If you're an idiot, then we're all idiots so you're in good company.

I also found the lean angle too steep with the stock kickstand, and the foot too small. If the ground was a bit soft, it dug a hole in the ground and fell over on more than one occasion. The second time it happened I went out to the shop the next day and cut a piece of steel out that's an inch bigger in both dimensions and tacked it on. No trouble since then.

I have also experienced the "Pilot error, failure to fully deploy landing gear" so now I physically look every time to make sure it's all the way out.

A nightmare thought, right there. If (when?) I misjudge when putting the Wee on the centerstand, there ain't nothin' on either side of it except concrete. It'll be ugly.
Don't worry, the ground will catch it.

I thought it would be great fun to have a real mad max beater and park like that every time.
