Yeah, unfortunately (actually fortunately) I am mostly by myself and often in the middle of nowhere, so this trick won't do my any good. Thanks for the suggestion though

I had one but took it off. It interfered with my regular kickstand, made too much noise, weighed a ton, and made my clearance way less, so I was hitting it when riding over rocky areas. I also am a bit of a wimp, and I was never able to get the bike on the stand, no matter how hard I tried.
