- Apr 1, 2007John and others,
Thanks for the feedback so far.
I do have a few additional questions.
John, without your thick soled shoes and at a standstill (like at a traffic
light) are you able to have both feet on the ground?
I usually never try and park my bikes while sitting on them (unless they are
low and light like the new Bonneville). I generally put the side stand down,
get off the bike and then walk it back into a parking spot and the either
use the side or center stand. How difficult is the 900 Trophy to maneuver
this way? How difficult is it to put the bike on the center stand?
