slow down a little bit and double check yourself
A few years ago I had a '79 XS750 Special.
It had a real heavy lean on the kickstand. Part design / part sloppy old kickstand.
I lowered the kickstand, and started leaning the bike over onto it. About the time I realized it was leaning to far (kickstand popped back up) I was almost at the point of no return.
Keep in mind I'm still straddleing the bike, but now also at more of an angle than I'd like to be, and this beast is going over on me.
Short story: With my left foot still being firmly planted, I managed to upright the bike using only my left arm.
Heard an audible pop from my left elbow, and tore the shit out of something in my right shoulder while doing it though.
Never went to the Dr. because...well, I still had a pulse, wasn't seeing double, and had no blood spraying from anywhere....
Took about a year for my elbow and shoulder to recover fully.
I get a "locked down" kickstand feel, as well as a visual, and don't relax my grip on the bars until I feel the bike solid on the kickstand now.
