Must be very German in my mindset, since I've never deployed a sidestand while on the bike. Doesn't make sense to sit on a machine with the side down as well. I'm 6'4" though, and have always felt...

Are you getting rid of the stock tank? If so, I'm interested. I've got a '74 R90/6 that I brought back from a similar condition. The 90/6 series makes for a great machine.
