Mounting the 900 GT


Recommended Posts

On my previous two bikes (Africa Twin, BMW 1200RT) and some before that, I used to mount the bike by stepping on left foot peg and thus easily swinging my right leg over the bike. I am 72, so my body flexibility is not any more what it used to be.

Looking at the side stand and foot peg attachement on GT,  I am not sure if either  are sturdy enough to use this method. Couldn't see any comment on this in manual. Any consensus here on this mounting method?

Some people have reported that its fine to mount the FJ, and therefore presumably the 900GT in the way you describe. Probably not advisable with lots of luggage mounted though.

I'm "inseam challenged" so the dealer informed me that the "stirrup method" is the best way for me to mount the bike.  I've purchased a side stand footprint enlarger to increase stability during the mount.
