yes, there is many ways to rotate the chain without rear stands , either walk the bike a bit or like you do, let it rest on kickstand while you lift the rear wheel slightly and rotate it.I have the Pit Bull - its $200 I was told by all the Mechanics, you are buying peace of mind - they never fail.
But it is also $130 more & I have yet to use it - I simply put the bike on the kickstand, pick it up, turn the wheel & repeat the process a few times.
Yet to hear of anyone knocking the kickstand with boots before, what make & model?
yeah, haha that's a first with my new riding boots
I use those Street & Steel brand, Mercenary model size US 11, they are sturdy:
I like zippers on sides, make it quick to put on or take off, and I needed a higher boot above ankle, because my pants tend to go up when I sit on the bike.
They are not exactly designed for sports bikes, more Harley cruiser style probably, but I like them.
It's just now I have to think twice before using them again until I fix the kickstand spring.
