I have one and use it with my 85 K100RS
I struggled getting it up on the stand - the inventor told me to run the rear wheel up on to a 3/4" plywood board, makes the process easier.
Getting it off - put the sidestand down, lock the wheels and rock forward, pulling it slightly towards yourself and resting it on the sidestand. I've had a couple of cases where the par-n-ride got jammed between the stand and the rear wheel.....
carefully get onto the bike, both feet on the ground and move it forward until it frees up.
"What follows is based on actual occurrences. Although much has been changed for rhetorical purposes, it must be regarded in its essence as fact. However, it should in no way be associated with that great body of factual information relating to orthodox Zen Buddhist practice. It's not very factual on motorcycles, either."
