacause they are very heavy to lift, don't want someone to hurt their back, and dont have as good of points to lift by. It is exactly made for a bike like your DR. Basically to put a range on it I would say that bikes with 21 inch front wheels from the factory are the target group for the Trail Stand. As they say at the end of the day you have to make the decision if using the Trail Stand is good for you and your bike, it is a jack stand afterall and needs to be treated as such.

This thing works slick on the 2012 DL650. I have just messed around with it testing getting the back wheel up in the garage/yard and used it to oil the chain. Good deal

Thanks! Yes, the moto-mule is my product.. Or as my wife might say... my mistress... I spend a little bit too much time at the shop lately!!!

Look forward to getting my trail stand, honestly hoping I don't need it tho!! That's how it works right?? Carry it, and you won't end up needing it!!

Well, it will do the trick when in a pinch. I am thinking a stand will be better for driveway type work, but Ive already propped it up out there and seen that i can work with the bike on that stand. not too heavy either if you leverage it all right ;)

It will stay with my tire repair kit at minimum. Thanks for getting it here so quickly!

Just ordered mine. I'm a tire repair noob, and not staying long term where I am-- so buying a bunch of bulky tools like a jack/lift isn't practical. I was thinking I'd have to change my first tube by laying my bike on the ground, but luckily I was guided to your site and then to this thread. I already know that this thing will make my life, as far as motorcycling is concerned, so much easier.

I've used mine a half dozen times and to me it's worth every penny

I put a piece of 2-by under the side stand on my 09 KLR, lean into the right side of the bike and slip the TS onto the frame just in front of the foot peg - rear wheel (raising links and 606) in the air, and the bike is solid. Thanks, and I'll try to remember to get picture(s) and post them next time I use it.

Great product, no connection other than happy user.
