The F650GS stands much more firmly even on a soft surface with this kick stand support extension. If you park the motor bike in a meadow or other soft surface such as sand or hot asphalt, you don't have to look for a small stick or rock.
A centerstand makes it much easier to do chain, rear wheel maintenance and oil changes. And a vertical motorcycle takes up less space in the garage. In many cases the bike is more stable when vertical, especially considering how far the F650GS-dakar leans over on the sidestand, the bike just looks better standing straight up!
This large sidestand foot for the BMW G650GS from Touratech doubles the surface area of the side stand base, so even heavily loaded motorcycles will stay safely standing on soft ground.
