F8GS first time front tire change- how to chock?

Front Battlewings are dead at 12,000 miles.

New Tourance is standing by.

My reading and searching tells me I need to chock the front end because the bike is weighted too heavy to the front to balance on the centerstand. But none of the posts I've found are very clear on the how part of keeping the front off the ground.

My question: who has done it without the fancy axle stand and what did you do to keep the bike up?

Feel free to point me to an appropriate posting, if I've missed it.
