Default Brake Lock - Parking Brake farkle

I used to ride a Honda agriculture bike on my Dad's farm, a CT200. It Had an automatic clutch and the back brake was operated by either a foot or the left hand. Both front and back brake levers could be locked on. These were very useful whenparking the bike in rough ground. It also had two side stands (one on each side). With the weight of the ST there are times when being able to lock a brake on on the ST would be an asset. Has any body developed or know of a farkle to do this?

Velcro strap around the brake handle to the grip.

At one time somebody marketed a lock for the front brake that released when the brake handle was pulled. I think it was from down under.

And on ST1300A's, the front brake also locks the rear brake... or maybe that's only when moving. And the rear brake always applies some front braking - but somehow balancing a brick on the foot pedal seems awkward.

That is what Duck tape is for. It is designed to hold a brick in place.

I remember one made in limited quantities by a small shop in the UK, but it only fit 1100's. I think somebody tried to adapt one for their 1300 without much success,

I use hook and loop on my brake lever, when testing lights.

Wouldn't want to leave it a lot, though, for fear of damage.
