I got MX EZ up by Team Hawg Racing: http://www.teamhawgracing.com/ they retail for about $199. Very sturdy, high lift and you can strap the bike to the stand for extra stability. The only thing I don't like about it is that it's very heavy. It's gotta weigh like 50 lbs ! Sometimes I just want to lift my bike for a second or two and it feels like a pain dragging that heavy stand out. I'm thinking of installing wheels on it for more mobility around the garage. I'm not sure if that will effect the stability though. Or, maybe I'll get a second smaller stand for quick jobs around the garage.

As far as jacks/stands go I purchased the Larin's a year ago and i love it. 1500lb capacity has casters so no lifting, and it works great with my bikes and my daughters quad.

I got a larin stand that looked similar to what the previous post showed. I got it from PEP BOYS and it had a rebate on it. Total cost was about 50 bucks.

If you look on ebay, type in motorcycle jack, there are several different off brands of the Larin's they go for around 50.00-59.00. Just another route for you.

I had one similar to this and i didn't care for it. It wasn't stable enough. When i would take either the front or rear wheel off it would teader back and forth or try to tip over (not good :thumbsup: ).
