2012 Ultimate MotorCycling QuickShift Review

Rated for up to 3000 pounds, the Condor Pit-Stop/Trailer-Stop stand is over-engineered for any motorcycle it needs to hold, and yet it only weighs 30 pounds. Made from high-grade aluminum, it is clearly a high-quality piece of equipment.

A T-bar across the front section of the frame prevents the motorcycle from leaning and rubberized undersides stops sideslipping, even on a metal truck bed. A sturdy upright with wheel receiver creates a firm buffer for the tire.

The Pit-Stop’s fully adjustable bottom-cradle takes any size of tire up to 22 inches, and it works on front or rear wheels. Rotating 90 degrees into place, it holds the motorcycle securely upright, even before any straps are attached. It holds a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide in place without a problem, although a couple of steps run-up are required to rotate the cradle over-center and into place.

Once loaded, it is easy for one person to strap the machine down. Pulling it out of the stand again requires a little momentum. Rocking forward first, and then positively backward, pulls the bike easily from the Condor stand; it is genuinely a one-person affair.

The rubberized stabilizing legs hold the Condor in place, so it is unnecessary to bolt it down and drill into the truck-bed. Because it is light, the Pit-Stop can be carried easily, and it kept a bagger upright so we could clean the awkward lower parts at the rear.

Motorcycle transportation is also improved. It took two seconds to put the Condor in the back of the truck and holds the bike securely enough that only two straps are required.

Thanks to the security of the Condor’s cradle and receiver, we avoid over-tightening the straps and putting undue load on the suspension. Attaching the tie-downs alone is stress-free, as there is no concern that the bike can tip over; releasing the tie-downs one at a time is equally easy.

The stand works in trailers with an adaptor kit so it will mount to the floor; if your trailer has an E-track system, Condor has a universal kit for that.

Condor’s Pit-Stop/Trailer-Stop stand is one of those products that you don’t realize how useful it will be until you have one. It is light enough to move around easily, and it can be folded up for wall storage.

The Condor Pit-Stop Trailer-Stop Wheel Chock retails for $259.75. For additional information, click here.
