That's about as cheap as you're going to get right there.

Everyone will chime in and tell you to get PitBull stands in... 3.. 2.. 1.. Which you can get from the local dealers here and are the best.

But for cheaper than PitBull, T-Rex Racing stands are decent.

If you want something to make it easier to move the biek around the garage why are you looking at stands? The bike has wheels on it and rolls a hell of a lot better than when it's on a set of stands (you should not try to move a bike that is on a front stand at all), the rear stand you can kind of pick it up a little and push it but hte front wheel will try to turn on you..

Those are not meant for moving the bike around. The wheels are there for the stand to slide under the bike as it lifts.

If you're looking to save a few bucks, check the classifieds for some used stands.

use the search function. Besides tires, oil, and if fat chicks give the best beejay, you have brought up some of the most talked about things on this board.

be nice to the newb
but if you aren't looking for stands, you may be looking for a motorcycle dolly. those will move the bike around the garage easily.
take a look on google for that

If you are looking for something like that, I believe Pilotx1 build something like that.

And seriously, welcome to the site. Knowledge is power, and I used to be guilty of not using the search feature. If you make your way out to ACC in Joliet on the 7th, I'll bring lunch for you. As others will tell you, my wife is a hella cook. It shows, I'm a fat ass.

Yes that is what i was looking for!

Dave i have been a member of a lot of boards! No worries about hurting my feelings! You are correct i should have searched first.

I don't think i can make it on the 7th! I have a friends b-day party. I am sure i will catch you some where else.

Thanks
Tony

Sign up online for their mailing list (email) it goes on sale often for at least 20 bux off, also they shoot out 20% off any item coupons all the time, which is the same thing.
