Curious to know how others park their bikes. I park mine on front and rear stands unless I'm going to ride it the next day then I use a Baxley Sport Chock which is really easy to ride onto the chock, get off the bike, and it stays very steady and ready for another ride. Don't know if my concern about getting flat spots is valid but I'd rather er on the side of not getting them.

During the riding season you’ll never see my bike on stands unless it’s being worked on. Not too worried about flat spots, have had my bike for almost 4 years. But what I need to start doing is check my tire pressure on a weekly basis or get a tpms valve sensor check to keep my tires filled. Whatever works for you and your bike, there is no wrong answer

For the last eight years i have owned the Diavel its always parked on the regular side stands. i bought a Constand back then but never ended up . still packed never opened it lol. the only rear pitbull stand i use is when i need to clean the chain.

I guess I’m overthinking it…

My mechanic said that USD forks tend to leak sooner when they’re compressed and static for a long time, so I’ve mounted a center stand to the lower frame plugs to lift the front wheel. Rear wheel is on the paddock stand.

I don’t expect to touch the bike for about five months so I thought: ”better be safe than sorry”.

I think trusting your mechanic is a good call. He likely knows more about the bike than most of us. If it was a Harley I wouldn’t be concerned but these are precision designed machines.

I park the Duc and the HD on the factory side stand. Neither sits very long, so I'm not too worried about storage problems. The HD stand just gets in the way when I'm cornering.........need to move it..........

Yep, 20 plus years and 5 Ducs side stand year round, I do check my air every other month.
