I back my riding mower up to it and use a ratchet strap from the barbell rod for the bags to the hitch hole on the mower.

A friend has some pitbull stands that I can borrow, but I'd need to run a 3/4" steel rod through the centered hole in the rear rim for the jack to catch. The front stand just catches the bottom of the fork tubes. It'll work, but kind of a PITA.
This is exactly how I do it, less cumbersome than it sounds, but then again I own the stands so there's nothing to borrow. If I didn't already have them (from a previous bike), I'd probably go with harlo's method. That's pretty slick!

My bike is usually on the table lift when I remove the front wheel. I use a ratchet strap from the rear rack down to the table to hold the front end up. If it's not on the table for some reason, I'll use an anchor in the floor.

I use this steel tube with welded plates on both ends to support the bike on center stand. I left my bike support like this for one week last year. This picture was taken a month ago when I was doing my rims:

So there is more than one way to skin a cat. I have exposed rafters with eye bolts. Ratchet straps to balance the bike on the center stand. Lets you get to both ends at once. Gee, sky hooks seem like a real good idea.

For the sake of completeness, I thought I'd resurrect the thread to throw up a recent pic. A couple eye bolts in the rafters and a 20' ratchet strap did the trick. I wrapped the strap around the triple clamp and ran the ratchet until the rear tire touched. I pulled the tire and stacked some 2x4's and 1/2" plate under the forks for piece of mind as I left it overnight. Piece of cake!
