    I had a bit of a Brown Trouser Moment with mine...

    Collected a Big Blue from the ever-helpful David at Quasar, an hour or so of bolting stuff together with my teenage daughter (motorbikes - a great bonding experience!) and a sharp intake of breath later!

    I'd be interested to see a video (or time lapse photos) of the transition from

    On Side Stand

    to

    Up in the air.

    And reverse.

    Richard Browne what a great piece of kit that is, I bet you was nervous as hell when it started to lift the beast and still when it was in the air. Makes life much easier now tho pal . Great purchase .
