Abba stand ....
In over 20yrs of riding I never bought a paddock stand or bike lift (tended to have bikes with centre stand). So which route do I go with the CB? Any recommendations? Do you get much benefit from the lifts over the stands?
Abba stand ....
Abba! With a little practice, it becomes very easy and quick to use.

ABBA as above say's and you can have front wheel out as well, without buying another stand.
If your going do it do right. Both wheels off the ground and you can roll.it around. Bersig racing paddock stand

If you do go for an Abba stand, make sure you order the correct one for the year of your bike as there is a difference between the diameter of the nylon bung for the thickness of paint on the later models. The Honda dealers got me the wrong one and the bung kept getting stuck, however the people at Abba were kind enough to supply one with the reduced diameter.
I have the Abba and can vouch for it, its tried and tested, i also have their own front lift arm which is seconds to use and lifts the front wheel off the ground, it fully intergrates with the main abba and is decent value for money compared to the more expensive full lifts
Wow resounding Abba voices there!
I have the Pit Bull front and rear stands. Absolutely love them! Best stands I have ever owned.
The Abba is simple, effective engineering at a pretty cheap price - that you can use it on practically any other bike with the right fitting kit is pretty genius - I have front and rear stands and they are a faff compared to this - you can take off everything with an Abba, except the swing arm (and there's even a kit that allows this by instead anchoring under the footrests). Very clever stuff from a few bits of metal !
