Uh...Ducati's kickstands are notoriously too short, not too long.wow... 2 reasons I speculate that happened. #1 the wind pulled the first bike over because it caught ahold of the bike cover and the subsequent domino effect ensued. #2 This was made easier due to Ducati's notoriously too long kickstand.
I would get a BMW if I was looking in that area?? Although I know nothing about the ST3.
