    I disagree.

    The center stand is very good. Most people ride on pavement. For when I don't, I carry a couple of 2 by 4's that I could use under the center stand in the dirt.

    Carry a scissor jack also. Don't remove the centerstand.

    Not to totally disagree with you but have you tried to get the bike on the stand on a 2x4 in the dirt? It's hard to get the bike on the stand on the garage floor. And how do you get the hack or front wheel off while on the road shoulder. I am glad you carry a scissors jack. :1drink Happy New Year

    Sure have. Roll the pusher back over the first 2 x 4, then up onto a set of 2 x 4 ' s nailed together. Pull down center stand onto the first 2 x 4 and it's easy. As far as a garage floor, that is easy also. You could go the easy way and use the 2 by 4 method , but usually I just put it on a centerstand. Remember to have one foot on the stand, then with a motion like you are trying to pull the bike over the side car, it should pop up.

    As far as the front, put bike again on center stand, push the bike back so it's on the pusher, then prop 2 by 4 under the oil pan area. As for sidecar, I just lift it and let it rest on the engine guard.

    Always an easy way.

    If you like jacks, that's cool, but I feel pretty secure most of the time without. (I still have on just in case)

    No need for center stand or 2 by 4's:

    Parking in dirt as displayed on the home site

    There is also a less extreme way, which is often demonstrated at biker fairs.
    I spent too much time searching a picture. It's titled "Billy G and Odin show Ural parking". Maybe someone knows where that pic is?

    A 12-15 inch piece of round bar is good also. Good for helping get axles out, rear brake pedals.

    I got my first Ural sidecar (no bike) from David Hough who was given two for writing Ural's rider training manual which was the basis for the "Yellow book" When he first showed it to me he showed me the pocket in the trunk attached to the seat back and told me that is where you keep your Ural tools, I looked around, found a rock, dropped in the pocket and said, their all set.
    The next day I had it attached to my BMW R100/7
