    Thanks for the info and the kind words Pete!
    Glad to hear it got to the UK in short order!

    I think you'll find it works well on the G650 X, as you can see on my friends BMW below.
    And I'm curious how you will mount the pelican box to the skidplate, a pic would be great when you get it set up!
    Thanks again!

    I want.... please.

    I've been riding through some rather remote areas for the last three months and dreading the thought of a flat tyre.

    Payment sent! This will be one of the tools I carry that I hope to never have to use but will come in mighty handy if and when I do. Looks like it will fit right in the Wolfman Front Fender bag to boot! :clap

    Ride to middle of no where in Bolivia on dirt roads, 30 miles from nearest town, and get flat rear tire at 40mph and nearly crash and burn.
    [​IMG]
    Whip out your trail stand and secure front brake lever.
    [​IMG]
    Remember to take a picture of what the middle of no where looks like in Bolivia.
    [​IMG]
    Grab trail stand and adjust for the right height. Kneel at the side of the unloaded bike, push with left hand towards kickstand, and set trail stand under frame member. Viola, you created the second half of your center stand.
    [​IMG]
    Remove wheel then tire, then tube, and find puncture, and remember that you have no patch kit and no pump. Realize your basically screwed and you haven't seen a car in the 30 minutes you've spent on the side of the dirt road in the middle of no where Bolivia.
    [​IMG]
    Collect scrub brush branches to stuff in empty tube to support weight of loaded overland adventure bike for next 50km to paved road and hopefully a tire shop (llanteria).
    [​IMG]
    Take picture of one of the donor scrub brush bushes.
    [​IMG]
    Put tire bake one, stuffed full of branches from scrub brush bushes.
    [​IMG]
    Take picture of proof of less scrub brush bush branches. They are really in the tire.
    [​IMG]
    Put tire back on.
    [​IMG]
    Ride at 18mph for about 20 minutes in the middle of no where Bolivia on dirt roads.
    [​IMG]
    After realizing your scrub brush bush branches are just pulverizing, whip out the trail stand, secure front brake lever, adjust stand, and lift rear wheel of the ground.
    [​IMG]
    This time use wheat grass.
    [​IMG]
    Stuff shit loads into rear tire.
    [​IMG]
    Ride 40km (25miles) further and see town in the distance.
    [​IMG]
    Arrive at town and have celebratory Coca Cola, though you realize you just ran out of gas and have to go find more for sale from a local with a 5gl gas can, and then ride still flat tire to tire shop where you have to remove the rear wheel for the third time with the Enduro Trail Stand, and look like a pro in front of locals as you whip out the previously practiced drill for the third time that day.

    I WILL NOT EVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT THIS PRODUCT ON A BIKE WITHOUT A CENTER STAND EVER! PERIOD.

    Big Al's RR is the reason I have one of these on the way. He makes for quite the testimonial!

    Alex, anytime you're riding through or near Wichita, Ks. let me know and we'll hook up.
    I might even be able to get the inventor of the "endurostar Trail Stand" to join us, as he lives not far away.
    Lots of small town's with "Mom & Pop" cafe's in the area with great home cooking style meals.
    I have been lurking on your thread since nearly the begining, and enjoying your report, I wish
    you the best of luck....
    Sorry Steve-----HI-JACK OFF -----------

    No Hi-Jack at all KS-Rydr, I'm right in there with ya! I'd love to hear the stories from Big Al first hand one of these days!

    That post deserves to be bumped to the new page
    I mean how often do you get to see your product used in a place like Bolivia afterall, I've sent them all over the world but don't get the feedback like Big Al's often :clap

    Hi Jeremy,

    I've been approached by a distributor to sell them in Australia, the problem was the price increase that it would cause to the rider after a distributor and a retailer markup was so much I didn't want to do it.

    Let me ask you and the riders in Australia, what is a reasonable price to pay if the Trail Stand were available in Australia either at a central point for mail order, or at your local shop?

    Right now it's $27.50 U.S. each, international shipping is $15 for 1-5 stands shipped in the same box. (all international shipping is the same $15 rate up to 5 stands in one box by the way, pretty good deal I think)

    If you want to talk possibilities send me a p.m. or email me at endurostar@yahoo.com I'm always open to ideas! :D
