Today marks milestone for me as the first Center Stand has been sold and is on the road to New York and a 5,000 round trip out of Texas. It's been a long, hard, frustrating road to get the center stand to where it is but I think this will work. "Inroads" (forum name) bought the first stand and came by my place to have me put it on. He had it really loaded as you can see in the pictures and I raised an eyebrow but it's his bike so we'll see how the stand works out. It will be a good litmus test for the stand. Anyway, he'll be posting to the board about his trip and the stand so I'll watch for his postings. I wish him well and I hope there are no problems.
