I use the same method, but screw the timber "posts" to a board to improve stability. Has done me well for eight years.

I use a Pitbull with my K1200R and it works fine.

I bought a Chinese 'pitbull' for about $60.

But both in my view suffer the same bad design in that they use a fitting either side which the fork tubes rest on. When you are working on the bike the forks could move off the supports.

The solution is simple: Buy cheap Chinese, a length of M10 screwed rod and some nuts. Once the rod is pushed through the forks and eyes on the stand it's not going to go anywhere. I've also found my stand can be reversed, which is great for access to the rads and everything up front.
