Any Canadians use the Princess Auto Bike Stand?

Looking for a bike stand and came across this one on Princess Auto:

http://www.princessauto.com/pal/Moto...tand/8321440.p

Anybody here used one?

For you Americans I'm guessing Princess Auto is kind of the Canadian equivalent of Harbour Freight. Cheap tools but the quality is questionable.

I never thought to check but it would appear that you're right and that the Harbour Freight one is identical to the one sold at Princess Auto up here north of the border.

I'll pick one up and give it shot. Just have to wait for the spools to come in that I ordered from ebay.

P.S. Even us Canadians don't admit to banging chicks from Calgary.

And before anybody from Calgary gets their panties in a twist it's a joke :-)

If you want an incredible stand, spend a wee bit more and get an Abba Stand.

Blue Streak Racing is the exclusive supplier in North America.

It is so solid you could bang the chick from Calgary while the bike is on the stand and not have any problems at all (with the chick or the bike). If banging chicks from Calgary is your thing

Wow, that Abba stand is sweet! I'm just about to buy a stand and have never heard of that one before. I think I'll buy an Abba, now ;D

You won't regret it. Best motorcycle stand I have ever used. The bike is solid beyond belief when it is on the stand.

I have the H-F one here in BC, and the T-Rex stand in AZ. The T-Rex gives me a bit more "piece-of-mind".
