I was hesitant to mention the HD stand for fear of being branded a heretic, but it IS the best sidestand ever.

Well, when you design something back in 1909 that works, why change? It is the best designed stand on a bike. One of the few items that really work well.

I'm sure I can remember from many years ago one of my bikes having a sidestand that operated a hydraulic actuator at the hinge point. The weight of the bike resting on the sidestand pushed the actuator in, which held the brakes on.

Love to all in sunny RSA.

Get me out of this rat race and let me retire - now would be good.

I've just merged the parking brake and side stand topics together as they have a lot in common.

As long as we are talking Parking Brakes......

I needed one more than any of you, with my trike.

I tried the reverse lever for a while too, but on a steep hill, the engine turned over slowly and in 2 hours, it rolled back 3 feet!

Here is a simple strap set up I used with pix, in case you missed this topic before in the other forum and need something in a hurry.

Guys

What I do if I have to park on a down hill is to shut the bike off with the side stand, make sure you are in first and allow the bike to roll ahead with the clutch released till it stops (normally 6-8 inches) then set her on the side stand. I have parked on some pretty steap hills and have never had my bike roll off the side stand.

If you want even more, carry a small velcro strap and clamp your front brake on with it. DO NOT USE REVERSE !!!

Have Wing Will Travel

Hi all,
Well the same folks that make my insta-trike kit, have now come up with a new sidestand for many bikes, including our beloved wings. It is pretty slick.

Click on their website, then click on The EASY ROLLER Side Stand Icon to see it.

http://www.tow-pacinc.com/

Of course I don't need a sidestand anymore and my zip-tie brake lever strap (that mounts perfectly on the brake fluid reservoir for storage) has not ever failed.

It's simple and cheap as it comes, even in matching black.
