Rear Stand

It doesn't help you much, but physical size and strength really does  
help. The right stand is actually fairly easy to balance the bike one  
handed while inserting the stand - once the spools are engaged the  
bike won't fall. Slipping, however does have consequences. Easier but  
more expensive are the ride-up wheel chocks that hold the front wheel  
tightly without tiedowns. Then use the rearstand as you normally would.
