MY NEWEST DILEMMA

ok so it goes like this

At the last TWS (Texas World Speedway) my left toe got into the pavement coming out of turn 6 and it caused the front to wash out.....because of the shift lever and the kickstand, my foot gets wedge in their and acts like a tripod for the bike..... so i removed my kickstand and thought well how am i going to get the bike up on the two stands to get the warmers back on between sessions
so i came up with an idea for another kickstand(way too complicated) and a friend said well why dont you just stick it in there and i said ok fug it

so i built one...primed and painted it...i made it a tripod type so that i can reach when i pull back into the pits without help and i can get the stands under it with no help...and removed the kickdtand switch so i gotta be careful when doing maintenance or riding around cuz it doesnt have the kickstand skill witch anymore

woohooo score one more for the gimp , i just havent figure out the trailer part yet, i might just get a wheel chock setup, and just ride up into it boiii

anyway heres pics and i got make another shift lever tommorow or the day after, but thats another thread

Looks good! Have you thought about maybe using a Baxley chock? that way you can roll into it in the pits or the trailer.
Just a thought.

If you roll the bike out of the chock once it's on the stand, it'll accomplish what you're looking to do.
Come by the shop and I can show you what I'm talking about.
