Getting the Trophy off the centre stand.
« on: March 31, 2013, 08:34:38 PM »
I've read that a few riders have been having a tussle getting the bike off the centre stand.

Here's how to do it, but it does takes a little practise.

When you can do it 2 up, the feeling is out of this world.  :062:

1. With the bike on the centre stand, sit on the bike and assume the riding position.

2. Start the engine.

3. Listen to the noise of that engine & wallow in the pleasure of owning a bike with this impeccable pedigree.

4. Compose yourself & concentrate. (This is very important)

5. Lean forward.

6. Engage 1st gear & release the clutch.

7. Wind the rev's to around 1500K or 2K if you like a challenge.  :008:

8. Now lean back in a brisk manner.  :156: :156: :156:

Useful hints & tips for this method.

1. Don't try it with the bike situated at the rear of your garage. It's important to have ample space either side of you.
2. Don't try this method 2 up until you can do it solo.
3. Make sure you are holding the bar's quite hard when you lean back.
4. It can get messy till you get the hang of it. Make sure you are insured. :005: :005:
5. When trying this for the first time, make sure you do it in a hospital car park.
6. If hint & tip No 5 is not possible, make sure you are very close to a hospital.

Let me know how you all get on with this please. Video & pics would be great for the forum.

Cheers

Could I suggest the instructions suggest more revs and pulling back sharply on the bars when leaning back. The resulting wheelie would be much kinder to the centerstand   :152:

Excellent post Caoimhin.

However, what you suggest is not for the novice or indeed, the faint hearted.  :005:

For those reasons I tried to keep guidence on the "rev's", on the low side.

On the plus side, using your starting method, I really think it would be possible to wheelie a shaftie.

Once again, excellent post & thanks for your input.

Cheers

Geez, Wscad, that's  :028:

Another way, more gentle.... if you pull both legs a bit longer, and turn up the music, you'll be able to rock it off the stand.
Don't grow up, it's a trap...
