Parking the F4

MV owners..do you use a wheel chock like baxley's sport chock or the rear wheel stand?

The chock seems like the easiest and friendliest to use and you don't have to worry about the rear hub or lifting the bike in the air.

However I was wondering if front tires get an "indent" based on the grips the chock has if it hasn't been used often.

Thoughts?

I've used the Baxley chock for 2 of my bikes, never had any deformed-tire issues from using them. The only difficulty I've had is when I come off of the track and ride the bike directly into the Baxley stand while the front tire is still hot.....and then when it comes time to pull the bike out of the stand, the stand has now glued itself to my cool tire. Other than that .... no problems at all. It is much more convenient than using the rear stand for parking purposes.

+1, but it only happens on the track. The Baxley is AWESOME! You can put the bike in the back of the truck with two tiedowns and no canyon dancer.

I have Baxley Sport Chocks for all of my bikes. The bikes are very stable in a chock and take up less room in the garage sitting straight up in the chock vs. leaning on a side stand. Have never had a problem with tire issues due to the chock. Also have one Condor chock, but prefer the Baxley.

Kick-stand during the week and the rear stand for the weekends (if it's going to be sitting for more than a day)
