Yeah, its a tough life, I mean on the 1098 the side stand is way up and under in the belly pan so you have to push the peg out of the way with your heel before you can get to it... :p

The monster isn't so bad, but the rear sets I just put on it make it a bit easier as well...

what about some of the stuff weve had here?

http://cbr250.com/forum/thread-263.html

for example...
In fairness though, the CBR250 is by and large bought by learners. It's intended purpose is to satisfy learner laws and getting people hooked onto Hondas. So learner ignorance is forgivable.

Ducatis however, are by and large bought by people who want to be seen as owning a Ducati.

Not all mind, just a large percentage.

True Drew. Girly's Monster is hard to get the kick stand out sometimes - but I think it just comes down to boots and kick stand position - but I get on with it and acknowledge it as a design fault and most likely the last thought of part in the design process.

How do you park it after you've ridden it to work then? :p
Outside clipon to full lock near the tank, then lean against a flat surface.

my gf's Monster 620's sidestand is a little bit more difficult to get to than most.
the angle it keeps the bike at is far too upright, it just looks unstable
fucked if i'd create a thread on a forum about it and my concerns though :lol:

Yeah, the 1098 is like that as well, its actually a bit of a pain to park because you have to find ground thats leaning the right way. The m1100 sidestand is HEAPS better though, I think that the m1100 and the older monsters all have the same engine casting etc, so you might actually be able to get a 696/1100 sidestand and put that onto your GFs bike?
