    Has anyone managed to find a side stand extender to fit a Trophy. I had one on my Explorer, and I'm wondering if one of those would fit the Trophy

    I have Never seen one nightflight for the TT.  What are the benefits? is it simply bigger footprint on the ground.

    Do you mean a bigger footprint on the ground,
    like the one  ( which may no longer be available ? ) discussed in this  :481: :

    AMC Side Stand Enlarger Fitted

    ... or a longer length of Side Stand,
    for example if you have Raised the suspension height ???

    Coconut, you have a memory like an elephant.  I remember reading that thread now,  and also thinking that's not cheap, factoring in exchange rate and p&P.

    Not ruling out purchase completely, be nice to see one in the flesh first.  As I've not met another TTSE in S Ireland yet, my chances on seeing or needing extender or indeed a enlarger are slim.  Keep up the good work

    I need one because I do quite a lot of camping, and if you park on grass, the thing just sinks in and falls over. I've never understood why they don't make bikes (unless a sports bike) with a wider footprint.

    I carry a tough plastic disc in the tankbag, drop it on the ground and maneuver bike stand onto it.  Then get off gingerly and make sure its firmly parked

    Similar to redcap I use a stand puk.

    This is a plastic disk or oval or shape of a bike outline. They are often give aways at bike shows. Flick the side stand down, drop the puk and slide under the stand with my foot.

    Seems to work for me and free :046:
    It wasn't me !!

    A stand puk,  that's what its called.   :005:

    Have several colours shapes, very handy to keep on board.
