question about rear stands ...

are the ones with the handle in the front

http://www.kneedraggers.com/image_st...7d69_rough.jpg

all that much better than the ones with it on the back?

Thanks

I would assume it makes it easier to get the stand out, but we're talking about personal preference here.

I just wanted to see one in action.

I have a Pit Bull like the one in the pic for my R6 and I love it. You dont trip over it and you can hold the bars while you raise it, makes it way easier and safer.

Gotta pitbull (front and rear) and like it. Vortex also makes a good one that holds your axel. The cyclecat looks pretty cool tool.
