I bought this because I was sick of having to find a tree to lean my KX500 on every time I had to stop and go back for my wife or kid. I love this thing. It is so nice not having to look for a triangle stand or a tie strap to or a tree to lean on. My only knock on it is that it doesn't tuck away as nicely as I would like and kind of extends out past the swingarm. I'm not sure how much could be done with that. I am very happy with this product and I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again for to satisfy the same need.
