I have spools on my swingarm-- that way there's absolutely no worrying about it tipping or sliding or anything. I can get on the bike and jump up and down and not have to worry about the stands moving at all... Pitbull FTW.


It sat like this for months last winter, and I wasn't concerned in the slightest bit.
