I'm pretty sure I could do that, with four other guys helping me.

Back when I was young, I might have tried it.......not saying I could have done it with the wing, but like I said, young and dumb.

Yesterday, I did have to pull it way over on the side stand to get it off the centerstand though. I had changed the oil and gotten some on the bottom of the feet of the stand and it slid all over my carport. I was so worn out and hot and mad that I couldn't get it to roll off and had to go somewhere. Only thing I figure to do was to lean it over.

It worked but I didn't like having to hold the bike up and then stand her back up for sure. I had it on my bent legs which kept me from hurting myself, but an old man with bad knees, back and neck ain't got any business having to do what I did.

I've done it a few times with my 1100. The stand isn't the problem. It's having enough arse to pull if off. I'm 6 foot tall 250 pounds most of it muscle and it was no easy task.

Which brings me to my next question, how much weight will the side stand support before damage occurs.
I have a bad back and I tend to be short legged so I step up on my left floorboard on the 1500 when mounting.
As anyone can see by my picture's, I am good, real good at cleaning my plate.
So how much is too much on the side stand???

:coollep:This was my concern also, plus how many of us have that much room in or garages :?If I had that much room I would have another toy or mower in that space.

Tried it but could not make it work. does not mean it can't be done. Just means I couldn't do it and I don't have the patience to practice.
