    Thanks MtnRider2! :D

    I do my best to get the orders out the same day if a all possible and USPS 2-3 Priority Mail is the best deal going for shipping in my opinion.

    My friend bigalsmith101 has used his from here thru South America on his epic journey!

    I keep this tool in my top case, no matter what. An excellent tool to have on any trip. I don't think that the curbside repair in mainland Mexico gives the tool it's full credit deserved.

    Let's try... This one. (Playa Del Carmen, Mexico)

    Or this one... (Panamanian Hostel, Checking wheels/bearings)

    OR this one, Likely to be the most memorable birthday of my entire life. Turning 25 in the highlands of Bolivia!

    Do yourself a favor and buy one of these tools if you don't have one already. They are that good.

    Thanks Andy! Sounds it took about 7 days to get to you in Australia :clap

    Here's a pic of my friends 640 a while back with a flat in Oz (Kansas) as opposed to AUS :D

    It's on the way DirtRider....you do get the ESP "anti-flat karma" just don't ride over anything sharp and you should be good! :lol3

    It does come in handy when your riding buddies need a lift too! :D

    Thanks for the order!

    Out in the Flint Hills Saturday for a great ride! Then the dreaded flat rears its ugly head, got it fixed and back on the way a lot easier having a Trail Stand along. :D
    I was on this ride, and got to help with the flat repair, I know just lucky I guess :lol3 but thanks go to BigO for the picture.

    A KTM with a flat front out on the trail a while back on a ride I was on in Arkansas

    And by the way the Trail Stand will fit in most fender bags, it breaks down to 10-1/8" long with the cradle and foot removed!

    Uh oh....the Trail Stand guy's personal anti-flat karma ran out, at least I made it home before it went flat, so I got that goin for me :evil
    I'll be using the Trail Stand to fix this today and I'll document the process, maybe even add a few flat fixing tips.....stay tuned

    Mine arrived a few weeks ago. I immediately drove out to ocotillo, hit the throttle up a wash, and found a large jagged rock on which to pop my front tube. All so I could put this thing to use (it was burning a hole in my gear bag).

    It worked well despite my inability to use it properly (as should be made evident by the harsh lean angle). Still very pleased and glad i didn't have to throw the bike on its side to get the job done. Thanks guys! Awesome product.

    Thanks for the post biensur22!
    To help stability on almost any bike the more vertical the bike is when on the Trail Stand the more down force on it and the stability increases greatly, especially when lifting the front wheel.
    I posted the pic below to show how something under the kickstand to get the bike as vertical as practical before placing the Trail Stand increases the down force on the Trail Stand.
    Obviously you wont be carrying a piece of wood like this but a flat rock or something should do the trick.

    Steve received my order yesterday and it arrived in my mailbox TODAY!! Wow. Unbelievable. And that's not the best part ... this stand is STRONG. Pictures don't do it justice. If it weren't for everyone on this thread saying how wonderful it is, I probably wouldn't have bought it for fear that it wasn't stout enough. Well, that initial impression was absolutely unfounded. Great buy. Steve was great to deal with too. I sent him a couple emails asking some questions and he was super quick in getting back to me. Great partnership between buyer and seller. I can't recommend this highly enough.
