i preffer the old rear.
yes, it takes up more room, but its much easier to mount, IMO.
Im with you on the much easier to mount. That being said I actually bought one of those forward armed rear stands and wound up selling it on a local board to someone who kept his bike inside his apartment and found that stand useful for that because it takes up less room. I had 2 issues with it.

1. Kinda pain in the ass to use compared to the normal rear stand as you point out.

2. I keep my bike stored on my HANDY lift in my basement and that forward arm version's arm is to wide to work on the lift.

So I sold it.

That front stand is da bomb though.

I've had that same rear stand for a year or two. Makes a 1 man trackday much easier comin off the track. Also takes up a lot less room in the garage and tire changes are easier. CRF keep practicin though :D Bigger bobbins help.

I've got the rear stand and it works great! I keep my bike in a parking garage (living in manhattan...) and it definitely keeps the handle out of the way, but if it comes down to it and you need to get under the bike better you can always turn the stand around and use it like the old rear stand (handle out the back). pretty helpful, I want that front stand though
