    I would be interested in buying a ride off stand for my 71 if someone wants to get rid of one.

    I only use the side stand, especially in the garage where it is needed for my dolly. Smoking is very minimal. But the top end is tight. On the /5 the top end was pretty worn so more smoking. But that (and the '83) were using the same Lufty sidestand.

    I don't give a shit what others think of me. The Harley crowd doesn't give a shit about others picking up the pieces that fall off. A style for everybody.

    PM inbound.

    ...

    I use my center stand most any chance I get, any time there is level ground and little chance of tipping over.

    ...

    Yet you give a shit what other people do:

    Pieces never fell off any of the Harleys I have owned and the one I currently own.

    LOL. Right! Rubber mounting is a miracle.
