    When I bought my Triumph and started speccing it up, the conversation was along the lines of "I'll have the centre stands and, let's see, what else..."

    Just read a couple of the Amazon reviews of that particular example, where purchasers were not happy with the item.

    If so - return it and perhaps try this one: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_f...r&_sacat=25622


    I can't find details of the particular model I use, but this is it. Worth noting that the rear tyre stays on the rollers naturally. This one, the nuts on the end of the roller rods are not nyloc, so occasionally slacken (nutlock would obviate this). You don't need a small ramp to get the bike on to it.



    Like I said - I find it works well.

    Of course - it doesn't allow removal of rear wheel if you wished to clean the wheel thoroughly, or take to tyre-fitter. SO - something like an Abba stand is useful also/instead of.

    I actually bought the Ryde version, which seemed to have better ratings than the one you'd linked to originally. Hopefully it'll be fine but I'll buy a stand as well - sadly the Abba doesn't fit Thruxtons.

    I use a block of wood under the side stand when I park my bike up in my bike shed,it gives me a bit more space or if I want to look at something on the left side.

    Only do this on flat ground of course.

    ABBA Stand

    Hi Tony, before pulling the pin on another paddock stand take a look at the ABBA Stand setup.

    I was very fortunate to have one gifted to me via a forum member and can honestly say it's the bee's knee's, so much so I've purchased a second one.
    At nearly 70 years of age it is so much safer and easier for me to wrestle the bike on and off a paddock stand.

    https://abbastands.co.uk/

    Cheers, Brian....aka BRGRSP.

    Thanks Brian. Sadly the ABBA doesn't fit the Thruxton, otherwise I'd have gone for that straight away.

    Hi Tony

    Dunno if this is applicable to your bike but thought its worth checking, maybe a bit of jiggerypokery is needed to make it fit perhaps.....

    I have an ABBA also.
    Almost impossible to use on a table lift, paddock stands are far easier.
    Also, some bikes have a very low s/a pivot, making it incredibly difficult to hoick it up.
    I have a full Harris set, and they are an absolute dream to use.
    Every one is light, easy to use, rustproof, and very sturdy, with great stability.

    I think that's the old 900, Stuart, but in any event I won't be cutting bits off the bike any time soon

    I haven't committed to a new stand yet as the attempted purchase yesterday went pear shaped, but am forming the view that a little extra on the Harris is probably money well spent.

    Ah right, no worries just thought it was worth a heads up. No idea on old or new Thruxtons, anyway Iím sure you get a suitable set up for your bike.

    Recommendations on these two Harris stands, please... which one is likely to be the easiest to use? The box stand is £64 more expensive so I'm just wondering if there are any tangible benefits?



    or

    Can't see them - hotlinked images. Not that I'd be any good for a recommendation anyway.

    cautionary tale, I have done this many times, usually when a little tight for garage space and have a few bikes side by side. Came down one morning and found my old blade half way over the other way and supporting itself by its tank on the engine bars of another bike. After much head scratching and "admiring" the big dent in the blade tank I noticed the rear tyre was flat. Must have ridden in the night before having picked up a slow puncture and the deflation of the tyre overnight had been enough to pivot the bike off the more upright side stand. Maybe a once in a lifetime happening, but a £500 tank fix nevertheless!

    I still use a block of wood when needs be, and pretty sure that's never going to happen again

    Hi Tony,
    I have used the more slender Harris stands of the two you show above, successfully for many years. They are lovely quality bits of kit. I just tried PM'ing you but your inbox is full.
    Best,

    Thanks Adrien, and also for the messages heads-up.

    Edit: looks like I’m now sorted with front and rear Harris stands... thanks, Adrian, you’re a star!

    On the subject of stands.

    I have one of these which I keep the Suzuki track bike on.

    https://www.1jac.com/

    It's good to get the bike off the ground as it often goes for months without being ridden over the winter. It helps with maintenance too & means the bike can be turned in it's own length.

    I also have paddock stands for use at the track (much easier to transport) and to use on the BMW. They are mostly cheapo ones I've had for years. The Oxford stands are OK, but very heavy. If I was buying now, I'd probably buy Harris, but the ones I have work OK.

    For front stands I much prefer prong style like this

    https://www.lightechuk.com/lightech-...gp-12692-p.asp

    as they seem more secure.

    Tail Bag

    Just fitted the Held Tenda tail bag to the rocket.

    Not a big bag, but should easily take a small flask or bottle of water, phone, sat nav, spare gloves and sunglasses etc.

    Looks fine!

    Reckon that is about as good as you will get without impacting on the aesthetics of the bike.

At the front contained within another zip is a carrying handle, and also hidden away is a shoulder strap..Oh and a water proof cover, although I think these types of bags should be made out of WP material in the first place.

    Not bad for for £52 quid.👍

    Having beeped it, I'm not 100% convinced I'll keep it on the bike. Might take it off and attach it to the lad's YBR

    I am just going to look at videos I may get one.

    I have put a small pouch from an oxford tank bag on my rear rack to carry petrol station type gloves and hand gel.

    very,very sadly a sign of the times.

    I see a couple of suggestions to tip the bike onto its side stand so raising the rear wheel off the ground - I would be careful using this method as some side stands are mounted directly to the engine/gearbox casing and the mounting point may not be able to handle the sort of strain that could be placed on it.

    I use paddock stands on my bikes, some with bobbins, others with pins that go through the axle on single-sided swing arms.

    So I passed my theory test last Saturday and contacted the training company I used for my CBT. Nothing back in relation to sorting my DAS out, so who can give me some recommendations on training companies to do my DAS.

    South/South East London - Kent region would be prefered.

    Thanks

    Been struggling to identify some acceptable-looking engine protection but then found these... they actually look great so will order through one of the UK ADs (got to be shipped over from Italy).

    Over the last couple of days I took a short trip up memory lane.
    I first dropped in to "A Bike Thing" to get Denali lights and SoundBomb installed and then meandered over to Stamford, a town I lived in for a while, some 40 years ago.
    From Stamford I rode around the area and revisited a couple of places I haven't been to since living there. One hadn't changed at all while the other has not been as well maintained as it was back then (but it's in a lot better condition than it has been, apparently).
    Unfortunately I didn't get to stop off at the Stibbington Diner (Stibbos), which used to be a favourite venue for a late (or very early) fry-up after a night out.

    Get another person (if you can) to pull the bike over/up on its sidestand, this will raise the rear and you can then spin the wheel to apply lube.

    They look perfect Tony.
    Completely integrated as if you can hardly notice them.

    Good call.

    I thought it was thatch or similar (although now I know what it is there are some clues at the top).
    I also thought that if it was round here some oik would have torched it by now (obviously not possible with horseshoes).

    Those horseshoes are near me. The house behind was the old forge - I think they just started chucking the most knackered shoes out into a pile then it just got a bit carried away!

    There must be some tonnage there - probably good scrap value. And given itís proximity to Newark, it is a surprise that it has lasted!

    Yes, some parts of the country it would be in the back of a transit tipper before you could blink!

    I'm sad to say I was expecting the worst, but was hopeful that it would still be there and intact; I was pleased to see that it is
