Pit Bull Forward Handle Standard Rear Stand
Best stand on the market
Went with the forward handle and I'm glad I did. Easy for one person to use. Very sturdy. Used "non" spooled on Ducati 696 Monster.

Works for Honda CBR250R
No problems using by myself. Never felt that my bike was at risk of falling down, and the supports are quite level when on the stand (doesn't look like it will slide forward off the stand).
Had a little annoyance with the width adjustment of the stand - it kept loosening even though I tried tightening it hard. I really jammed it in as hard as I could this time, so we'll see if it still stays when I take the bike back out in the spring.

Good in tight spots
Have a small space to store my bikes ,the foward handle stand lets me use all my space . Put bike on stand and push back to wall . Bike has no spools so I needed regular stand . It's much easier to put on stand than the center stand . Very stable and well built .

Nice - durable, sturdy, looks good...
I choose to go with the Forward Handle do to space constraints. Easy first time setup - and easy to use thereafter.
I am standing a 2006 Ducati Monster 620 (swing arms on both sides) - no problems so far.
This thing feels bomb-proof and I like that it will last for the duration of my ride time. It is adjustable - but just one bike for now?

Not for nonspooled swingarms
The build quality is awesome, it was easy to assemble, easy to adjust and most importantly, easy to use.
I bought this stand because I frequently need to put my bike on a stand by myself, and while thats possible with a regular rear stand, it seemed like it would be far easier with this one.
The problem lies in the standard rubber pads. The rubber is simply slipped onto a metal rod, easily spins on the mounts, and provides little surface area to make contact with the swingarm. The result? A bike that simply wont stay put.
So far I have been unable to find any position to put this stand where the bike will not slide off..
The other option of course is to get spool adapters (~$70 for my bike) and spool mounts for the stand ($15) and it should work fine (due to the position of the spool adapters, this would cause clearance issues with the kick stand down, however), but now we're well over $200 into something that it just for a slight convenience.
For the meantime I think I'm going to return this stand and go back to my $50 "trackside" brand stand.

Good bike stand
I hate the idea of dropping my bike and I probably could get use to using a rear stand that raises the bike from the rear, but for the same price why take the risk and take up the space (tripping hazard) in the back.
*This is a quality product that will definitely last longer than your bike.
