Most definitely. When you lean the bike, the same forces are in effect. Think of the whole system; when we lean the bike while riding, the bike itself may be moving as one unit, however the link between the road and tire is effectively the same as the link he is using. In actuality, the only thing he has done with this stand is take the tire out of the equation.

I went to the website to see if I could obtain one for my drz: they do, but they are $279. Wow! I'll stick with the ratchet straps!
