Don't bother with the shoe unless you plan to park in soft sand/dirt frequently. It'll only make the bike more likely to tip over.Yes, I have noticed the sidestand is quite long. My friends generously gifted me a Wunderlich s’stand ‘shoe’ for my RS, so up a bit further I go!
I am happy to be on the RS with it relatively light weight. A pleasant change for me. Thanks Serrge.
