Maybe he should add 2 more wheels , A/C, roof, steering wheel and call it a car.
If you keep your training wheels on you'll rely on them and never become confident in slow turns or handling the bike at slow speeds.
Regarding the center stand, I only use it for maintenance and I don't miss anything else.
But to each his own.

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

I'm thinking its for the end of your Goldwing riding lifespan not the beginning.

I had one o my 92 Wing. As Bill in UK said, both wheels are on the ground so either leave it in reverse or put it in gear other wise you will find it on the ground.

First time I witnessed that 'trick' was 1976 at a Honda dealer where I was buying my first new road bike...1976 Honda 550-4 SuperSport. The mechanic did it while moving my bike out to the lot. The rear wheel on the '76 was off the ground so just give it throttle, let go of the clutch and rock the bike rearward. No special equipment needed, geez.

After I put one on my 92 I went to the Honda shop for something. When I got there 2 mechanics were siting outside on their lunch brake, I put the bike in reverse and rode up on the stand, you should have seen the look om their faces, they never knew about a ride off stand, and I don't think I ever told them either.
Back in the mid 90's we went to Marysville Ohio and toured the Honda plant. Those guys who rode the wings off the dyno at the end of the assembly line rode them to staging area and did ride them up on the center stand, that was a sight to see.
