I use the crap out of mine. As you said, at oil change time. It makes it easier to check the rear tire pressure when its on the stand, too. No more rolling it until the nozzle can be seen. Just put it on the stand and spin the wheel.
I also change my own tires and lube the drive shaft/final drive splines. The center stand is a MUST then. But to drop the rear wheel you've got to put several inches of flat board under the stand to raise it up enough for the wheel to come all the way off.
I don't know why Kawasaki didn't put one on the Vulcan S, too. It would make maintenance so much easier for those guys if they had one.
