If your bike did not come with a center stand, and you mostly ride back and forth between the same three or four places (home/work/groceries/etc...you are very boring), and want maximum upright parking security here's a sure-fire solution you can count on for years. Big and heavy just like the real ones, so you'll never loseit and no one will ever want to borrow it. Unique design fits all bikes, and it's built to last. Smaller bikes only need one. Larger bikes may require two or more. Block Stands are inexpensive enough so you can leave a few of them around, pre-placed, ready wherever you are most likely to be parking. These are faster and easier to use than any other stand. They lessen the rate of long-term suspension sag, and save side stand pivot bolt wear, too! One weighs 16.2 lbs, so we recommend surface shipping.
