Sounds cool but what if the bike rolls forward a little while you're up in the air with no feet on the ground? If the bike rolled enough to let the kickstand go up it seems like that would be an instant face plant. But, if it works for you that's great.BikerRon wrote: When I shut off my bike I lock the forks before I get off.

Same for mounting. I have factory hard bags and this a lot of real estate to clear with my 11D boot without scuffing anything. I place my right boot on the running board and step up, and swing my left leg over.
