    I'm seeking assistance from a fellow rider who is experienced in the use of a rear stand to spare 30 minutes to give me a few tips and especially stand next to my bike while I practice getting it up and down using my new Kaneg rear stand. It has casters on it so I can swing my bike around inside my garage to ride out and down my sloping driveway.

    I need someone to stand next to the bars ready to catch my SV650 should I make an error in getting it on and off the stand. I know practice makes perfect but if I make an error on the initial attempt then I am certain to end up with my recently purchased SV sideways and dinged on the floor. There seems little margin for error when you are at the rear of the bike and you need to catch it in the case of a numpty error.

    I live in the North East suburbs in Melbourne and can supply suitable beverages as a reward for your participation in this project following the successful launch, roller skating and return to earth of said Suzuki.

    Please send me a PM if you can help me out with a steely eye and a steady hand.
