A couple of reasons. A.) The solenoid is the lock tang (think electric door lock on a car), and 2.) Don't want to lock the sidestand (or centerstand) if its not down.

You can try to idiot proof anything and just when you think you've succeeded along comes a better(?) idiot and you start over.

Agreed, but just because a good enough thief can steal your car no matter what you do to prevent it, doesn't mean you should leave the windows down and the key in the ignition.

Where does it stop?

I've even seen my neighbour clean grass from under her lawnmower, engine running and holding the safety bar down.

You can't fix stupid, you can only hope that you're not there when the inevitable happens.

First of all, I agree, the owner should not have allowed kids near the bike. If I had a really nice bike, Id be really upset to find kids playing on it. And just where were these kids parents?

As for the lawnmower, I have removed the safety bar from many lawn mowers. Lawn mowers did not have this nuisance device when I was younger. It is not necessary IF you know how to operate a lawn mower. Many times I have spotted something in front of the mower I needed to remove before I ran over it, and that meant restarting the engine. I have also jumpered the seat shut off switch on riding mowers for the same reason, to avoid having to restart the engine everytime I needed to jump off and pick something up.


As for "where does it stop", I don't think it does. Manufacturers just keep coming up with crazier and crazier "safety" devices.

A spring loaded tang that automatically locks when the stand is down,only being "released" by a cable pull (or solenoid) and resets the tang when in the UP position,is what i was thinking.
No way "lock" the stand until it "self locks" when folded down.

Which may also, help prevent theft of said motorcycle!!!

Yea,that's it! When the "ignition key" is turned to the "on" position,the lock would be,could be, released!

This is a pretty good idea. I like the way a Harley side stand locks in place when the bike is leaned over on it. I would not want an electric solenoid lock on either but a pull release of some kind on the center stand would be good.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

Stupid Idea! No types of electrical locks or anything to do with a key!

First I often push my bikes off to side and don't have my key handy, so why should I have to go in house to get one, or worse drive 10 miles to get the key at the house just because I want to roll a bike 30 feet over at the shop! Or what if I can't find my key, what then leave my drive blocked for a few days while I look for it? I have more than 1 or 2 bikes and I don't always carry every key to every bike I have!
Some I don't ride often have a dead battery once in a while, turning on the key would do nothing so what then if the stand is locked?? Can't even roll the bike over to charge the battery! Might have to roll it around to be able to get to it for a jump from a car, nope can't do that either if stand locked.
Gee just think, stuck parked in odd spot with dead battery on a trip, stand locked, no way to roll bike and not able to get a car up to it where parked to give it a jump. Great!
Stupid Idea!


What would be next, anti slip paint for car hoods and roofs so kids don't fall off when using the windshield as a sliding board? Yes I seen that also!
