Bike Grab

My beloved Ninja doesn't come with a centre stand option, and with the pre-exhaust chamber mounted beneath the bike my old strategy of jacking up the bike with a car jack for chain maintenance no longer works.

For the last year or so I've been doing the old "hold the bike upright with one foot on the brake to stop it rolling away while trying to hold the race stand in place to lift up the back wheel" routine.  This works, kinda, but I've been convinced for a little while now that one of these days I'm going to drop the ninja, probably onto my own foot.  This, not being my goal, I have decided to fix before it happens.
