I've had my LT now for about four months and still have problems getting it on the center stand. DiverDan showed me how to do it and he is a lot less weight than I. To me the big safety problem is in the narrow design of the center stand. The first time I tried to do it my LT fell into the wall and snapped the windshield off. When standing on the left side and it starts falling to the right you can't stop it! Steadying the bide on both feet is a real task for me. "Therefore," I seldomly use the center stand. But I guess it's just like the old saying goes, "Practice makes perfect!" Good luck.
Have you dropped your LT yet? I've dropped mine about seven times already but no damage except to my pride.
