Warning if you own an MV Augusta F3/B3

Easy to use
Doesn't work with the new MV B3/F3
I've had mine for a few years and its been great but I recently bought an MV Brutale 800 so I bought the Brutale fitting kit for it but due to the high pivot point of the swing arm the Abba Stand doesn't lift the rear wheel off the floor, It is stable on the stand with it supporting the majority of the weight its just an inch too short to lift the wheel. Got around the problem by putting the stand onto a paving slab making it high enough to lift the wheel off the floor. Still a great stand just a bit more faffing around to do before using it, so i'm giving it a 3 for performance for that reason

All the stand you'll ever need.(with the addition of a few accessories)

Sturdily made, easy single handed use, takes up very little storage space.
A bit more expensive than the others.
Solidly made and easy to use single handed while the bikes on its sidestand with no risk of it topling over. Well worth the premium over the other paddock stands, as it will fit any bike you're ever likely to get (with the correct fitting kit) as well as a number of other accessories to extend its use. Useful for carrying out any job on your pride and joy secure in the knowledge it can't fall over.

The only bike stand you'll ever need.

Easy to use on your own, can lift both wheels off the ground unloading the suspension, well built heavy duty, when you change bike you just need to purchase the swing arm adaptors.
Not really a con just a tip, when you locate the left side of the stand into the swing arm hole, lean across the bike and hold it in place while you slide on and tighten up the other side otherwise it can slip out and scratch the frame.
I've dropped a few bikes in the past by precariously balancing the bike upright with one hand while trying to locate the paddock stand into the correct position with the other, and while I could do it, it always made me a little nervous about dropping my pride and joy on the garage floor, not to mention putting my back out trying to pick it up after it fell over!
But with the Abba stand there are none of these worries, easy to use on your own and very stable once its up off the ground. To get both wheels off the ground either lift the front wheel up and slide a chock of wood under the sump or if you have a ground anchor then push the back wheel down a bit and strap it to the anchor.
