I am surprised to say the least that Honda has yet to make some specific changes to the extremely small kickstand that is responsible for keep the 1800 Wing upright. The foot of the stand is dangerous in that it quickly drills its way into any porous surface and then goes the Wing. If you carry along a pad to allow prevent the stand from digging into whatever surface you are parking on, you have to be a good shot to position the pad. Furthermore, if you have floor boards, you have to raise the board to access the very small stand. With the superb Wing that the guys turn out in Ohio, surely there is a solution to the size, access, stability and appearnce that they can make to this great machine. There's not really an OEM stand that works with the floorboards. The stand will not position properly when not in use-the floor boards prevent the proper position and, as a result, when you are cornering, the stand drags.
