Center stand LOCK

Ten years ago my wife and i watched a smal girl climb onto a goldwing at a bike show and her older brother got behind the bike and was trying to push her while the bike was on the center stand.Well,he pushed alright! Enough to shove the bike forward and it fell over.THANK GOD, the third child had just walked away from the bike or he might have been pinned underneath it. Luckily nobody got hurt other than a freak out crowd viewing.

We were too far away to stop it from happening,and i told ALL the staff running the show,they need to tell the owners to at least,put the bikes in gear and/or chalk the rear tires.


At that point i started thinking.All HONDA would have to do is put a small cable pull lock/stop on the frame near the center stand to lock it from folding. I think it would be a great safety devise on ALL motorcyles with a center stand.

On a perfect planet....the parents would actually WATCH their children and maybe,MAYBE not let them climb on the bikes,but we all know how that goes too.

Just a thought.

The only place mine is on the center stand is in the garage. Although, It is a good idea.

Happy Trails

You would need to chock the front wheel if the bike is on its center stand to stop it moving off. The lock release idea would be good except for us forgetful ones trying to take off with the stand locked up.

This is a great idea, and Honda could put a Lock light on the dash to remind us old fogey's the center stand lock is engagd.

In my opinion the idiot that allowed children to "play" on the bike should have been shot and peed on, not necessarily in that order.
If the bike where on the side stand and the boy pushed it over we could say that bikes should be equipped with dual side stands that deploy together.

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.

I truely agree! There is SOOOO many dum basses out there it ain't funny.My dad probably would have whooped my ass for touching the bike if it was me,BUT lots of kids anymore are free to do anything they want and it would make me sick to see one crushed by an 800lb bike just because the parents need a slap in the jaw.
It's only a matter of time where we are forced to mount our fridge and TV set to the wall.A simple little spring loaded lock would stop grown men too from shoving a bike over when they reach in the cooler while camping to get another beer.

Too many people lack common sense nowadays. I think a center stand lock is a great idea. It would prevent any accidents from happening.

Well, as long as we're battling social Darwinism, make it a solenoid lock that engages automatically when on the stand ( make one for the sidestand too) and the key is off, and disengages when you turn the key on.
