[QUOTE=Jettn Jim;21832344]Hey Steve just reading my little Sister Esthers Ride Report and had to post this clip up of her using your TrailStand near Laird HotSprings B.C. on her way to AK. Dang almost forgot I'd given it to her last May 2012!
She has been on the road 15months straight and notice her comment about the stand at the end of the 3rd paragraph, just above the pic

Here's a link to the RR if any of ya wanna read along

Peace,
JJ

The wait was over very soon and we all hopped back unto or into our vehicles and left.
I got back to Watson Lake around 11 and stopped at a gas station to fill up. I had good phone reception so my plan was to fill up, go to the grocery store that had a little diner area, and go online for a while. Yeah…….. the best laid plans…… I should know better by now!
As I hopped on Spirit I noticed that both my feet were actually able to touch the ground fully, no tiptoeing! Hmmm?????? Flat tire?? I looked down, sure enough! Another flat.
I could not even get off my bike it was that low, the kickstand wouldn’t work.
There was a guy on a GS parked a few yard in front of me against a building and I hollered HEY!
He looked over and I beckoned him to me. No idea what he was thinking
I explained my predicament and asked him to hold Spirit while I got off, and if he could help me push her into the dirt against the building nearby. He did and I got my little magical stand out of my bag and propped Spirit up so she wouldn’t tip over. (Jim, I don’t think you had any idea I would use this thing as much as I have when you gave it to me did you??)






Hey Jim!
Thanks for the post!..... "magical stand", I like that!

Reading the post it reminds me that the Trail Stand can also be used on a heavily loaded bike that wants to tip over too easily even on the kickstand when parked overnight for instance.

Flat tires can be an adventure too, one I like to get over as quickly as possible!

I've been plugging away filling orders and shipping Trail Stands

I'm sure most of my customers don't monitor this thread but any pic's or stories of the Trail Stand in use are always appreciated!



You never know when the Flat Gremlins will show up

Trail stand for the Sertao

Ordered mine today. Happy to not dump $250 on a center stand! (I need that $$ for beer )

Product-in-use pics on the Sertao to come soon. Cheers!

Great Picture Yellow Pig! And that's a great looking 690 with the Rally Raid fairing and tanks!

Steve is the MAN!!!!

I lost part of the trail stand last week and need to use it this week to swap out new tires. Steve was so quick to help, that I'll have fresh knobbies ready to roll tomorrow night.

Not only is the trail stand an essential part of any tool kit, but his customer service and willingness to work with me/you, is a benchmark we all should strive for.

Thanks Steve, you are the man!

Thanks! I try to help out my customers when I can, I do appreciate your business!

Just to let folks know, I'm running low, late summer rush has hit and I can cover the orders I have but soon there will be a short wait for the next run of Trail Stands.
Thanks again!

Hope I'll never have to use it!

Just ordered one. I'm a little worried about stability but it never rains when you're bringing an umbrella so no worries!

Don't be. It supports my 500 pound dirt bike no problem.

It's more about how and where you locate the stand, not on how rugged or beefy it is.

FINALLY ordered mine today. I've been watching people use this thing for a long time now, and it works every time. Same as above, I'm saving weight and money on buying this over a centerstand and it should do just the trick. No more laying the bike down to change flats. Looking forward to it. Keep up the good work.

Riding with some friends in MI and we used one (my first time) quite a few times. Worked amazingly well each and every time.
