Certainly most modern motorcycles come equipped with side stands (or kick stands) that prop the motorcycle up when parked by leaning the bike to one side. Side stands are generally found on bicycles, for example. Motorcycles are considerably heavier than bicycles, so side stands can really limit how you can service and maintain your motorcycle. Also, if you're using your motorcycle at the track, side stands just aren't going to cut it.
Rear stands like this Vortex rear motorcycle stand props the bike up from beneath the rear swingarm, and lifts up the rear wheel, supporting the motorcycle and giving you all the stability and flexibility you need to take care of your ride.
