Helper ramp for centerstand

Post by marsman »



I've noticed a number of sites talk about difficulty getting big touring bikes on the centerstand. When I had a BMW K1200LT I made a little ramp to help with getting it on the centerstand, and now I use it for my GL1500 with sidecar. See a demonstration video here:

A lot easier than going to the gym until you look like Schwarzenegger.

I'm surprised that you need that ramp for the 1500.
You look a lot bigger than me in that video.
I find my 1500 to be quite easy to put up on the stock centerstand.
On the other hand, my '76 Wing, which weighs quite a bit less, is
damned near impossible to get up on the center stand.

The sidecar makes the GL1500 much harder to get on the centerstand.
