In my case,the road had an "ever so slightly" down hill gradient, I did not even notice it,as I know the perils of a sloping street. !! The side stand on the T/Bird is only slightly forward of centre and the wheel bearings are "very free". Prior to the T/Bird I had A T100 Bonnie and that stand went further forward. Also my Classic 1971 TR6R stand goes a long way forward. Finding a better parking spot and leaving the bike in gear is now second nature !
