- Apr 1, 2007Once you learn the tech the bike is easy to put on a center stand.
At 5'9 and above and with a 30" inseam you should be able to reach
the ground on mid sole. Those are my measurements as well.
Especially with loose clothing. There are a multitude of seats that
will give you that extra edge if you need to lower the ride a bit. I
will not lower mine. I am afraid of losing the ride of the bike. As
for your method of parking the bike you should be able to do it
sitting on the bike but if you do it the way you say you do there
should be no problem. The 900 weighs a bit less then the 1200 and I
manhandle mine (1200) on occasion but never by choice. I even once
brought it up from almost the ground with one leg once. I have the
memories of pain in my head for a life time. Ed
I usually never try and park my bikes while sitting on them (unless
