Short legs... Cant reach stand. '10 FLTRX

Bike is a 2010 FLTRX.

I have no problem putting the kickstand down. But my short legs cant reach it to pull it back up. I gotta really stretch around the floor board to get it. I don't feel comfortable doing acrobats on an 800 pound bike!

Has anyone else dealt with this? Does Harley offer a fix for us 5'10 short legged crowd?

I did a search and the brand name Jiffy kept coming up, but I couldn't find a pic, I don't really understand what it is?

Inexpensive is best.

There are plenty of cheap "extensions" for the kickstand. probably around 40 bucks.
and jiffy stand is just what harley calls the kickstand.

I'm sorry, but I'm still trying to picture 5'10" having problems reaching the jiffy stand. I'm 5'8", I guess my legs are longer. What about the seat height, is it ok? If not, montubes, a different seat, and shocks will be on your list soon.

That reminds me of a friend I know, he can use duct tape to fix almost anything, I once saw him use duct tape to fix a flat tire on a bicycle, lol.

I admire you for not settling with something smaller than a glide despite your leg reach!

If you go this route, make sure you use this, so you won't void your warranty:

Haha funny.

Yeah I am not well proportioned. My torso is normal length, but my legs are just stupid short. I can reach the ground ok, but I cant reach forward enough to pick the stand back up.

Duct tape is out. I'm cheap, but not that cheap haha.
