One I gave to the person that suggested the idea as compensation for their contribution.

Another sold to Herb Parsons and one to someone else I done remember right now...lol.. you know how that goes,memory is getting worse with age.

:readit: I guess i didn't SUGGEST the idea,to YOU.I THOUGHT of this idea and started this thread for my idea.I only had thoughts for a center stand lock,and was not interested in taking it any further other than post it in the HONDA FEEDBACK forum.I'm glad someone ran with this idea.I really think the heavy bikes should come with a CS lock from the factory.I commend you for your time, research and development,making this safety feature come to life.It looks to serve as what is was intended for,with ease to operate.

I seriously thought about purchasing one from you,but with the tools and fabricating experience i have myself,i am waiting to find time to make one for my own 2 Goldwings with a small cable pull.

Thanks!

To be completely frank, I was working in my shop making bellypans when a fellow member and friend of mine from another forum called me. We got to talking and he suggested the lock. After that I started researching it and found this thread. After that is when I joined here. I don't believe he is a member here so I don't think he stole your idea.

If anyone wants to fabricate one for my 1200 I'd be grateful. I almost pushed mine off it's stand while working on it and I didn't not like that at all. ;)

Besides that, this is only for the 1800. It wouldn't fit your bikes anyway. I've also only made 5 and sold 3.. I don't have people knocking down my door for them like we thought they would. I guess it isn't something people even think about and I only use mine when I've got the front wheel off...

I wasn't going to give him the one I did , but no one was wanting to buy it so I did..

Seems like a show where there is a possibility some person might fool with the bike it would be simple to use a short ratchet strap. Jus hook it to the center stand on one end and the other forward on the bike and snug it up. I've done that in my old shop when working on a bike to make sure it couldn't come off the stand when I was working on it.

Probably a good idea and simpler than Macgyver's gizmo.
The one I bought didn't fit. I still haven't modified it to get it to work.
Good idea though.
