Eddy!! Your pan euro should have a piece of metal that will swing down from under the rear swing arm. Use your toes to lower that piece of metal and you will discover that it will prop up your bike very well.
Ankles need not apply

Cheers

A right hand side lay down for a rest would indicate to me an un balanced diet.
What are you feeding the old girl??
Did you have an extra pair of socks in the right hand Pannier??

According to Anne it is ME that is unbalanced not the bike ???? well if thats true says I it is living with you for 47 years that has caused it , now you might say that that was not a wise thing to come out with when she was so close !!!! a heavy hand that one let me tell you ,mmmmm age and foolishness comes to mind , salt dust was the cause of lack of traction mmmmm not a happy chappy and not a happy Dexter he just cant understand why hi mate is not taking him for his walks ??

salt dust is no excuse for not walking Dexter!!
LOL
You must indeed be in pain if Dexter is not getting his walks. Sad
get yourself a 4 wheeled rideabout till your Ankle heals.

So was your reply-yes dear-very nice...but how do I both it on the camper?
Stiff?sounds like you need decent pain meds and possibly some physioterrorsim and maybe some rice (rest/ice/compression/elevation before you start thinking I'm talking about food)
