Many people feel that the RT's sidestand is less than adequate and worry about the extreme lean angle that the bike on the sidestand - especially when the bike is fully loaded.

On the other hand, I have not heard of bikes falling over either.

The RT-P has a different sidestand that is more robust and longer than the stock one.

Sinking is a problem for the sidestand in soft dirt or hot blacktop. There are several solutions listed in Improve Footing.
