I believe a better solution is the one used by Kawasaki on its Voyager 1200/1300 range of motorcycles since 1984. Effectively it is a two stage centrestand. The first stage rolls the bike forward and on to the stand legs. The second stage raises, and supports, the bike with minimal effort.

I found this video of this operation. It looks great! "Putting a Kawasaki Voyager XII on the center stand - YouTube"

this is an old concept which really doesn't do that much to add the stability of one's ride, just additional bulk which reduces one's ground clearance in tight turns and that metal grinding sound that goes with it.

I know of a few people that tried something similar and ended up adding it to their junk bin.

Yes I agree. Looks like Kawasaki has it licked!
