I grabbed one of these off eBay last Spring. Installed it and used it all season long. We have seasons where I live. Installation was straight forward and it works great. I use it as my primary stand as I like the look it gives the bike when parked. It's saves me space in the garage as the bike is not leaning over. And maintenance is way easier.
Standing the bike comes with a learning curve. I grab the frame below the seat with one hand, the other on the bars and gently lift and rock it onto the stand. You'll never be able to stand the bike while straddling it. So there is an opportunity to drop it. I'm very happy with mine, glad I bought it.
