Kickstand Kritters: Curiously Classy

06/23/2010 @ 9:06 am, by Jensen Beeler8 COMMENTS

Have you ever tried to park your motorcycle on a soft surface like grass or gravel, only to watch your kickstand sink a hole into the ground deeper than British Petroleum? Neither have we, afterall who would admit to doing the two-wheeled yoga routine that’s involved in finding a piece of wood (or other suitable weight distributor), while balancing a sinking motorcycle? But in case this phenomenon has “happened to a friend of yours”, we’ve stumbled upon the solution to your “friend’s” problem. Cue the Kickstand Kritter.

Just in-case you haven’t pieced it together yet, the Kickstand Kritter is a stuffed plush toy, that has a hard disc center that’s ideal of dropping your kickstand on while parking on uncertain terrain. The result is a motorcycle that doesn’t look like the Leaning Tower of Pisa when you arrive back to it, and there’s a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor going on as well here.

While the frog, poodle, bunny, and voodoo mummy may not appeal to Ducati owners, who have been scientifically proven to lack a sense of humor, they Kritter assortment is sure to be an eye-catcher at the local bike night for the rest of us. We have it on good authority that Colin Edwards has recently modeled for his own Kickstand Kritter plush, while at the British GP…now wouldn’t that be something?

    “may not appeal to Ducati owners, who have been scientifically proven to lack a sense of humor”

    If they make one out of carbon fiber and price it at triple what the others cost, there should be a market for Ducatisti… ;)

    Would be awesome, but not for $20… Especially since it’ll probably either get torn up from use or stolen by summer’s end.

    The company is called BP. They haven’t gone by British Petroleum for years, not that yanks looking for someone outside their own country to blame for the oil disaster would understand that. Deepwater Horizon was owned and operated by Transocean (a US company before they moved to Switzerland to avoid paying US taxes) and Haliburton were involved too but we rarely hear them blamed.

  • brit – BP’s the biggest problem in the cause of this disaster and they are the entity making it worse. They’ve known how much oil has been gushing from Day1 not because of any concern for the thousands of businesses in the US, Mexico, Cuba, Bahamas, etc…. or for any environmental concern, but because they know how much money they are losing (as well as trying to minimize fines).

    Why the F did they not supply high resolution footage when it happened? It was day 50+ when they supplied that footage & scientists needed that info. in order to get the whole Gulf to respond adequately.

    Accidents happen. The difference is how a company responds even for those companies with deplorable track records. In this case BP’s response took this incredibly horrible disaster and have somehow made it exponentially worse. So, your comment is minute in comparison to what should have happened in the early days of the disaster and what should change soon.

    I think those kick plates are brilliant!

    Congratulations; you now know one Ducati rider with a sense of humor. But I broke the mold some years ago … Not sure which mold, if it’s figurative or literal … Regardless, there’s something the matter with me.

    Muhaharharhar hehehehe.

    Yup, I can see that rabbit stuck under my stand. Would prefer a kitten.
