I have a question though. Since I cannot post yet on the technical part of the forum, I will post here. So, I am not that all guy, between 170 and 175cm tall. My question is, that the side stand will able to support my weight during mounting and unmounting the bike? It would make my life a whole lot easier.
I can tell you that I have had it on a bit of a angle on the side stand, grabbed the bars to pull myself onto it and had the weight of me and the bike on the stand. I am 90 Kg. , I also use a prop stand to lube the chain, so the weight is distributed between the prop, side stand and front tire. Since I have a Givi V56 top case and the trekker side cases, that is my method of mounting and dismounting. Not intentional but I got into a parking spot with a 30' slope, went to get off and the whole bike was going over on the stand, got back on the seat and moved the bike to a more level spot, BTW I have it lowered and the side stand is shortened.
