Others having issue with side stand?

A minor irritant at this point considering how fun this bike is overall, but are others finding the sidestand a pain to deploy (Hyperstrada but I assume it's the same on the motard)?

If so any ideas on how to improve?

Thanks
Frederic

Find the center stand with your heel and just go below it for the side stand. Pretty easy once you get the knack of it

Thanks - well - it must be me then :-)

Perhaps this means I need to ride longer and stop less often!

If your short like me it is a pain. I'm on my toes so it's a balancing act. I removed the center stand since I don't use it anyway and have a paddock stand if I need to pull the wheel. It made it much easier to deploy the side stand.

yeah, it sucks. Mine is a daily driver and I'd say half the time I stick it without hunting. I wondered if some extension would work but I've already drug the toe of my boot on a right turn...

I have the same issue . I can easily find the stand with my toe but when I flick it forward, my leg catches on the footrest. Maybe because I wear over the boot trousers/pants?

I will add a small extension to the stand at some point

Hi short arse here too I also struggled at first as with all other bikes I always just used the underneath most rearward part of the heel but now use the ball of my foot and do it all in one motion hope this helps
