Cool chain help

when I had the bike on the stands I put her in first after I lubed the chain. The chain started rattling something fierce, like it was hitting something. So I put her on the side stand and took her for a quick ride around the block with the helmet off to see if the same sound was there - no sound. Is this normal? Slack levels are within prescribed limits

thanks for the help

Yes, that is what happens. No need to run the bike in gear on the stands like that after a chain lube.
