Center stand?

I just installed air ride on my 16 road glide. What center stand is everyone using. It sits pretty upright when fully aired out. I would just like a little reassurance. Thanks.

Speed by design makes a good one.

MRI is what i used on a few of my bikes and i liked it, but the speed by design mentioned above is also a killer unit. I like that when the speed by design center stand is lowered it cuts the power to fuel pump. This ensures that you cant ride off with stand lowered witch i have seen done many times.

I'm using the Harley Davidson accessory center stand. I like it because the height is adjustable. It is the same stand whether the Viking is lowered or stock height.

Several will swear by the Wheel Dock. It is a good stand. But be sure of the height you need. They aren't adjustable. Get the wrong size, and you will be exchanging it for a different size until you get it correct. Then you can't adjust it for a different heit.

I use the Wheel Dock and am very pleased with the quality and their customer service. You will not be disappointed.

I use the EZ up center stand, once I got one never realized how helpful it was for storing and maintenance on the bike.

I've had 5 of the RIVCO Centerstands - VERY EASY to step into and raise. I had a HD centerstand about 6 years ago and its difficult to get up and off/down. Sadly, I just now ran into problems with my current RIVCO. I extended the adjustable feet to raise it so I can get the rear tire off the ground about an inch - but - the stand will not activate now -- I can stand into the lever and the legs just hit the pavement - none of my substantial weight will bring the bike up - I'm trying to get to their Support but so far no joy.
