Filling engine oil

For those who does their own oil change by themselves (and doesnt have wheel chock) and not comfortable with holding the bike up straight while bending over to check level (or sitting on the ground while holding the bike up like Patrick's method), here is a method for you...

First time, ask a friend to help you hold the bike while to fill the oil to normal level. Put the bike on rear stand. The oil level will drop to a diff level. Use a marker or something and mark a line at this level.
The next oil change, just put the bike on the same rear stand and fill your oil to the marked line.
Go slow...You will live longer.
