Does anyone carry anything small to put under their kickstand incase they have to park on a surface where their kickstand may sink and subsequently come out to find their bike lying on it's side?
I'm super brand new to a motorcycle so excuse my ignorance.

I do. It's a kick stand puck. Got it for like $3.00, 3 years ago. I keep it in my tank bag. A smashed soda or beer can works in a pinch too.

if its windy point bike into the wind or slightly front right side if you can and if sunny and hot park in the shade where possible or park so bike shades where bike stand touches the pavement and use light colored puck. also use puck on loose or wet dirt or gravel as suggested by others,my friend had a black puck on sunny hot day and he found his bike 650 on its side because puck melted into the pavement sideways then stand melted in.hope this helps.

Yes...... It was the under the boot strap on raingear. Went to put kickstand down, and that strap bust of been caught in it. Kickstand ended up in the up position, and i didn't know. Went to get off to get gas....well down it went.....
I cut them straps off right there.....
Just earlier in the day the same side was caught in the footpeg while driving.
I thought then.... I'd should cut them things off, but didn't get to it.
