Re: Side Stand
No Dan, the sidestand does kick back easy, and a lot of new folks drop the bike that way. Always park in gear, always try to park nose uphill rather than down hill.
When I park and put my stand down, I leave it in gear, turn the engine off and let go of the clutch and roll the bike forward the little bit it wants to go and then make sure my stand is all the way forward. If you do this you won't have a problem with the kickstand, and I've never had a problem with the kickstand not staying where it should.
Alright Already, Lets Ride!!
