I've seen a device that takes the place of a center stand. It's basically a small aluminum crutch that when needed is attached to the right side foot peg or swing arm and a spacer is placed under the existing side stand. Together they hold the rear wheel off the ground. I'm thinking of making one from pieces of a Harbor Freight folding aluminum cane.

But I don't have any physical limitation that prevents me from just muscling them around.

The Sym Wolf 150 is very attractive in terms of styling.
