I'm a fan of the Abba stand. Safe, secure and easy to use :smile

However, be warned!

If you're a REAL PLONKER and start to dismantle the Abba stand when the bike's own side stand isn't fully down there's a risk of the bike toppling onto the Abba stand and cracking the fairings.....

Not that I would ever do something as stupid as that :winkie:

Abba stand.

The first time I lowered the R1 off the Abba stand I nearly dropped it because whilst the Kawasaki side stand stays down the R1's gets kicked up. I wasn't expecting that!
