The sue happy people that injure themselves due to their own stupidity have forced manufacturers to add safety devices.
Good example: Winnebago was sued because a man purchased a new RV while on the highway he engaged the cruise control got up from the drivers seat went in the back and made a cup of coffee, consequently the RV crashed. He sued received several million and a new RV all because Winnebago didn't have in the owners manual the crusie control does not steer the vehicle and not to leave the drivers seat.

Unfortunately everything can't be made fool proof. Someone shouldn't have been pushing on the motorcycle to begin with. That but had more to do with parental training than anything else.

Yep,i fully agree! If i kocked a bike over when i was a kid i would of had the crap slapped out of ME if the bike didn't kill me first.We learned purdy quick,only took once and sometimes didn't even have to ask,you just knew!NOT like today for sure.
ALOT of kids nowadays seem to push it over the limit because they know the parents will more than likely stick up for THEM rather than punishment.That said,it is still very painful to watch a small kid knock a large bike over and hope he isn't under it.

I just think a very simple little pull-catch tang could prevent a major lawsuit,"maybe" caused by unresponsible parenting,and the KID again,suffers the most.

I too like the way a Harley side stand locks in place. Honda should have done the same on the GW. Feral children? Not much you can do about them.

There is birth control ... but you have to get the breeders to use it.

I am pretty sure my old '82 KZ1100 had a center stand lock. Come to think of it, the frame is still rotting away in my back yard.

Just carry around one of these.


Has it's own lock.

That's a fabricated story that keeps making the rounds. There's no record of it ever happening.

Why not use that steering lock for car between center stand and front crash bar.I always do that when i work on bike because it's pretty easy to get the bike down the central stand.
