Very nice.

I've seen MC lifts at Sam's Club for $99 and have thought about getting one for awhile. I'm just not sure I'd use it all that much.

Very cool - are there any lifts out there that will hold the bike while the forks are being changed?

I have a stand that goes into the bottom of the steering head. As long as you are only removing the forks and not the triple clamps, these work very nicely. If you need to completely remove the front end (clamps and all), it is best to have a stand with a wheel chock. Put the bike in backwards, clamp the rear wheel, and strap the rear of the bike to the lift. You can then use a small jack under the motor to raise the front of the bike. Just be sure everything is secure.

I've done this when I had to have my forks redone.
