    Ah, explains your T4 forum name?


    Not to hijack your thread Raybear, but yes, T4 is the worst of my three crushed vertebrae. Don't recommend the process as it results in chronic pain 24/7. Not enjoyable, and makes me a grumpy old cunt (which is why I don't post a lot).
    Only Guzzi I ever owned was a SP1000, and I wish I'd never sold it :(

    Yes, would be difficult after that sort of injury. 
    Glad you have found a way to keep riding bikes, both for the fun and more importantly for the escapism that it brings.

    I think almost all of us have a story of a bike we should never have sold!

    Look after yourselves out there lads; you never know what you have until it is gone, Will

    A friend came over from England and hired bike from Eaglerider in Sydney,  was shown to get on bike from right side, by putting right foot on board, standing then put left foot over. Hold front brake on while doing it.  This was on a Heritage. 
      Like he owns a few bikes back in UK and knew how to get on bike, but this was easier when full of luggage

    Benno, easy, while the bike on side stand, approach it from the Carb side or Injection if EFI, step on running board or foot peg or what ever, then just step over the bike & sit down.

    That sounds a bit dangerous to me KK . I am assuming you mean the right hand side?Dont know why you had to get so  technical about  Right Hand Side but anyway.  If the bike was on the side stand on level ground it would probably be ok but wouldnt it depend on how heavy you are? If you were a big fat cunt I reckon you would pull the bike over on top of yourself. That would be fucked.

    If the bike wasnt on dead level ground it might come over even easier.
    If I hadnt drunk 8 beers I would be outside experimenting with this technique.

    BB bit late, yeh , but most Harleys all have carb on same side. But walk towards your bike from the front.

    Yeh that’s true, it was a suggestion. Anyone heavy enough to over balance, stepping on right side foot peg to step over a bike with top box. They could possibly break the side stand stepping on the left side. I take it as a joke from BB! But have to agree I went the long way around to explained it. Oh well.
