I'm a new rider so I don't know if it's a common thing but I've been caught a couple times trying to put her in first gear with the stand down and the engine shuts off. Thank you Yamaha for protecting morons like me :)

Most, but not all bikes have that safety feature. I bought a new Roughhouse scooter that would run with the side stand down. Apparently it is not a law in the US that the engine stop with the kickstand down and the bike in gear. Sure is a good safety feature though.

I've watched Harley guys ride away with a sidestand down. Probably not going to be a happy ending on the first left hander.
