A good friend of my son's come up today with him.
He owns a GL 1500 and was telling me how to get the bike on the center stand. Maybe mine only, I didn't even know whathis bikewas now.
I have been told on this form how to put the bike on the stand before, and they were correct; but I missed the "ROCKIN" part.
He showed me exactly as I was previouslyinformed on this site as how to hold the bike and whateverl.
But on my first attempt after he showed what I call the "Rocking Procedure".
Up She Came.
What this amounts to;after getting the proper hold and the correct down pressure with the foot.
Apply increasing amount of downforce on the foot as well as up and back force with the hands; about the third attempt ,"Rocking". Ya Got It.
Thanks, Hope That This Might Some One.
This 71 Year Old Fart Just May Be Trainable; I'll let ya know later when I try it again.
