And the side stand allows you to back into a curb using it as a brake, even in gear.
No smoking from mine but I always take my gloves off, my helmet chin strap, pull anything from the counsel, roll forward on the compression, flop it on the side stand.
I thought I was having a stroke on seeing it the first time. Read here on the Forum and yep they all will do it, unless you do this, no issues since
Center stand has its place, but if you park it a bit uphill it can be a challenge, or funny depending on what seat you are in.
I do use my center stand every night to park on my lift.
I know I can spin my bike on the center stand, on the lift, so I agree on those two little feat, not instilling confidence in me either. A cover blow over seems very possible to me.Once it goes forward, good-by. Not in gear, and would not matter anyway, unless you leave the side stand down also and, put it in gear, and got lucky, When I had my bike off the center stand to replace the skid plate supports, I did put my side stand down out of habit. If you wheel is locked, and Voodoo happen, it should fall to the side stand side
First gear rolled, against the compression stroke, backed into a curb is bomb. Get on start it, and put in neutral to adjust things and such nice brake.
Also as pointed out the the triangle weight thing, I mean two tires and a side stand compared to the center stand feet for contact patch makes sense to me, always has, never had a bike with a center stand before the LT.
