HiHi guys. Yesterday I got off the bike and the side stand failed to keep it up. The bike started to “fold” but I managed to get it before it hit the ground. Did some minor damage on the gear shifter. Worst thing is you cannot let the bike go if you’re in “a wrong place”. Anyways, check your side stand bolts now and then!!
same happened to me on first big trip . Luckily I noticed it as I put the bike on the stand . Don't like to think about it falling off into a fast left hander !
( as happened to me once on a Laverda 1200- Italains eh ? )
