The motorcycle parking at school is uphill and I am never quite sure what is the best was to park the bike. In addition, some of the curbs in my town have a grade as well. Today I while parking at a starbucks I realize that the curb had enough of a gradation to make the kickstand useless, so I used the center stand. It seemed really stable till it was time to go. I rolled off the center stand and couldn't use the sidestand like I usually do so I went down within seconds of rolling off the center stand. I was backed into the parking space at an angle. How do you park when there is a hill or a drainage slope at a curb? Is it better to use the center stand or the sidestand? If you are forced to use the center stand on a slope and there isn't enough clearance to put the kickstand down when rolling off, how do you keep the bike stable? Any advice would be helpful as there are several places were slopes just aren't avoidable.
