Sigh. Lets go through this again. We'll use your scenario with the bike on a trailer and it's pogo- ing onto the stand. If the stand is strengthened, it doesn't give, then forces are transferred where? Sump? Crankcase? That part breaks and you'd be here complaining. OK, that part gets strengthened, then those sames forces are transferred where? Ok, now that part is strengthened and now the forces are being transferred where? Fast forward to the end. Ok, we've strengthened everything that can be affected by forces acting on the sidestand. Now the bike weighs 600lbs. Now it needs stronger shocks. Stronger springs. Bigger brakes. A stronger frame. Now its 720lbs. Errbody complaining about it being a porker. And underpowered. And ... scene.
