Careful when working with that concrete, once dried it can be brittle.

I was looking to do something similar.
It does not make any sense that there are no after-market parts like that available. Here is my though - think Victory Vision
- they have a set of "paddles" to stop m/c from falling when stationary - it would not help much when riding, but with a bit of mod - I am thinking paddles extending partially over saddlebags, mounted to frame might do the trick.

one question

What will you attatch them to? The passenger peg bolts won't even get close to the grond with out snapping with the weight of our bikes. How will you affix them to the bike with?

Long standing joke, mention crash bars and concrete comes to mind. Previous user (Gnuguy or something close) posted his mod which included filling his crashbars with concrete to increase the strength..Took a lot of welll meant critiscism the wrong way and quit the forum.

Buy a goldwing

The new goldwings do the same thing. matter of fact that is one of the ways to change the rear tire. Not recommended but it works.

I have not experienced it yet on the goldwing.

I have leaned my VTX1300R on its side and the floor board did a great job of holding it up.

O well back to the drawing board....

Hmmm, maybe the cement thing is not such a bad idea after all? Must go away somewhere and think this over,,,,,
