I don't know about you guys, but once I put my weight on the seat, the kickstand is hitting the ground even with the bike straight up. I don't think I would get very far without noticing. It's not like I'm a big guy (5'8", 170 pounds). I think it is just a long kick stand and the airbag rear suspension droops (90psi). I have the steel kickstand if that makes any difference.
