Draggin the side stand

Is it just me? I seem to drag my sidestand making tight turns. The stand seems to be all the way up so I don't know. Must be normal. I have an 05 Electra Glide

It it is a complaint of Harleys. Its either the kickstand or floorboards.

Be careful with that. I have seen guys "pirouette" on that, stand digs in and next thing you now the bike is facing an undesirable direction. Typically with the rider several feet away.

Nitram_b4 is reading this now saying WTF is this?
front of my stand is sharpened quite nicely
my lower exhaust is kinda ugly too, but you would have to be laying on the ground to see it

Yup, agree, it's normal. If your like me, your comfortable with your bike and it's limits.

I've scraped my bags, pipes, bottom frame tube, floorboards/brackets, kick stand, and even the bottom portion of my lower front fender. It just HAPPENS when your comfortable on your ride and you wanna test the limits...maybe that's called "aggressive", HA!

Onboard with RowdyRidgid tho...I've scraped my floorboard long and hard enough, that I stopped the pig dead in it's tracks and layed it on it's side...which btw was at a Motorcycle Rodeo. HA! Gave the fans somethin to go crazy over.

Slic-side-down!

only thing that will make your azzhole pucker is when you feel the rear wheel unload,
because the weight is being distributed elsewhere, you eather get the weight back where it belongs or it could get ugly

you'll find "the limits "very quickly on a harley dresser.
I cant get over how many guys lower the bike so they are limited even further.

Yupper...agree. It's looks good for show, but for us who travel roads to the extremes, it ain't no good tripper add-on.

Back on dynaglydr tho, it'd be good idea to keep xtra springs on the "shelf" as well. I wear those out more ofter than kickstands...frame hole in the bracket usually goes next.

I just don't recall my Dyna SG dragging AS much, but then again, it had scrapes on the pegs, stand and pipes from the twisties.

Oh yah! had it happen once with wife on back,puckered so tight could have squizzed a 5/16" bolt in half.Used the whole road to get back under control,luckly no traffic.Forever changed the right side exhaust exit angle.

I've got a few spots where contact is made every now and then (exhaust & frame on right, kickstand on left). I enjoy twisties more than highway so I never lowered mine for that reason. Things have been ground down pretty good after 40K+ miles so it's not happening as much!
