Q How can I safely use a paddock stand on my own?
Check the stand is pivoting correctly I have just bought a paddock stand for my Honda NC750X but my wife isn’t confident about holding the bike upright for me to use the paddock stand. Do you have a method? Bryan Peters, email
Answered by Tony Hoare, MCN I would use a wheel grab that will support the bike by the front wheel. With the bike upright, you’ll have the ideal platform for using the paddock stand. When you operate the stand make sure it is pivoting correctly and rolling on its wheels. Here’s where to find details of the wheel grab… http:// www.on-bike.com/motorcycle-wheelchock-stand-bike-grab
