I recall reading that the BMW has a safety switch that will not allow the stand to go down while moving. I don't know if it can be operated manually or not. If they put something like this on the Goldwing, it would be nice if it could be operated manually as well.

I would think that pnuematic with alock out might work...

There is at least one aftermarket product that does this. I think it is called Landing Gear. I have only seen it once. An older rider had it on his wing at the local mall bike show. When the bike is stopped or at extremely slow (sub-parking lot speeds) two arms with wheels on them descend from the side bags and keep the bike upright. Main downside is that it takes up most of the side bags.

Thanks Redwing,

That is close to what I have seen, but the guy I saw had modified his to actually fit into the bags and be invisible when not in use.

An electric centre stand would certainly be appreciated by me. I am basically of the road for the next 3 weeks as I have an injured leg (which I injured putting my bike on the centre stand) and am unable to put the bike on the centre stand

Boy...Andrew, do I ever agree with you. This past weekend I was out in front of a restaurant with slightly uneven ground off Pacific Coast Hwy. with sand, dirt and gravel and I was finding it hard to engage the center stand. Using my legs instead of my back, the center stand finally engaged, at the expense of tearing the calf muscle of my right leg. I actually felt the muscle rip, something like a rubber band. The electrical shock just about sent me to the ground. It's day three now and I'm still walking with a huge limp. All of this because I wouldn't let the Mexican Valet park my Goldwing in his pavement parking lot.

Oh, Mr. RedWinger, we're discussing center stands on our motorcycles, not your personal "after market" equipment.

the electric -hydro stand on the bmw k1200lt is outstanding, and makes life a great deal easier, as we all get older,you just sit astide it 2up, fully loaded,press the button, and up she goes, nice and slowly onto the stand. it would be a great asset to the wing,and in my view would make it more attractive to future buyers.
