good input.Yes. When you are putting the stands on, with the kickstand down put the rear stand on first, this will stabilize the bike as you put the front on.
When taking them off, start with the front, then the rear, also have your kickstand down for this part.
I usually do the first/last part of lifting the rear stand with my foot while holding the tail of the bike, this way I can make sure it's going to lean towards the kickstand side, and steady it throughout.
LMAO! Guess thats a safe bet right there. Man coming down I just drop the kick stand, knock it off the rear stand while slightly leaning it left.Putting the bike on the rear stand was not a issue for me, I just did what everyone else on here said. Balance the bike with one hand then reach down and grab handle and youre done.
Getting the bike off the stand made me nervous though. I was afraid it would tip over opposite side of the kickstand.So I tired another way.(may not work for shorter riders)
To take the bike off the rearstand I sit on the bike while its still on the rearstand. Then I place the heel of my left foot on the stands wheels so it can not move forward. Then I lunge the bike forward and off the stand, modulating the speed it comes off the stand with the front brake. Bike comes off the stand and I am left sitting on the bike.
