Not sure if it is kosher to plug a product on this forum or not. Feel free to delete this post if I have crossed any boundaries and accept my apologies in advance. I have absolutely no financial interest in this company.

Anyhow, I have no space in my garage and I just bought a pair of their stands for my Tesi - and they work a dream - the bike can be pushed in any direction using only finger tip pressure by virtue of the clever wheels.

They work as advertised.

Very cool but nothing for the BMW R11S. I use Condors for the YB10 and the Beemer. YB10 is light enough to come off the cradle with little trouble. The R11S is a 500lb pig. The weight coupled with Telelever suspension makes using the Condor extremely difficult. After almost loosing the Beemer after pulling it off the Condor I decided to let the bike sit on the side stand (no center stands for Boxer Cups because of the belly pan).

Tirefriar.

I'm pretty sure these guys do a rear stand for all Beemers - they told me they had adaptors for every bike or will manufacture one to suit. I know, I'm starting to sound like a salesman, but the two guys that designed the stands and own the business were super keen and helpful.

Their front stand is universal, in that it just supports the tire/wheel, i.e. you roll the bike onto it before lifting. This means it is useless for any work requiring wheel removal or even weight off the front suspension.
So the front stand is really only good for maneuvering the bike in tight spaces.

The Tesi has a turning circle of a cruise liner - these stands have been a god send.

I wouldn't mind going for just the front wheel but it doesn't appear to hold the bike secure enough on its own. They sure would look cool holding up a Dieci over the Bimota mat.

For sure the front stand alone will NOT support the bike.

The whole point of those stands is the clever wheels which allow the bike to be pushed at 90 degrees,

To be honest Condor stand suck just because of the design of their cradle. If you want effortless front wheel chock then take a look and Wheel Dock. (https://wheeldock.com/collections/main)

I been using it for the last 12 years or so.

I agree about Condor. It always feels like you are going to loose the bike as it coming off the cradle. These were highly recommended by a specialty bike manufactuer (who shall remain nameless). Maybe they would work better if they were affixed to the floor but I don't want to drill anchor bolt holes in my garage floor. I checked out wheeldock and really like it. My concern is how long those pressure struts last. Does wheeldock hold the bike in upright position securely? One thing about Condor is when it locks the front wheel in, it's pretty much flip proof.

Well, as I mentioned before I been using it for the last 12 years or so and still same strut. And by the way if strut goes bad you can always buy a replacement for abut $5-$10. I even used it on the racetrack when I had my Triumph Daytona 600 without side stand.

My buddy just bought one of these for his R11S: https://www.baxleycompanies.com/sport-chock.html

Says that the rubber caps on the legs help the chock stay put during roll off. I'm going to check his out.
