    I have them... They are good quality, I used the front for racing last year. THe rear I use for the Aprilia. I think that Aprilia actually buys them and puts their name on them then marks them up about 200%.

    Great stand. I have the front headstock style stand (recommended!!!!!). Beefy tubing, good quality and not overpriced like Pitbull.

    Ya think someone could do a quick review on those and post them up in the reviews area. Then i can find the post easier when I have the cash for new stands

    I couldn't find how to post a review in the "REVIEW" area, so I'll put my opinion here:

    I purchased the Handy Industries front and rear stands for my ZX9R. Both stands were $99 total plus $16 for shipping, so the price was right.
    I am very happy with the quality. I chose the bobbin (spool) option for the rear stand. This required me to purchase a set of bobbins, but I figured this approach was more stable than using the rubber "L" bracket option. I was worried that if I had any chain oil under the swingarms, the "L" bracket may possibly slip/slide if my kids start climbing on the bike. I am not sure if this is a problem, but the bobbin is definately rock solid stable. The front stand has no lateral bracing, so is has a very small amount of wobble if you are sitting on the bike with the front off the ground and you shake the bike. Not enough to worry about, but not as rock solid as the rear stand. I can easily raise the front/rear of the bike by myself without it getting shaky. I recommend them.
    The web site for Handy Industries is: www.handyindustries.com/webdeals.asp
    The bobbins (spools) I purchased were $16 plus about $6 for shipping. I purchased them from www.motorcycleradar.com The are good quality and look nice. They are made in Massachusetts for those of you who want to buy local.

    There is a whole dealer/vendor/product reviews section in the forum.

    OK wise guy, you made your point. I was trying to figure out a way to put it under the "Reviews" area...never thought to put it under the Dealer/Vendor area.

    I'll put my response there just for the record
