I agree with everything you said. BMW stands are terrible too, or at least they were.

On my trip south a few weeks ago I pulled into a rest area, put the jiffy stand down, started to walk away and I saw the bike starting to roll a bit. The parking area was flat as could be but for some reason the bike started to move. I caught it just in time before she started to roll to the point of falling over. I know I kicked it down all the way before I got off!! So now whenever I park my Sporty I put the jiffy stand down and put it in gear. When I come back to the bike and start it up I pull in the clutch.
Common sense tells me to leave it in gear. No one told me to do so.
