Never seen a foot extension in use, only in ad's or forums. Chums & me use a puck, 4" dia good for camp grounds. On uneven gravelly ground the oe stand lets us dig in to give lean.

Nowt better to talk about with this bleddy lockdown have we. I'm seizing up with lack of use.
Also: '16 Tiger 800, '95 Yamaha Serow, '58 Ariel FH.

Never camped with the bike?  Some of the classic bike shows too, like Stafford, are on very soft ground. Some years they give out free plastic pucks, but then another year someone forget to pack them :008:

Camping I use one of these.



At Rouen 2018 I saw a BMW GS slowly topple over as the foot sank in the soft ground, it was funny..
I never touched it, you can't blame me, it went off when I was cleaning it.

At least it would only go as far as the cylinder head!

On the odd occasion I was going somewhere where i knew the ground was going to be soft going I took a short piece of 4x1 timber and used the ctr stand
