I just "taught" Chickenman how to get his (new to him) Goldwing up onto the center stand...
Push down with your full weight in this center stand/"lever" - steady the Bike and lift...
Lift directly above the centerstand, while pushing down/standing on the leverage of the center stand and your lifting to "separate" the two...
Hopefully I chose the right words here...
Not much lift required, really...
More pull the Bike back onto it really...
^^EDIT^^
Yeah he asked excitedly, ""How`d you do that?"" when it looked as simple as it is... :D

I'm trying to recall my years with my Kaw KZ900 which had a center/ maintenance stand. If I remember right, stand somewhat square facing the bike use your left foot on the stand peg and push down so the stand makes even contact with the ground surface and then pull back on the bike to lock the stand in place. I remember using my right foot instead one time and lost the balance.

If ever you need to fight the bike and really rag and pull at it, you're doing it wrong.

Good advice above!

I'd also add that you should make sure it is actually on its 2 feet before begining the lift, just to be safe so give it a little "rock" check first.
