I seriously damaged the fairing on my GSXR 750 with an Abba stand. However, that was entirely my fault and nothing to do with the design of the stand - like you say, they're not idiot proof! :lol:

The front wheel

...doesn't necessarily, (in my opinion), have to roll, there are wheels on the stand that can do that. Although the wheels on my stand do roll easier on some surfaces than others I must say. I had my bars as straight as it's possible to judge them to be straight but still they turned mid way and over she went. And...it happens so damn quickly :shock:
