The old 2 stroke Vespas were designed to be laid over on the right side, without damage, to have the wheel changed. It would rest on 3 points, the kick start lever, the edge of the floorboard, and the throttle grip. Changing a rear tire took all of 5 minutes, the front took 3, if you were slow. IMO that was a major advantage over today's scoots and all motorcycles.
