Have had a few bikes and never could understand why the sidestand is on the left side. I understand that in many places in the world, they drive on the left side of the road so the bike would lean more with the bank of the road when on the sidestand but driving on the right side makes the bank of the road work against the lean of the bike when on the sidestand. I'v had to park in a few places where the bank of the road was so great that the bike was literally vertical when on the sidestand. Heck, we manufacture a lot of our cars with the gas filler cap on the wrong side just so they will be more acceptable for export to different countrys. Can you even convert the Shadows to right side sidestand? I have seen a couple bikes leaning to the right when parked but they wern't Honda's and was just driving by so couldn't check them out.
