I have never seen a bike put on a "rear" race stand... can one person do it or will it take two, (one to hold the bike and one to put the stand under it?)
It's not ignorance Boo. This is exactly what this site is all about. Anyway, a bike stand is for raising the rear and/or front of your motorcycle to do mechanical work, cleaning, etc. They are really handy and a MUST if you own a bike. There are several different types and prices for stands, but they all basically serve the same purpose. I'll post a pic just for you so that you can visually see what we're talking about. BTW, I hope you don't mind me calling you "Boo?" That's just a habit that I have when talking directly to females. No harm or flirting intended O.K.?Sowwy for my ignorance...but what is the use of the stand?
