My 1980 R100RT has a Brown sidestand which is a dream. It holds the bike more nearly upright, making it easier to get up off the sidestand when ready to ride. No impact on stability; I've never had to worry that the bike would fall over to the right because it was too close to upright. Paying all due attention to the slope of the parking surface, of course.
The sidestand on my '06 RT is just too short. The bike leans way over, and it's already more top-heavy than the '80. Is there anything comparable to the Brown sidestand for this model bike?
For the inevitably helpful guy who suggests using Search: I've Googled but not found anything. I've also tried the Search function on this board, but got hundreds of hits. None of the first 30 or so had anything to do with the search I set up. I even tried it a couple different ways in Advanced Search. Signal to noise ratio way too high, and hundreds of posts to wade through. Didn't see a way to specify, for instance, this sub-forum.
