Kick Stand placement

I'm a little concerned that with low ground clearance I might be rubbing my Kick Stand.I'm thinking about moving it back to where the rear Legs start to bend upwards.Is there any issues with stability or tipping with it mounted back there?

SELF INTRODUCTION: I was on the last board as bonustoolkit. I have changed that to my given name.
I started a project build there " File and Fit." I paln to continue that when I go back home in Dec. 2011. I first joined the board when Gary W had it in the year 2005. That was the time I really gained an interest in building chops. I have a long way to go, compared to some here.

It will probably work but it may be a PITA to hook it with your boot back there.

I have seen it done. I'm with Hans, deploying it may be a pain.
We can do anything, impossible just takes longer.
