I keep a 4" x 4" piece of plywood in my tankbag for this very reason. Can throw it down on loose surfaces an not worry of a tipover.

1. Take a breath and keep calm
2. Watch videos on techniques
3. If needed wait for help

I ride solo alot...I think #1 is most important.
I use a double wall outlet aluminum cover attached to 550 paracord. I attach the cord to the handlebar, throw the plate down and rest the side stand with foot extension on that. 2.00 at any hardware store.

The cord keeps me from driving off and leaving it on the ground somewhere.

With a REALLY bad back ( 4 lumbar discs shot and one emergency surgery to recover use of my left leg ...) and two new hips, the first farkle purchased for my GSA was a Dustriders lift from ADVMotorrad. I hope I never have occasion to need it as I really like my pretty ride not (yet) mangled, but I plan to haul it around at least on long solo trips.
