I've seen this done on an OIF using a passenger peg, and my K Beemer has a lift handle as stock.
But, my Trident is the easiest bike I have to get on the center stand. I can get it up while sitting on the seat.
Maybe I should mount a 19" rear wheel on the other bikes?
I agree with David that the Trident is my easiest bike to get on the center stand, it only takes a minimum of effort.
ont he other hand was always a struggle to place the bike on the stand.
I ended up by shortening the center stand of the Norton
by approx 3/4 of an inch, this gave a huge improvement.
The only drawback is that the tire of the rearwheel now just touches the ground, so I have to place the bike on a piece of plywood to remove the rearwheel., only a minor inconvenience imo.
I admit that with the tubular stand of the Norton
, this mod is easier to do than the Triumph stand.
