Its easy to get it off - leave the side stand down, hold the handlebar with the left hand, hold the passenger grab bar at the back and pull the bike forward with a jerk using your body weight and towards you to allow the bike to rest on the side stand.   :305:

Sure.  Easy for you to do.

You're probably sober.    :063:

Low - brau - the last time I went on a ferry with my brother we were slightly early and the port was right next to a bar so he had a few beers  :164: - they parked him to my left and the last thing I heard through the intercom was aaaaaargh ! - Alcohol can sometimes make you forget you need to put a side stand down - never mind the centre stand...Oh I did laugh as I looked at the underside of an XR :008: :008:  :745: Shad panniers are quite strong though :)

I bet marc marquez wishes his Honda had a side stand  :745: :745: :745:
After over thirty years behind the bars, I’ve still not done it all or seen it all.

don’t think about lifting the bike up, think about pushing your weight down into centre stand. Use rear grab rail to steady yourself and give you leverage for pushing down.

Always found easiest way to get it off stand is to climb onto bike and roll it forward.

I push off but with foot on the stand with a bit of weight so once it’s down it still holds the bike steady and you don’t get that swing back clunk
