The side stand on the 2015 model is definitely a bad design. On the day I brought mine home, I pulled over on the side of the highway to make a phone call and it almost fell over twice. Luckily I was standing there to catch it both times. I think it was the wind from passing trucks that caused it to roll forward. I immediately bought a center stand and it works great. I only use the side stand when my bike is in the garage, on a flat surface, with no wind or anything else influencing it. I only leave my bike idling when I'm opening and closing my driveway gates. On the way out, I pull the bike off of the driveway apron and into the road, and on the way in I pull the bike up onto the apron. This way the front wheel is slightly higher than the back wheel instead of vice versa. You do have to be very careful about where you park on the side stand, especially of you want to leave it idling. It's also a good idea to leave it in gear when parked as that will prevent it from rolling. HTH.
