.... no I'm not talking a ballsy wristfull of throttle here ;)

For servicing etc. I've got a center stand so the rear wheel is pretty easy - but front wheel?

Load up the back with weight? Prop the front somewhere with a strong stick? Paddock stand?

Or is it just easier to put a scissor lift under the skid plate? Is the standard skid plate (or half of one) strong enough for a lift?

What are you lot doing to... erm.... get it up?

I just found somewhere low to attach an eye bolt in my garage, put her on the center stand and put a ratchet strap from the passenger handles to the eye bolt and ratchet it a bit, pulls the ass end down and the front end up, if you do it sparingly you can get both wheels off the ground

Drop the bash plate push her over a tree stump or similar object and use a truck ratchet transport strap to pull the rear down, As it was a long walk last time for the XRV so I keep one and a spare loop under the CRF saddle now.

Its served also as a tow for others with smaller tanks a couple of times too.

What's the orange strap bolted to your frame for @DELLA?

Clever luggage fixing?
