Reason for a Motorcycle Kickstand Support

I had once ridden down to South California from the Bay Area on my Honda CBR600F4. On this trip, I learned the importance of having a motorcycle kickstand support if you to park your bike in less than ideal conditions. While staying at my friend’s house in Riverside, CA, I parked my motorcycle out in front of his house.

Here is a link to a KiWAV kickstand support on Amazon that usually costs less than $10.
