As a "young" 71 year old [6' 1.5 inches tall, 102 kg] I never sit on the bike to get it off the centre stand. As Coconut says, rock back, then push off stand with side stand ready to place it on. For me, it's the only way I've ever taken all my bikes off the centre stands in over 55 years of bike riding/ownership. Cheers.  :821: :158:

I'm not able to sit on the bike and rock it off the center stand - I'm 5'9" and my feet don't reach the ground.  I don't have a problem with standing to the side and taking it off the center stand.  I leave it in neutral.  The side stand is deployed, hold the left grip and rear left grab rail, rock the bike forward, once inertia is overcome and the bike is moving forward, I kind of pull back a little on the rail and handle bar and lightly pull it towards me.  Doesn't move more than a couple of inches.  I don't use the rear, lower handhold - it's a little too low for me and my back would rather I didn't...

For me, the "secret" is to remove the bags. Then, with lighter weight, the trophy gets up on the stand much, much easier!
A good man once told me, "Don't sell your bike. It's your soul."....

I'm fine with either method but I do tend to rock it off the stand after filling up with petrol due to the floor being slippery with diesel. The angle and conditions of the floor play a big part in this I feel, do what you feel is safer.

Brenchley, I have no doubt judging by his skill level that he could. The hard part would be lining up the under pipes weld nipple with a bottle jack, or a flat plate jack. Maybe you could contact him and offer your Trophy as the test bike. Just saying.  :745: :745:
