Gary,So with the bike on the side stand you guys believe its impossible to mount from the right side using the foot pegs without tipping the bike over on top of yourself? Surprised two knowledgeable people like yourselves actually believe that.
not every one is as nimble as your are.
I got hit by a Semi truck back in 2008, and that has caused me to loose my balance at the slightest bit of "off balance".
When I climb up on my bike, I mean it literally: I climb up on it, pulling on the handlebars to keep myself from falling to the floor.... that accident destroyed the inner ear balance mechanism, and I can fall to the floor just walking down the hall in my home...... I have to hold onto the walls to keep from falling down.
So, quit professing that everyone can do what you can do......
the PO at 400 lbs would not be able to use the right side to mount up, the bike would be on top of him in a flash.... he has a real concern at wondering if the Pegs will hold him...
