Product Info

A pop can or other alternative doesn't come close to the strength or weight bearing support as the Bike Buddy. The thick, rigid, tempered plate will ensure your bike stays standing while the larger surface area can handle your bike's weight without sinking.

Plus it also eliminates the need for carrying any sharp objects in your jackets, leathers or baggage. 

The Bike Buddy fits all 4x7 and 5x8 license plate mounts.

The housing needs a clear area on the left for the plate to be accessible. Some bag supports interfere with this area as shown in the following images.

Other luggage bags don't have fixed supports like shown and will allow the Bike Buddy to be used effortlessly.

A "puck" is simply a plate, kickstand support or platform for your motorcycle kickstand to spread the bike's weight over a larger surface area on loose gravel, sand, dirt, grass, or hot asphalt. Basically any soft surface where your bike may fall over while left unattended.

We truly hope you don't. The bright shiny finish should catch your eye immediately, but if you do we sell our kickstand plates individually here. Shipping is fast and we'll get you a new kickstand plate in no time.
