I would think it would be beneficial to have some sort of parking brake (other thanleaving the bike in gear). Living in mountainous terrain, often level parking spots are rare. It would also be nice to leave the bike running while on a slope without worrying about it rolling forward and tipping over.

2004 Candy Red GL1800
2004 Honda XR400 (dirtbike)
1999 Kawasaki Concours
1986 Yamaha Virago 1100


If I had known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself... damn dirt bikes.

maybe instead of a parking brake as previously suggested ,,How about a lock out side stand ?When the side stand is on you need to hit a button to release it ,,that way the bike will not fall over if it moves slightly forward ,,simple solonoid type device would do the job ..Ciaran

I am unsure of how the 1800s are but my 1500 is very lacking. I wish the side stands were much more stable. I put mine in reverse when parked, but this shouldn't be necessary.

The 1800 are worse than the 1500 ,because they are lighter ,they don't dig into the ground as much ,so it is very easy for them to roll off the stand ,,First day I had the 1800 I parked in the exact spot where I always parked my 1500 ,,I got of the bike and it rolled forward off the stand ,much to my embarassment.....Ciaran

In which case, future Wings could definately benifit from improvement either with lock out stand or, at least an improved stand.

Parking brake would be good. Some of the big scooter type bikes already have this.

The 1500 has a parking brake, just pull up the reverse lever, doesn't the 1800 work like that?

Yes ,,except it is a button ,,But it is not recommended ,,as it can cause the reverse pin to break and it would end up costing a lot of money to repair ,,I have never heard of it doing any damage yet ,,but I am sure someone will come along and tell us it happened to them ...cheers axe oops wexman

Good idea, My st1100 had one fitted, I think it came from a quad bike. when you pulled the hand bake lever in you engage the catch, on pulling he lever back in the catch springs back off. Worked well for me.
