Pit Bull Hybrid One Armed Rear Stand BMW
Well built! Recommended and worked as advertised.
I needed to remove both the front and rear wheels from my 2007 K1200GT (big heavy bike!!).
I bought the front stand first and Pit Bull recommended that I should not use the front stand alone. I also needed the rear stand. Although some forum posts seemed to suggest removing the rear wheel or putting the center stand up on a wood block a few inches - and then using the front stand. I opted for the safe solution, using both the rear and front stands. I'm not a huge guy (185 lbs) and this stand made it possible to easily lift my bike.
I would recommend having the bar towards the center of the bike, that way you can prop up the bike on the center stand first, then when your coming down (hardest part) the center stand will stay up (That's just a suggestion, worked for me, be CAREFUL and use your own judgement of course!!) If you point the arm towards the rear of the bike DO NOT use the center stand because the bike will roll forward and possibly disengage the center stand when coming down.
In summary, this stand is when built, worked great and was able to lift my K1200 GT without too much effort.

Awesome Pit Bull Quality
I've owned several Pit Bull products. All are well made quality pieces that are made in America. Can't go wrong with anything from them. And this is the easiest Pit Bull stand I've ever used. Simple, one person lifts.

Excellent BMW R Nine T Rear Stand
Great stand that is well made and easy to use. The stand can be easily used by one person without fear of dropping the bike. I use it for working on bike as well as for storing the bike and keeping the weight off the back for longer periods of time.

High quality stand
The stand comes well packaged in tons of bubble wrap so there wasn't a scratch on it when I received it. Assembly is just one bolt to attach the arm and then it's ready to use. It looks very substantial and securely supports my R1200S.

Solidly built here in the U.S.A. The only stands I trust lifting my bike. Worth the money spent.

Have been wanting/needing one for a while as I do not have a center stand or the option to get one put on. The BMW factory accessory is like 3X the price, No thanks. This pitbull is well made and easy to use. I like the option of being able to move the handle and have it rest in towards the center of the bike.
Easy to assemble, easy to use, very well made and looks really nice, like something you would see in a racing pit.
Would definately recommend.

Simple, Functional & Beautifully Crafted
Bought the Pit Bull One Armed Rear Stand for my newly purchased 2005 BMW K1200S. This is a beautifully crafted, simple solution to storing my bike upright since it does not have a center stand and I just can't bring myself to cut into the beautiful belly pan to install one. I love the simplicity of the design and the attractive finish. I wouldn't necessarily expect a motorcycle stand to look good but this one does. I am very pleased with the quality of this product and was happy to see it is American made.
