Pit Bull Rear Stand Triumph Bonneville
Great stand, quick and easy assembly/disassembly
Works as advertised, the fit is a little tricky for my bike due to the fact that the license plate frame on the back along with the subframe holding it all together with the tail light comes really close to the handle. Remove the plate holder prior to doing this if you own a CTX like mine.
I had to use my body weight against the rear of the CTX to push it into a neutral balance position and then carefully push the handle of the pitbull down (praying that nothing slips since I have no helpers).
This should make my future maintenance cycles considerably easier, as it was having the rear of the bike up in the air was a lot easier on the knees and back.
The nuts on the stand pegs have a wrench type socket that it seats inside of, while useful it can get in the way if you have to move the peg outward and still need to tighten it.
Thanks for the gear RevZilla, i'll be back for more soonish, I have to empty that wish list out. ;)
This product is extremely sturdy and will last years.
(I Brought out some Profoto studio gear to light the bike for the shot)

Easy to use and Very sturdy
Although more money than I wanted to spend, the Pit Bull stand works as advertised. It makes working and detailing my bike a cinch.

Works Perfect - Very Stable
Having purchased a brand new Triumph Bonneville back in August I did not want to bugger it up with a center stand so I got the Pit Bull instead. This was all new to me so I was apprehensive the first time I used it to adjust the chain tension. Now I have used it a number of times and that fear is gone. I could not give this product a better recommendation!

Works as advertised
The stand is very easy to set up out of the box. Definitely watch the videos on how to use the stand. It's a bit tricky to use by one person, balancing the bike with your left hand, and lifting the bike on the stand with your right hand. Maybe it gets easier after a few times, but it would be a lot easier with a second pair of hands.

A solid stand from a reputable name.
I first looked at Pit Bull because a buddy of mine suggested it when I first got my bike. I am glad I chose it because it feels sturdy and is easy to use. Just read the positioning tips and it's safe.

Great swing arm stand.
I bought this stand to replace a cheap stand I bought. This stand is sturdy and well made. Well worth the money.

This stand is extremely well made. The welds are perfect and the finish is beautiful. I know, I know, it's just a stand, but after seeing so much imported junk lately, it's refreshing to see an American made product that just screams durability & quality. Lifts my Bonneville with no problem and feels extremely stable while up there...and no more jacks in the way during oil and filter changes.
