    Quarterly reports are the scourge of the modern corporation. When he suggested he might take Tesla private Elon Musk said that doing so would allow him to focus on the long term instead of next quarter's report.

    Well... now that center stands are an option ($$$) why would you put on a handle?

    For the OP - you can always park on some small pieces of wood to elevate the front and rear wheels.

    Thumbs up k1200 up on center stand

But...after getting the "new" bike home, I went to place the bike on the centerstand and...no way! I tried muscling it up, tried every trick I could think of and ultimately dumped my "new bike" over on its right side trying to get the thing on the centerstand.

    I'm not a small guy (6'7" and 250) but I've NEVER had so much difficulty with a motorcycle. Sooo my question is, could there be a rear suspension issue that needs to be addressed that is causing the bike to sit lower than normal or is there something else I'm missing?

    I've had both knees replaced and am not as flexible as I once was, am pushing 68 years and don't want to have to sell this thing. I need some advice.
    Well Sir, have a 2000 K1200LTC, putting it up on the center stand is something you have to learn.

    Here is my cell # 6103494168. call me some time an I may be able to help. I also have both knees replace, as well as the left hip and my right shoulder.
