I use a motorcycle jack anytime I need the bike to be vertical or off the ground.

Very dangerous compared to a bike stand. I have heard of some nightmares if them falling off bike jacks.
In-fact mine almost came off mine today!! actually the truth. I was just to lazy to get the stand out. I caught it half way over and man was that heavy to get back upright.
So be safe and very careful.

My jack has a metal support that you can swing into place, so the bike sits on the same rails that are used to raise it, but those rails then sit on a metal support that relieves pressure from the hydraulic cylinder and trues up the rails. When it is JUST on the hydraulic cylinder, you are right, its not so steady and it makes me pucker up a bit.
