i've never seen a jack like that used without a lift table before. everyone that i know that has one uses it on the lift. and i would be very nervous to try lifting a bike up high enough to do any kind of maintenance on just the center jack.
you are going to get a ton of opinions, but one thing that you will hear a lot more than anything else is to get either a j&s or a pitbull. are they expensive? you bet. are they worth it? you bet. either one is very easy to load your bike on by yourself.
i had a jack that i got from pep boys on sale (think it was a torin brand). that thing made me nervous as hell. i used it for a couple of years, but not as often as i would have liked. sometimes i would just do the job without it because it made me that nervous. even strapped down. gave it away, and got a j&s. i'm not nervous about it anymore and use it quite often.
I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
