Ok guys, Let me start by letting you know that I`m 5 feet 8 inches tall and weight 160 lbs against a 700 plus lbs bike and it really scares me if I`m sitting on the bike with no kick or center stand down then she hops on her left foot rest to get on it and puts lots of stress on me to handle the extra side weight and when she finally seats I`m putting so much counter weight to the right that the bike tends to go to the right since all her weight is allready off the left side. The wife is 5 feet 6 and not as heavy (pretty hot actually) (if I don`t put this on, she will kill me), any ways, any advice for her on how to get on the bike? will you guys get on it first? or after her? with center stand down? or side stand down? will apreciate any imput. Our other bike is a lowered stretched out hayabusa and is very easy to get on, and since this is our first big touring bike with no experience on it. will love to learn some tricks from the pros like you. Thank you all.
