For $350 I will pass.
Am I the only person who has figured out how to turn my bike in a parking spot to a different angle and corrct the lean that way?

+1... I am always scoping out the best angle before stopping. I've had a few drops with it fully loaded and now it always the first thing I do before parking.

I've never bought an aftermarket windshield, seat or kickstand because I'm saving my money for one of these!

PLEASE tell me you are kidding....That may work for some people....but NOT for me. I dont even care about gear selector indicator and I prefer a clear fuel tank as my gas gauge...Speedo and Odo are all I need. I know its in neutral if it rolls with the clutch out...I know the high beam is on if I flip the switch up or down and it gets brighter or darker...I like paper maps and exploring...if the trail goes nowhere...the bike goes just fine the other way.

I guess I am just not a gadget guy...a farkle to me is having Enzo trick out my suspension, a bigger gas tank, new exhaust, you stuff that makes a bike GO FAST and do it smoothly.

Is a KLR fast enough to need a radar detector? Especially a Valentine 1.That crap has doubled the value of the bike.

Way too much money. I can look for a good place to park then sit and count the 350 dollars I have in my pocket.

Kicker side stand

Anyone using a kicker side stand on a 1200 gs?? Do they work OK and any issues with the extendable mechanism?
Are they still manufactured?

I am looking for a solution to extreme bike lean that I find challenging when my bike is fully loaded and I have parked on an off camber surface (I notice BMW seems to have fixed this issue on that the LC bikes)

Yes I have seen the pictures of hockey pucs

Seriously, a ton of value? For whom? You must be selling these.

Saw it, fondled it, and drooled over it at the Nationals this past July. Pricey, but considering the quality and heft of it, not unreasonable. Probably the only farkle I'd like to add to my Rallye. Maybe this winter ...........

It certainly looks nice. Too expensive for my tastes to satisfy that function.
To be honest, once in a blue moon I'm parking the bike and thinking "holy smokes, I hope I can right this thing when I get back out", but they are so far and few between, I'd forget I even had this.

I have one of those fat Touratech feet on my stock stand for soft ground. This appears to add that functionality, which is good, since it doesn't appear to support the other aftermarket footprints that fit the stock stand foot. I wonder how they compare in that respect. I couldn't justify the price just for that, though.
