Paint damage, good for normal use
The sidestand is used when parking the motorcycle. When you are not using your motorcycle for a while, you can fold out the side stand and rest your bike on it. Compared to the centerstand, it is faster and is very stable due to the three rest points. The surface is important here and it must be solid, otherwise there is a risk that the motorcycle will sink away. An extender can be mounted for a more stable surface. When the motorcycle is used again, it is important to fold the side stand back up. This can sometimes be forgotten. That is why side stands are also available with security. The side stand is then automatically folded, or a switch ensures that you cannot drive away.
