Side Stand

First off, I am almost 80 years old. The side stand on my 2012 Stryker seems to be at a much grater angle than any of my previous motorcycles.

It is difficult for me to lift the bike off of it, especially when there is a little tilt to the parking area. Has anyone modified the side stand to make the bike more up right when parked?

Had this on my VTX when it was on two wheels. May work for the Stryker also. And by the way, the VTX leans way more than the Stryker. One trick I learned was turning the handlebars all the way to the right before trying to lift.

Would a lowering kit help?
