My issue is the position of the nearside RTP pannier which does not allow you to put your foot and leg directly over the the centerstand. This means that the bike has to be hauled up without any body weight assistance. Even removing the crashbars does not help. Demounting the nearside pannier solves the problem but is not really an option in daily use
I really, truly, don't find my job bike any more difficult than my personally owned RT - foot on the stand, & up she comes. Use the pannier mounting as a hand grip.
