Ever Checked Your Main Stand ?

Wonder how many people, like me, assume everything is OK under your bike when on it's main stand. Just noticed the outer bush seemed farther away from the frame and found both sides were not tight. Never checked them in the past 5 years and I guess they looked ok when I cleaned the bike. Even on a service they are in use so unlikely to be checked as they are supporting the weight so would appear ok.
Good design, bush has two O rings holding in any grease and held in place by allen key headed bolt from inside, probably worth checking any bike with a mainstand, consequences of coming completely undone on one side while on the move could be catastrophic. Mine's an R1200st  but I guess any bike with a bolted on mainstand is worth a look just in case.
