I too have one of these and have used it on a couple of occasions with my G650X Challenge. My local shop will change my tires using their machine, but they charge less if I remove the wheels myself. I ride up and remove each tire one at a time using my trail stand for support. The savings at my local shop has more than justified the small cost of the trail stand. I'm very happy with mine.

I have yet to try using it on my GS Adventure and I'm not sure I will need to since it has a center stand...
