Hi, glad you're likin' it!

The centre stand will only work if he bike's in neutral, and you'e not operating either of the brakes - it's set up that way to make sure you only put it on the stand on level ground.

I found that out the hard way the day I collected mine - thought I'd bought 'pup' 'til I thought about it........... :cool:

Me too glad you made it back inspite of weather.
I don't know if in your excitement you got a chance to read your manual. But if your side stand was extended CS would not engage also if you are in 'R' reverse it would not deploy either. Hope the heavy downpours has nothing to do with it. Getting up to 70 by me I will do the same ride.
ride safe :bmw:
