I was in contact with them not too long ago- they said they currently have no US dealers, but are working towards finding one. They could not give me a timeline. I inquired about ordering one direct, the shipping was significantly more than the cost of the stand. I'd like to have one too!

If you buy from emoto - be parpare to wait about 45 days and with shipping, it will cost a bit more than $300 USD.

For me it was worth it - It's a great product.

I'm curious which stand you are looking into, the center stand?

In a week or two I should have my prototype completed which I will offer up here to see if there is interest in purchasing. What I have is a stand which will hold up the rear of the bike to allow servicing of everything from the swingarm pivot back. The swing arm will not be loaded at all andyou will be able to remove the swingarm if you want. The stand also will allow you to access the front end of the bike to facilitate removing everything down to the steering head. I will be posting this up soon in prototype form to see what you think, so maybe it will fit your needs.

What was that song they did? "When the whip comes down"? "My baby takes the mornin train"? What ever, I hope the stands are better than the music...

That's exactly what I want!

My options are the abba stand, or rearsets with pibul jack stands--However with the weight of the bike being supported on the rearsets I'd still need a front tree stand to work on the forks, etc, so a stand that allows you to pivot the bike like the abba stand is ideal--Plus I don't really want rearstes for position (i think the stock setup is perfect for me), i just need fixed pegs :
