We spent the night in an Alpine, AZ, motel, and I parked my G/S on its sidestand, as I do everywhere except my garage.
We arrived early, and soon thereafter the motel was filled with Harleys.
Next morning those guys were right there watching as we loaded up (what's that "tankbag" thing?) and they got a facefull of smoke when I started up. I liked it.
