Solved my broken side stand problem!

Sorry for the teaser title...

I solve my broken side stand problem - with no remedy in sight - by trading in the bike.

After being in a motorcycle purgatory for over a month with a snapped side stand mount, a BMW recall to reinforce the mounts that have not failed, but no information about what would be done (or when) for those that failed, I became supremely frustrated not being able to ride confidently. The summer is slipping away...

Traded in the GS with +/- 2,200 miles for a demo/used 2017 r nineT Scrambler with only 800 miles on it, with first break in service performed! I guess BMW marketing thoughts worked as planned in my case - moving up the ladder...

MAX BMW did a solid deal with me on both my "un-sellable" G310GS and the new-to-me Scrambler. Hats off to the dealer here.

So, moving on now.

I will be posting in the for sale section an SW Motech skid plate, the GIVI adapter bracket and M8 plate, and an ERMAX windscreen.

Great, informative forum here! Best of luck all!

Ok that's a solution. Have fun on the nineT, should be quite a different ride!
