Get her tanked up

Approaching silently from the rear, gently caress her seat and tail piece untill the clutch becomes damp. Swiftly lift your leg over, give her a good kicking up and ride away.

Works for me, every time.

Yours, lonely of Derby

Alternatively

you could have one leg amputated below the knee, preferably your right leg cause then you can still change gear.

Sky, fossil

1st floor window or right leg amputation sounds like a plan, i was worried about toppling the bike p.s. how the f**k do you get back off? it is quite a tall bag :huh:

I know

that the 'leg out straight in front of you' method is favoured by 'R100R' - He always 'goose-steps' onto his BMW anyway. :tongue:

Options:

1.  Use right arm to lift right leg, and then place right leg on seat.  Hop sideways until bum finally on seat.  This will make you look stupid.

2.  Buy some high platform boots, to gain extra altitude and simply swing leg over.  Since you are not a girly, this will make you look stupid.

3.  Take a running leap at bike, raising leg at last minute.  Pray that bike doesn't go over.  If it does this will make you look stupid.

4. . Park near small wall, and use it as a step.This will make you look stupid 

5. Buy smaller tail pack, and take less stuff.  This will make you look like a cool dude. :tongue:

getting your leg over

being careful you can stand on the left peg and raise your leg high enough to get it over, or the goose stepping approach works as well.

 

As for getting of I reccomend the side stand down stand ing up on the pegs and easing off gently approach.

 

Or you could take Lass up on the offer of a demo as long as you get it on video as we can all see her "method".
