    I have had one of these for three years: https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...ource=RevZilla

    I thought it was expensive at $57 in 2015. $72 now...well, Wow! Anyway, it's big and it bangs into the bottom of my Illium Works Sportboard. This one has a flawless record so far. Not a single tipover on many questionable surfaces...grass, gravel, etc. But $72...?

    I'm not sure which one you're buying, but remember that it will change the lean angle of your RT when parked on the side stand. Be sure you are comfortable with the lean before walking away. (You can change easily change the lean angle by varying the ride characteristics if you have ESA).

    I also recommend using a drop of Loc-Tite (or equivalent) on each bolt/screw to help keep them from backing it out and losing the FatFoot. (Don't ask why I'm adding this recommendation).

    Overall, I find the FatFoot gives me a sense of security when parking on non-paved surfaces.

    As always, YMMV.

    I do, the first one I got was the Hornig it was too thick, the bike stood up too straight making it likely to fall over. I then purchased http://www.iliumworks.com/BMW_Motorc...0%2D100&pID=97 I works great and I relay like the tab.

    Here's a Ilium Works foot on my '18 RT. I ground down back side of foot so it would not touch rear portion of my shift linkage. I went with this because I have Suburban Machinery lowering foot pegs which made it difficult to deploy side stand. The original deployment tang on stand was too close to foot peg after I lowered it. The tab on this foot enlarger makes it easier to deploy.
