I don't know of any side stands that retract automatically. That would be stupid. I think the officer needs a new line of work based on his lack of basic knowledge. As for the stand itself, keep all the pin and bushings in good shape and regular grease and it will serve you well. Gentle use helps too as it's not the most robust unit ever designed. The R model v rod has a more robust , conventional design of the bunch.
