    Hi, having relatively recently become a left leg below knee (LBKA) I have discovered I reluctantly have to make some modifications to my Road King so that I can continue to ride again. 

    How has other fellow left leg amputees solved the issue with reaching the jiffy stand without inhibiting the ability to walk the bike backwards When the stand is up?

    Cheers Dave.

    Hi mate, I have a small Indy workshop and recently did a project for a guy with a similar disability. I transferred the shift set up to the right side of the bike, installed an electric push button shifter, a retainer on the LHS floorboard to stop his foot sliding off and a kick stand extension...which to answer your question was just a simple bolt on piece of aluminum custom fitted and bent for his best access. Theres no issue with him walking the bike backwards. Sorry I cant be more helpful.

    Not exactly a kickstand, but might be worth considering:


    Also, electric push button shifter:


    And auto clutch:

    Thanks @ratpick,

    The landing gear option is very expensive even in USD (without shipping costs to AU). The Aussie exchange rate sucks.

    With Glen’s help from Morgan and Wacker (Brisbane). I going to try a jiffy stand extension for a Dyna on my Road King. Photo to come. 

    The Pingel kit does look great but alas they aren’t water proof (confirmed by Rollies) and I’m an all weather rider so I have a Kliktronic unit on order. I will need to fabricate my own mount for the actuator so that will be an interesting exercise. It’s a shame Pingel doesn’t sell their mounting kit seperately.
