Can't take a paddock stand on tour, but a normal car jack folds flat and is ease to pack. This is the 2018 XRX Low. The side stand is holding it on one side and the car jack is under the mounting poimnt for the absent centre stand. The back wheel's just off the ground for lubing the chain and checking the tyre for nails. Its nicely balanced so I can check the front tyre like this too. You could probably drop either wheel out by this method if you needed to change a tyre. 8.99 on ebay.

Triumph do not recomend it because the ground clearance is to low. By the time you get a rider (and maybe a passenger and luggage) on the bike you would be scrapping the stand on almost every corner.
It is no help on the road but for home just get a paddock stand.
This.  You might get a cut down stand to fit on the bike, But ground clearance would suffer.   You Really do NOT want hard parts dragging in a curve😏
