Bursig Motorcycle Stand The Bursig Center Lift Stand is a 100 German-made, frame-lift paddock stand that is designed to lift your bike up vertically and allow you to maneuver it around the garage or paddock area. Have a tight space in your garage Not a problem - the Bursig stand can lift the bike and turn it on a dime allowing you to position your bike in almost any space that would normally take a 50-point turn to get into. The Bursig Stand makes maneuvering your bike a piece of cake! In addition to its maneuverability, Bursig Stands make oil changes, wheel removals, chain cleaning, engine work and nearly any type of service easier - as long as it does not require removing the frame. An adapter plate specific to your motorcycle is required for the Bursig stand to work with your bike ( sold separately ). Features 100 German-made Galvanized and powder coated finish Lifetime factory warranty Includes a complete caster wheel set Notes Adapter plate not included ( sold separately ). Caution, only use Bursig Stands on level and even surfaces.

First of all, I jumped at the opportunity to buy this when I discovered RevZilla offering the Bursig at a VERY competitive price. Certainly, a high initial cost, especially factoring in the required bike-specific Adapter plate. But, when I searched around after seeing RZ's price, I realized it simply won't be beaten! Once purchased and assembled, you'll probably never go back to regular stands or chocks. Lifting operation from one side is safe and efficient. On track days, the bike is lifted quickly, and tire warmers are fitted that much sooner. For maintenace, ease of access and freedom from swingarm or front fork stand space requirements make work that much easier. My only gripe, and it's small: when lifted, my bike has a slight but noticeable lean to the right. Not horrendous, but I'm picky. Not really worth mentioning, but I want an accurate assessment for the buyer's sake. Any questions? I'll answer as best as I can. This Bursig and my self-service tire changing stand (brand name rhymes with 'Go Far') are the two best investments I've made in 24 years of biking!
Yes, I recommend this product.

2007 Teknic Violator Jacket

This jacket is the best I've bought to date! The venting is exceptional, and even works a little too well on those cooler mornings. The full sleeve liner is a nice touch, adding windproof warmth, although I bought this at springtime, and didn't have the opportunity to test it during the harsh, So Cal winter... ;) The leather itself is already soft and very pliable, with a great cut and design. It tends to fit a little more loosely than the same-size, old Teknic Chicane jacket I still use (since 2004), as the size 40 must also accomodate the thick liner. Without the liner, the jacket tends to feel like a more loose-cut jacket which doesn't fit as closely to the body as I'd like. Not that I need a skin-tight feel, but I prefer not having leathers flap in the wind, or feel loose. The full circum. zipper works well with my Chicane leather pants, although there is a somewhat noticeable contrast between the smoother, more glossy look of my Violator's black leather (on the blu/blk jacket) vs the flat black leather of the Chicane pants. The snap on the collar is a nice touch, as my old Chicane jacket relied on velcro to stay closed... the velcro is pretty worn out and doesn't stay fastened if I do anything like look down at my feet. Fortunately, I don't have too much of a jock-neck, as there is no adjustability with the snap closure on the collar. Overall construction/seams/etc, are blemish-free. I found only one small threading beginning to unravel at the left side velcro waist-cinch strap. Or more precisely, at the seam on the left side which is covered up by the cinch strap. Minor, and the only concern on an otherwise carefully executed sewing job. The jacket itself is nicely symmetrical on both sides; something I tend to notice on products with complicated detailing like a m/c jacket with multiple layers and colors. In other words, laid flat and inspected, the design elements/seams/features, etc are lined up and match left and right, top to bottom. This jacket was something I wanted the moment I saw it (especially in the blk/silv), but unfortunately, was just a little too expensive to warrant a persuasive argument with the wife. At RevZilla's killer close-out pricing, it was impossible to pass up! I settled on the blu/blk as a second choice, and feel glad I didn't go with the wht/red! The minimal amount of white on the blu/blk is hard enough to keep white with the amount of pollution in the Southern California air. I tend to prefer leather over textiles, but have to admit that the labor involved in keeping leather clean and supple can be bothersome. White leather is too much work even for a committed nut-case like myself. If you're considering a high-quality leather jacket, you've got a great steal with this close-out 2007 Violator. The 2008 Violator is a step back in style, in my opinion. This is absolutely the best jacket I've ever purchased, and at this price, I smile knowing that patience paid off!
Pros Comfortable, Rugged, Fashionable, Great Value
Yes, I recommend this product.
