HB vs. SW Motech centerstand...does the HB drag?
I've had a V Strom before and I had the SW Motech stand on it. I liked the stand because when I was out riding hard, even with the pegs dragging, it wouldn't drag. Which is why I didn't buy the Suzuki stand. However, since I have been absent from the Strom world, Hepco and Becker has a stand. How does their stand compare? Does it drag? Is it more stable than the Motech?
I have the H-B and like it. No complaints. Never touched in the corners and only bottoms out when the skid plate does.

+1 on the HB. It's supposedly very much like the Motech. I've had it bottom out once, but never scraped, and I live in the Santa Cruz Mountains (lots of twisties, some with major dips @ apex). Scared the crap out of me when it bottomed out, though...
