No joke, I parked on cement, put down the sickstand on my 2018 Heritage opened my saddle bags got stuff out went into the shop. Heard a loud noise, went out and to my horror it was on it's side.
Third time Harley owner and never had this happen.
Seems like a bad design.

You should be able to push the bike around while leaning on the side stand... Unless they "fixed it" :duh?:.

Was it not long enough and leaning hard on the stand? When I raised my FXR with longer shocks and fork tubes it leaned to a scary angle just welded a long extension on it so the bike sits much more upright and far less pressure on it now. If the stand sank in the blacktop just carry a small pad so it spreads the load on the ground.
