    Center Stand Helper

    Having trouble getting your bike up on the center stand?

    You can ride the bike's back wheel up onto a 1/2 or 3/4 inch section of plywood when you park it.

    This greatly eases putting the bike onto the center stand.

    Make sure the plywood section is long enough so the wheel stays on it as it rolls backwards during the lifting process.

    It also helps to have recommended or higher tire pressures.

    This is quicker and requires no packing of the wood. I've been doing it this way for over 40 years.

      I've seen you put it on the stand without getting off the bike.
      (this video looks like you're dry-humping the gas tank though)

    Haaa..try that with a fully loaded GS/A..😋


      Looks like a good way to drop your privates on the ground.
