Extra switches and wires can be a stranding waiting to happen.
Not downplaying what brother Jack said one bit. Just two angles to see
the same thing from. Fix it tight and right, or disable. Our dads, granddads,
and me in the younger days ALL needed to kick up the stand before taking off.
If you automatically pop the stand up it's all good. I pull the clutch after righting
the bike level, kick up the stand, then toe first gear. Automatic and every time I
get on. Haven't pole-vaulted yet............... Still, I catch myself glancing down
before going into a hard left.
