How about...... The kickstand is slightly too long on my ktm 950. Just finished a 5000 km trip through Laos and Cambodia without the sides of the bike touching anything except air. At the very end of the trip in the garage I took off the heavier left side saddle bag. Of course the second I took the bag off the bike teeters for a second then executes a perfect slow crash on the right side into my friend's Africa Twin that he had foolishly parked right next to me. His bike sort of caught mine about half the way down, with only my rear view mirror dying and a few tiny scratches. I looked stunned for a few seconds then started laughing at the irony. So now I pull off my right side bag first.
If you can't pick it up by yourself, it is not an adventure bike.
