Default Kickstand interlock

Can anyone tell me why Victory does not have a kickstand interlock on the Vision? My VTX had one my $20,000 plus vision does not. My VTX would not go if you put in gear with the kickstand down. I found this to a real great saftey feature. Doen't get me wrong I love my Vision and I have never forgat to put the kickstand up ...BUT...forget just once and that is an accident waiting to happen.

Riders of higher intelligence buy and ride Victorys. Therefore, Victory sees no need to dumb down their bikes.

As much as I appreciate the humor in that, I agree that the technology is easy and should be included. Came off a BMW and owners of those bike, while not the most personable, are relatively intelligent.

See no need for it myself .. Been riding 40 plus years without one will do fine without one what years I have left Riding .. I do most of my own wrenching and comes in handy to be able start your Bike on the Stand or on a Jack which won't allow the kickstand to raise to run the engine when checking for leaks, etc.. After work has been done ..

Thats why victory puts a rubber pad on kickstand. If your not paying attention to what your doing the rubber pad hits the ground and pops its it up.
Because you for get to put it up don't blame Victory

I forgot mine in the downwards position, once. Only happened once. As soon as I took off and leaned slightly to the left, the kickstand touched down and closed. No accident, no problem.

By the way, if the bikes did have a kickstand interlock (which I also don't think is needed), what would we ask for next? Helmet interlock? Both hands on the handlebars interlock? Butt on the seat interlock?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

It might be good for those who go somewhere but forget to get on the bike first.
