Rothewald front wheel motorcycle stand:
The stand rocker (59.95 euros) from the current Detlev Louis range accepts front wheels between 17 and 21 inches (tire width 90 to 130 millimeters). The stability is still acceptable. But what is annoying: During the initial assembly, the somewhat carelessly coated steel pipes have to be screwed under tension, and all movable ones
Parts have a lot of play overall.

Hein Gericke Street Triple access ramp:
There is probably no more compact way to fold a ramp. The 6.5 kilo aluminum construction measures almost two meters at full length, but only 71 cm when folded twice. A tension belt with a hook prevents it from slipping. The workmanship is solid, the price of 79.95 euros fits. Attention: The ramp can be loaded with a maximum of 250 kg.

The 2.16 meter long aluminum ramp can be loaded with 340 kilos and can be folded down to a short 1.14 meters for transport. With three teeth, it can also be placed on trailers with stand rails. A tension belt to secure the ramp is included. Only the big play in the hinged joint bothers.

Touratech ratchet lashing strap:
With a length of around three meters, the Touratech ratchet strap (14.90 euros) is ideal for transporting motorcycles. The practical Velcro end for neat storage when not in use is also appealing. What I don’t like: no information on the load capacity and no reference to the test standard.

Tighten carefully so as not to risk a bent handlebar.

Bike-Tower assembly stand:
The central stand from Bike-Tower is primarily intended for service and maintenance work, but Aleksander Bilcar also wanted to offer a solution for motorcycle transport with its construction. If the bike tower is in a stable position (transporter or trailer without rails), the lift height can be adjusted so that the wheels are still in contact with the ground. This allows the motorcycle to be unhitched without the chassis being compressed. Price including model-specific support plate 359 euros.

Racefoxx rear tension belt:
At first glance the cheap alternative to Acebikes’ Tyrefix. However, the Racefoxx tensioner (19.90 euros) still lacks the necessary ratchet straps. If you add this, the alternative is suddenly no longer that cheap.
Unlike the Tyrefix, the nylon fabric is attached to the bike with Velcro. However, there is no non-slip contact surface for the tire.

Acebikes Tyrefix:
Modern bikes hardly offer any options for solidly securing the rear end. The Tyrefix from Acebikes (68 euros) offers the perfect solution: a non-slip pad for the tire that is tensioned to the front with two sturdy ratchet straps. If the front wheel is in a seesaw, as is the case here, the motorcycle cannot be made ready for transport faster and more effectively.

Hein Gericke brake lock:
It’s always the little things that decisively improve transport from A to B. A particularly effective trick: blocking the front brake.
So the motorcycle stands really bombproof on the spot after it has been properly tensioned. Small problem with this two-part brake lock, which is available from Hein Gericke for 6.95 euros: the rubber tab can be pulled out of the groove on some bikes by the restoring force of the lever.
