99-04 Center stand reminder
I happened upon a thread in the HoW about putting the LT on the center stand. Ron Miller advised using the left foot on the stand, facing the rear of the bike, getting both the stand's "feet" on the ground, and STANDING on the stand lever.
I had tried pushing mine forward, then pulling backward, while pushing down with my right foot. This usually got it onto the stand, but it "wallered" right and left. I thought this wasn't too good.
Using the left foot and pushing hard, the bike just sits like it should. Not nearly as difficult to do as before. Learning new techniques is GOOD!
I know this is in the HoW, but I thought some of our newer members, me included, might not see it.
