Thumbs down Moto GP bike stands

I bought these just last fall. All I have done is use them this winter, My bike just sat on them. I didn't sit on the bike, I didn't start her up. Well pictures are worth a 1000 words.





I would not recommend these to anyone.

Well that sucks, Indy. I have some pretty inexpensive stands, too. Similar, but they haven't bent like that (yet). Where the wheels attach on mine aren't boxed... there is just a steel sleeve welded on where the axle fits through.
That looks pretty bad...
Good head's up, though.

I might call the company, but think its alittle bit too late to call the CC company.
