TWF kickstand pucks?

Did anything ever come of this? I know someone had brought it up and were looking into it. I wouldn't mind chipping in some money (hopefully some others would too) if Shan allowed us to use the logo or had some made and shipped to me so I could pass them out to everyone that came to the unofficial rally as sort of a little hey thank you for coming gift or even to sell them and give the money made to the site. Sell any extras on the site and all proceeds back to the site.

We're actually still looking in to this. In fact, we just were discussing it recently.

Yeah I was just asking cause the rally is getting close, so the window is getting smaller. I recently had to pick one up too, because the CBR's kickstand is tiny on the bottom.

I've never heard of a kickstand puck. What is it?

its usually a rubber pad that you put under the kickstand to give it a larger foot print and keep it from sliding.

Or in the really hot south and west, it will keep it from sinking into asphalt and tipping over.

Not just the south, I've seen bikes on their side here in ND too, when their kick stands sank into the asphalt.

So you said you had them before... Any idea of cost? I think with some of the talented mofo's we have around here we could get a cool design whipped together pretty quick...

Actually that was before my time here...so I'm not sure of the cost. I'll look into it. I know we've discussed it in the past.
