Thanks to the .org and the threads on stands





#1
Been cleaning my chain the poor mans way of roll the bike forward, spray, scrub, wipe, repeat since i got the bike. all the talk on stands here lately got me thinking about getting a set.

so after reading much into it, i'm in the market right now to buy a set of stands. Talked with Ian and I know which ones i'm going to be getting from Redline, just have to wait until the end of the month before i can get them probably.:banghead:

I've never put a bike on a stand before, so needless to say, the thread that was started the other day about putting it on yourself was a big helper. I borrowed my brothers vortex rear stand so i could at least clean and wax my chain this morning since i cant ride for more than 10 minutes anyways right now, and after putting my grab bar on(MUST SAY THIS IS A -DO MUST FOR A NEWB LIKE ME) and taking my time balancing the bike and getting it lined up, got the bike up in the air with no problems. I will say however, i wish my brothers stand had a longer handle on it to get some easier leverage:thumbsup:

anywho.....just saying thanks guys.

if anybody wonders why the name "Cookie Monster", the picture will explain it. It was a big joke between my brother and myself after one of our stops headed to the spring bash this past april:rofl: he had to get a pic
