    Still waiting for the new bike to delivered. The shipper kind of sucks. Lots of accessories piling up though. Had to make my first payment before I saw the bike in person!

    It is all the way across the country. They were a week late picking it up because they 'forgot' the dealership was closed on Sunday/Monday.

    Weird question... Looking to get a side stand pad extender/shoe or whatever you want to call it. Is the actual pad portion of the side stand the same on the bobber and the speedmaster? I see they make them for the bobber but nothing specifically for the speedmaster. In AZ it gets stupid hot and they stands sink in the asphalt. I know the stands are not the same part number but it the pad portion the same? Anyone know? Odd Question, I know.

    Still waiting to receive the bike too. lol

    If you mean the Bobber black then it’s exactly the same bike apart from the back end :)
    The original Bobber had a larger and skinnier front wheel so the side stand may well be different because of the height :confused:

    Yeah, it's weird. They don't list the Bobber Black either. The part numbers are different but in the photos they look very similar. I assume the pad is the same regardless. But, I have bad luck with assumptions.

    Here’s a thought @Brutusvk :eek:
    When I had my Speedmaster :cool:
    I used it to go camping and had to park it in muddy soft fields :confused:
    I made a puck on a string and when it was used I would wrap the string around the handle bar so I wouldn’t forget it :)

    I carry a plate now for my other bike. I am just getting lazier. I saw someone with one of these 'shoes" and thought I needed this in my life. And, OCD kicked in.

    Unless the shoe your looking at costs an absolute fortune I would just order it :)

    I found one that was the product demo, saved $8. Ordered it. Worth it as a pure curiosity cure now!

    If I could get a baby chucks to fit my ninja's side stand... I would consider it.

    The chair was unscathed. I should have bought cheaper furniture!

    the good news, I can still ride this bike. I can’t ride my other one because I am up on my toes a bit at lights.
