I have both and like the PMB better. No external spring to break (I did have a TT spring break) and they sent me one for free.

I like the way the PMB tucks up behind the sidepanel and is out of the way.

Just put a TT on last night, it fit great! Looks good and now I can take a break and get away from my bike. Desert doesn't offer many kickstands!

PMB hands down, NO SPRING. My Trail Tech broke on the trail and started flapin in the wind! Not very safe riding with a kick stand down, had to commendear some wire off a nearby fence to keep it up. If you do get a Trail tech (but dont) I put a velcro strap on the swing arm just in case it did it again.

PMB. It tucks up and out of the way. Use it in Baja and no problems at all. Not familiar with the TT.

I've had a Trailtech for a couple of years. It works fine for the $. It does seem to make the bike lean over a bit more that I would like. The PMB one looks nicer and is probably the better choice if $ isn't the deciding factor. You get what you pay for.

I typically think kickstands look pretty gay (no offense). However, my buddy just put a PMB on his R and it took me a minute before I realized he even had one on his bike. It tucks behind the side plate and almost looks like part of the sub frame. A once long time hater of the kick stand, I now want one for my R. Go with the PMB! But dang they are expensive!:applause:

UteM, not gay in baja after 100mi and nowhere to prop up the bike but a pucker bush. I just take it off when I am around here.
