Mounting with cases

I have the Shad top case and side cases. The only way I can mount the bike is with a little hop with my left foot and slide my foot/leg across the seat.
If I don't have the top case installed I can swing my right leg over the side cases. Anyone else have more suggestions when both hard side cases and top case
are installed?


Thanks!

If you can trust the side stand, you can lift on the left peg and pass you right ove the seat.

Otherwise, the "Chuck Norris side kick" is the only way i can do it.

Not sure anyone will now trust the side prop stand, until there is a repair done to it.
I like your analogy to the Chuck Norris side kick technique.
That's my way, but I usually have to grab my right leg with my hand to help it get over the saddle.

getting a running start helps!

i have that issue also, lifting leg up it comes just shy of high enough to go over. (getting old sucks)
I put left hand on left end of bar and facing backwards bend forward while sticking right leg backwards then quickly raise up right while swinging leg forwards like you are kicking game winning goal while also twisting left gets the right leg up plenty high enough to clear the seat.

with a bit of practice it can be done quite quickly and smoothly.

Right! I'd be on my butt in a heartbeat at my age. I'll stick to the hand-assisted lifting of the right leg over the saddle. It may look feeble but it works and nothing falls over in the process.
