My bike doesn’t have a main stand. But if it did, I would use it.
You must be in the EU? In the US all Super Tens came with center stands. Optional for Std models in the EU for some model years. It can be added, but best find one from a breaker to avoid sticker shock!

If you think about it MattR, add your location to your profile. It gives context to your posts. :)

Yep in the UK. I’ll fix my profile if I can figure it out
Jeez, I'm going to have to start saying UK or EU instead of just EU soon. :oops:

Hmmmm. ..G.B. is about to enter very interesting times. I sincerely hope it all works out favourably for the people of the United Kingdom.

Or, just "over there". :)
Across the pond sort of covers it.

I remain confused about some things though. Europe is called a "continent", but it's really part of Asia. Connected land mass and all. ;)

Asked the same question way back in school. Never got an answer. Teacher acted as if I was being a smart ass.

Eurasia (modern politically correct term) is pretty much divided east vs west of the Caspian Sea and Ural Mountain chain.

Thanks, that was an interesting read. Political boundaries by people trying to distance themselves. Old school "Us & Them" small minded thinking, IMHO.

We still have the hot mess of dealing with EU, UK and the uncertainty of Northern Ireland. Perhaps that will sort itself out in my lifetime. I'm not holding my breath though.

IMHO, we are heading for a whole world of pain when we leave the EU. :(
Remains to be seen.
I'm anticipating an even stronger relationship, read trading etc. with the western world. I know there are a lot of Brits who do not like Mr. Trump. Just like Mr. Trudeau, he didn't win the popular vote either, just more seats or ridings as we call them in Canada. The U.S. is still a very strong nation, although heavily divided, but the potential trade with the west will assist G.B. with the departure from the E.U.
I'm hoping for the best.

In the UK we love Trudeau. He’s a dude But Ardern is even better. She just gets it.
Unfortunately we have an idiot that thinks it’s funny to set fire to a £50 note in front of a homeless man trying to sleep in a doorway...

Trudeau, I'm not a fan. He cares only about himself, corrupt, narcissistic little bugger.
Who lit fire to the fifty quid note,?

:)Off topic:D
This thread got split off into its' own topic, so it's on topic for what it is.

But

We are losing the topic if people want to go into their political views. This thread will be shut down if it goes that way. There are plenty of other places on the intertoobs dedicated to that crap and I know a lot of us come here to escape that daily water torture.

Nobody is ever going to convince another person through a motorcycle forum to change their fundamental views about politics, religions, or whether sardines should be put on pizza.

Hey Tenman, although I am a culprit, I have to agree with you. As a proud Canadian, I have a great affinity for Great Britain.
I shall, there for, cease and desist spewing my political opinions on this forum.
My sincere apologies to all for getting carried away, i.e. totally off topic.
Y, para mis amigos in el mundo latino, lo siento mucho para hablando en los topicos otros.
