How long, time wise, is the puppy dog from Greenfield to the campsite? Two of us are looking to take it up Friday if anyone wanted to join. Probably leave Greenfield around 9:30 or 10:00am.

Centerstand?

For those who have thrown a center stand on the Xco, which did you go with and would you recommend it? I've been looking at the Hepco & Becker. Also, I'm assuming these are pretty easy to install, no?
