Neat centre stand trick.
 
.

Would not work with my 1500, rear wheel is off the ground.

I do that all the time with any bike that has a center stand,


only, the rear tire is not usually on the ground.


I just lean back in the seat, then swing my body forward fast and let momentum carry the bike forward off the center stand and go....


do it every time I take it out of the shop, lean forward fast, drop off center stand, and lock front brake.


hit reverse, and back out of the shop.


when getting fuel, I just release the clutch and drive off.

Pretty sure that's the ride off center stand. My 1800 won't do that. I can rock forward and go immediately, but not that easy nor back up onto the stand. The only complaint I've heard is it's makes it difficult removing you rear wheel without laying you bike down.

It is a ride off centre stand, I have one on my 1500 & it also makes it very easy to put on the main stand,I kept the old stand if I need to swap it as it only takes 5 mins to swap back.

It's not getting off the centre stand that I was referring to. It's using reverse to put it up on the stand.

neat trick, and at
Price: $179.00



would be something to consider if my legs get too weak...

I was lucky & got mine new for $100 from a used parts guy that didnít realise what it was.
But it makes it easy to put on main stand just remember to leave it in reverse as both wheels are on the ground.

I had one for an 1100 that was a self leveling stand but it had some missing parts. The legs retracted so you could put it down while sitting on the bike, it had a lever on the right side where you used your foot to ratchet it up and as it did it would compensate for uneven surfaces.
