I've used two: one a fancy little carbonfiber one from a fancy big motorcycle outfitting store (which I shall leave unnamed) and one a cheap thick plastic "Bigfoot" from a Honda shop...... the carbonfiber special cracked under the weight of my packed Wing, but the cheap plastic one just bends and warps..... every time I use it, I put the warped side up! Works like a charm!
I've got the plastic big foot as well but have never needed to use it with the chrome kickstand boot on. Just be sure to grind off the heel bar first.

I bought 4 of the stainless steel 4"x4" metal caps for electrical junction boxes. I keep them in the pouch on the backrest. If I forget one, they are cheap ... about $.50 a piece. I've used them more in campgrounds and cemeteries than gravel. They are shiny so if they sink it's easy to see them in the muck.

Every day I get a free ride around the sun.

all great ideas guys and gals, but this is really feedback for Mother Honda to read, so yes, it would be good if She would pay attention and re design the side stands to give a bigger footprint with more stability for the Bikes.

I too use an aftermarket plate under the side stand on soft ground, but we shouldn't have to risk Benastro's experience, this should be addressed by the design wizards at Honda, it ain't exactly rocket science for them surely!!!

(By the way, for those with the plates with string on them, just buy a neat little fuel cap bag, available cheaply and you can lower and raise the plate in safety, sitting on the bike. )

Rivco makes a nice piece that slides on has one screw to hold it on.

I got one and works great didn't have to do anything but slide it on.

28.00 didn't think that was to bad for a price.

This is the web page; http://saturn.dnsprotect.com/~rivcop...356&page=2

I bought that, the kickstand pad from Rivco. Very nice - problem is it scrapes when I take a sharp left turn... *groan*

Not a bad price in the USA but when you have to pay $61 postage to the UK it takes the shine off any one know of a stockest in the UK
