Wicked Sidekicker adjustable sidestand

Now that the Sidekicker is going into production, go to page 8 for ordering information. July 18th (2012) deadline for advance order discount!

The Sidekicker is a patented well-executed adjustable sidestand that resolves lean-angle issues, but is only available for the R1200GS. Steve Ruth and his partner are working on the version for our F800GS (and presumably the F650GS twin). At the Bloomsburg rally where the Sidekicker was demonstrated, he said the F800GS version would be available early Spring. In an email yesterday, he wrote that not much progress was made, and now he is looking at early summer. You know how these side projects can get pushed to the back burner, so I am considering a Group Buy of a custom run of F800GS Sidekickers (he makes custom Sidekickers for any bike). It may turn into the first run of the final product, anyway. The price of the R1200GS version is $349.

Please have a look at the link above, especially the "How It Works" video, and reply with your interest. I'll go from there.
