Well I finally got my new R6s about a week and a half ago. I'm planning on driving it to work to save on gas, but I got a problem. I work at a Resort in Vermont and they're strict with parking and wont let employees park in the parking lot, they have to park out back on the grass. I was wondering what the best thing to do to make sure the bike is stable?

I was thinking of getting one of those slate flat stones to use.
Yeah the roads here are fun, I commute from across lake champlain bridge, so theres some good riding over here as well, to lake placid and lake george.

I have a square chunk of hardened plastic 5"X5" about 1" thick. My brother cut it for me works perfect and you can store it under the rear seat.

or find an old bench grinder and take the plastic shields of, small enough to put under the seat but yet enough support for the bike.

If it's on grass, you might want to have something that will actually dig into the ground, put a couple teeth on the bottom or something. Depending on what time you start work, the dew could get you.

you can smash a coke can on its side to put under the kickstand. As long as the ground is not soft like after a rain it will work. We do it all the time at the drag strip when we are parked in the grass instead of the staging area and pits.
