General Discussion / Re: Is it worth installing a kick stand?

I think it's just a matter of personal preference.  I know people who like it one way or the other.

I can't speak for using a kickstand on a long tour, but on the short weekend and week long tours I've done I've really liked my kickstand.  It makes it a lot easier to stand it up rather than always looking for something to lean it against.  And for me- weight isn't an issue- what's another .5 lb when I'm already lugging around 40?

I just read The Road that has no end by Tim Travis and I just bought their second book Down the Road in South America.  As a couple they sold everything they had to tour the world for 7 years, and are now in their 6th year with no plans to stop.  I've read a lot of touring books and this one was by far my favorite.

Miles from Nowhere is a good read also.
