    Yep, due to me having long legs; I can do this. If the center stand tang is in the way. Push the center gently to the ground and outa the way. At the end of the procedure just gently kick the center stand back in to full retract.

    Back in the 1970s there were European BMW videos showing riders coming to a stop, stepping off the motorcycle while holding the handlebars, and then deploying the side stand while standing beside the motorcycle. It is my belief that this is what the designers intended when they equipped motorcycles with these wretched side stands.

    I had a friend back in the Ď70ís and earlier Ď80ís who besides being and incredible BMW and NSU mechanic, was a very good rider. He would come to a stop using the front brake, while lowering the center stand and while still on the bike, rocked it back onto the centerstand and then step off. The dealer we worked for at the time, an old German roadracer, said a German would never use a sidestand.

    I had a R100GS with the same side stand. I am 5' 10".

    When I stopped, I still continued to keep the front brake pulled. I deployed the side stand as far as I could and rested the bike on the partially deployed side stand. With the front bake pulled, it is a stable position. Next I pulled the clutch and while still keeping the weight on the side stand, I pushed the bike backwards with my left foot until the side stand was completely deployed.

    It works, with some experience, even on a slippery surface. I learned not do this when the bike was pointed downwards at a sloped surface.

    Or, another option: I met a R100GS owner who weld a pin onto the side stand about one third up from the bottom of the stand.

    We had a friend who had long arms and he would stop, reach down, and deploy the sidestand. I put a Brown stand on every Airhead we ever owned including an R80ST it wasn't supposed to fit. I had to use an extra muffler clamp but it worked.

    I remember a guy at rallies; Trail of Tears and Falling Leaf come to mind. I think he road a K75. He would ride in loaded. He put both feet on the ground, straddling the bike, put the center stand down and snatch the bike up on the center stand; then step off the bike. Wow. He was really tall.

    Back to the side stand issue. Iíve learned how to fiddle the side stand down. Sooner or later under less than ideal conditions, I can see me dropping the bike. Time to get Leo to weld a tang on the stand so I can get it down safely. When I get it done, Iíll take some pics and postíem.

    I saw the sidestand shown below on a feller's airhead GS at the RA rally in NC recently. He said that it is a Migsel sidestand. Very nice!!

    I have a Farley sidestand on my 1984 R80RT and it works great. It is mounted farther back than the stock sidestand, similar to a Brown sidestand. According to this
    https://forum.boxerworks.com/viewtopic.php?t=6049
    the Farley sidestand fits a 95 R100RT. This person reported a problem with the install on a 94 RT and has some photos.

    Snowbum has photos of a Farley here

    I would send a photo of the Farley on my R80 but the bike is currently parked so I cannot get a photo of the left side.

    Farley machining is a one man machine shop run by Robert Van Farowe. I live close enough that I picked up my stand from the shop, he is a rider and a pleasant fellow. According to his Facebook page the shop is still in business. It may be worth a call to Bob and see if the Farley stand will fit.

    On a previous post this thread, someone contacted Bob and he said he's never made a stand for the R100R. So, I'm guessing he doesn't have anything.

    But thanks for all the other links...should be helpful to someone!

    Has anyone ever seen a side stand like this? It was on my 93 RT project motorcycle. The thick neck has a spring and detent ball inside. Holds the stand up and down. I will not reuse it, and am looking at all options. Engles Motors did a lot of work to this motorcycle.
