Tried buying a TS3 off your website. How do add the freight for international for payment?
I've never encouraged it's use for bikes larger that a KTM 990 because of the the fact that you lift the bike to place the Trail Stand in place and that is a lot of weight to lift. People use it successfully for larger bikes but that is up to them to determine the safe use of, lifting the bike and placing the Trail Stand to achieve stability is the issue.
I see your order from auckland, and from you location under your forum name here.
Plenty of parts back in stock ready to go. How about some new pics of use out on the road/trail? Always like to see how and where they are used!
Really interested in your product but shipping costs to Europe make it quite pricey. Not thinking about a European distributor?
I've been working on it will a well known rider/supplier in Europe, but the numbers make it difficult since the parts are quality built in the U.S. not China. That said U.S. shipping is 2-3 day priority for about $9, which is a great deal for the speed of delivery, wish I could find the equivalent for international!
Well, I just bought one off you!
Tried making my own, because I'm a miserable tightwad, and then I actually used your product, borrowed it off a mate.
And doesn't that work a treat.....
Ordered one today to Poland, we'll see how long it takes to get it :)
It's on the way! Should be in Poland in a couple of days then I believe it will go thru customs and then to you. Typically it's 7-10 days international, it will be interesting to see how long it takes to Poland. You should see a tracking number in your email soon. Thanks for the order!
I tried mine in the garage to understand how it all worked before hopefully never needing it on the trail. It was totally stable in both my KTM 500 and XR400 but for a little piece of mind I bought a cheapo KS pad and cut it in half. One for the Trail Stand and one for the Kick Stand. Fits perfectly in my Giant Loop Mojave. Thanks for a well built and simple product.
I've used it with my V-Strom DL1000 many times with no issues. It's plenty strong for Moose-class bikes!
On a really big bike like the Vee, it's very difficult or impossible to reach around and down far enough to place the stand while holding one wheel up, so you really need a second person.
ok, got today package, actually yesterday but I was not at home so pretty good time to Europe, 7 days!
stand looks solid, will try soon with my honda Goldwing
Used mine again for the DR650 when I got a front pinch flat riding the Shenandoah 500 a couple weeks ago. Made sure to park in a good location that offered good stable support for the kickstand and the Jack stand. Worked perfectly and got the tube replaced without any issues. I've had the stand for a few years and it's been with me for at least 10k miles...still looks and works like new.
Ok good to know, and for those who may not recognize it the "Goldwing" is a joke, it's definitely not for a goldwing.
Interesting video I stumbled across today. Check out that trail stand used with the 790 Adv.
On our ride in Stonyford / Cow mountain area (in northern CA) yesterday, one of our riding friends got a flat on his DR650. He whipped out your stand and got to work. I was impressed by the functionality and the tiny form factor (for storage). Excellent product. I've just ordered one for my self.
one suggestion of improvement IMO is to include rubber foot cover to not slide on pavement.
The foot is intended to always be flat on the ground/pavement not tilted like you see in some pictures and even videos, the only force on the Trail Stand should be a down force not a lateral force.The minimal angle in the picture above is not significant That is how it is intended and how I have always used it. That said people will use it how they see fit and have to determine what is best for themselves, always being safe of course. Be sure to read the instructions, I know they seem long, it's amazing how describing what seems like a simple task takes more words than you would think.
Great picture CA_BMW....thats what the Trail Stand is for, to get you going again!
maybe Jens from Offroad-Kontor.de would be interested. His mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
