For me this is a must. Changing tires or loading all the luggage on your bike is easier. Also when you have to park your bike somewhere where the ground is softer it also works much better than a regular stand. My friends bike touched the ground the first time, not because of a crash, no it was because his Africa Twin started rolling forward with the side stand. He directly bought the center stand than and warned me about this. I use the center stand 95% of the time.

Also I am not 100% about this clacking noise. Yes I noticed this noise in one of my videos, but it could be also come from the second key I have attached to the motorcycle main key or from my Givi Top Box.
