    Get a block of wood (thin - a coaster will do) or get a special stand prop from bike shops
    The next time it might be on its side :/

        yup... the lil sticky outie bit usually saves them from sinkin' too far to fall

            nah, pretty common. Just need something under it to spread the weight.

                I had a near new 1985 BMW R65 that sunk into hot bitumen like that, and fell over. It was at Dog Swamp Shopping centre, from memory.

                I still feel the pain and anguish sometimes to this day...

                  Yeah right, good to know then..I used to carry a Pepsi max can (squashed flat) around when I knew I'd be parking on grass or something soft. but would never have expected the stand to sink through bitumen, learn something new everyday

                  Would/should the local council be liable for damage if bike was to fall over

                    Have a look at bike parking spots - you'll see all the indents there... of course, right where you want to put your stand ^_^

                        you north or south of the river?

                        I have a side stand plate (mud bug) that you can have, as I don't have a road bike, and wont for the foreseeable future.
                        The greatest excitement comes from besting who you were yesterday.

                          High temps will do it on anything with an asphalt base.
                          Find an old plough disk or something similar and throw it in your back pack.

                              i still have the block from the 2011 MAD ride under the pillion seat.

                              EDIT: if the sidestand sinks and you leave the bike there all day, the bitumen would cool and contract later in the evening, possibly trapping the bike in the road. permanent modern art installation.
