to those with a centerstand:

alot of standards and some other bikes come with centerstands.

i got a tip from prodigy that was funny as , if someone is on your , push the centerstand down enough to gently scrape the road, youll throw some nice sparks. he said people not only got off his rear, they would change lanes too :laughing6

i cant wait to try this out on the gs, wondering if anyone else has done it.

Never thought about it, but I'd worry that reaching my foot down there at speeds might not yield the best results - lots of moving parts. How about you just change lanes and let them by?

sometimes there is only one lane. or traffic may be congested to where there is too much traffic to change lanes.

no, i could see joe doing that with a 12 bar though, he said he used to have a gs and did it a long time ago.

i went through a pair of steel toe boots this way... pretty crazy to shoot sparks for 50-75ft people really get out from behind you

Chris is it an option to remove the center stand? I know it would be usefull but I think the bike would be nicer without.

exactly.. I did it with my 250 all the time

just put it in first and let the wheel roll with some throttle and lean back.. start slow or else you'll loop it

... until you get used to the ease of cleaning and lubing the chain, aligning the rear after a tire change, fixing a flat on the road...

im 50/50 on keeping it or not. i think im gonna leave it on at least for a while. the bike allready gets 50mpg, and accelerates decently... its not like it needs the weight reduction.
