Do you really want people from this forum
to answer that question?
The responses are going to be interesting " />
**Climb over **
hold on to bars, lift bent leg, place over bike, sit down
you could jump out of a first floor window, like the cowboys did on to their horses
I thought u were gonna give some great insight then......
Ref ur tail pack....
- bike on side stand
- face the bike
- _then put ur foot out infront of u _****just placing it over ur seat
- then place bum on seat
Let me know if u need a demo
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.

you could have one leg amputated below the knee, preferably your right leg cause then you can still change gear.
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
**I know **
that the 'leg out straight in front of you' method is favoured by 'R100R' - He always 'goose-steps' onto his BMW anyway. " />
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. " />
If it ain't fun, don't do it
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".
I would love a demo of your mounting method" />
That is totally disgusting
Pushing in like that. Join the back of the queue
Few pints, smell good. pay that lass drinks and hope for the best

Going to leave this one alone.....
it to the wifes bike and let her worry about itafter all 90% of its hers
a mate of mine who was shorter than me (I'm only 5'7) used to have trouble getting on his CB500 with big givi on it, he would stick his knee on the seat and ease himself across. His other one used to be to park next to raised kerb so he could always hop on.
Ah hell I'm too childish to resist this title -
go to Newport on a Saturday night... " />
Dont take the tail pack and smell for a couple of days.......
back flip from in front of bike
works for me every time
side stand down, left foot down, lift right leg, hop sideways...
or in my case after many many hrs i tend to slide off in a heap
