Uplifting Experience

I've had my new Versys for about two weeks and was looking at some of the maintenance I want to do.

One issue I have is how do you lift the bike for things like oil changes, chain maintenance, etc? Looking under the bike there doesn't seem to be a good flat surface that will allow me to use my bike lift. It's all exhaust headers and mufflers.

So what do you use to lift and/or hold up your Versys while you perform maintenance?

Thanks

Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.

The Harbor Freight ones are cheaper, they're cheaper looking as well.
If you don't want to impress anyone with the quality of your stands (and the welds that look like they were squeezed out of a toothpaste tube) then I recommend HF.
