Only when I change the oil, rear tire, or brakes. Waaaay too much effort for casual use.

Another reason I don't use the centerstand that much is stability. The sidestand provides a wider tripod. The only time my SWing was ever knocked over it was on the centerstand.

I use it 99% of the time. The other 1% I just let the Swing fall over onto its side. rolling laughter

I use the side stand most of the time and use the center stand for maintenance or when setting-up trailer hitchs for others. What helps is having the side stand switch disabled. I do like that...being the old biker fart, I am.

I use it when I'm storing the bike. Sometimes when I'm filling up.

99% of the time. About the only time I don't use it is when I'm just running into a store for a few minutes and coming right back out, or if the ground under the Swing is too soft to make it stable.

Rarely use the centre stand. As Dennis, I have the side stand disabled too.

I don't use the center stand when I commute on the ferry 'cause everyone else is on side stands. I'd disrupt the Chi.

Center stand at home. Saves space in the garage.

Neither. That's the best thing about a trike. :lol!: :flower:

Gotta make sure the park brake is on, tho.

About half of the time .And you have to make sure the park brake is on when you use the side stand as well .

I get way too anal about using the side stand on anything but concrete. I carry around a metal cover plate from an electrical junction box to put under the side stand pad when parking on anything but concrete. All it takes is for your Swing to fall over once and I guarantee you'll never let that happen again. BTW, mine hasn't fallen over yet, but I know too many riders who have.

I made the foot bigger on my side stand now it doesn't sink
near as quickly . At the lake I park it on a board . If I think of it I will show you next time we ride .
