Just Me? Or Is The Kickstand In A Terrible Spot

Like, it's right under the peg and totally hard to kick out.

Any solutions? Aftermarket stands?

Catch it with the tip of your foot from behind the foot peg.

It may be a lil tougher than most without the hideous lil helper post sticking out but this is the price you pay for the most beautiful kickstand ever.

I can't use my heel to engage it at all, so like the above, I come from behind/under the pegs and use my toes.
Thanks from mtb

I can get it with mysize 10 race boot with the heal no prob. So funny cuz My buddy with his s1k switched today and once he wanted to put mine down I watched him struggle for a good minute laughing. Until I got off and put it down for him as I didn't want a scuff on the $3k Akra lol Then I woulda been crying.

size 10.5 US BMW GS adventure boots here and I can get the stand manipulated no prob. Just have to get used to the position and the gap where you have to point your toe into.
