Hello fellow Members, I just bought a 2005 Gold Wing online last month. I read in the manual, to do alot of the service checks, the wing should be placed on the Center Stand. This is REALLY difficult. Can anyone give me some pointers?
At 1st putting the wing on a centerstand is very intimidating I must admit. Practice, practice, practice & it becomes second nature.
Here's what I do. #1 always wear my boots, #2 make sure I am on good level surface ie: garage floor or driveway(if somehat level), #3 I leave my sidestand down as precaution in case I lose footing or grip. #4 standing on left side of bike I put my right foot on center stand step, bring it down til it contacts ground, #5 while stepping hard on centerstand to engage pickup on passenger seat handle with my right hand. #6 Viola bike on center stand.
Hope this helps & a big welcome from Pa to the forum.
