The design of the kickstand is somewhat less than stellar. It should go further down (or forward if you will). As it is, you have to be pretty careful when parking...make sure the bike is in gear and rolled as far forward as it will go before setting the kickstand. A good idea on any bike of course, but there is not much margin for error on the LT.
