How on earth do you get it up onto the centre stand?

Are they any different from an RT, don't think so. But LMK if they are please.

I don't describe things well with the written word but will give it a shot for ya!

What I do is grab the clutch hand grip with my left hand, put the instep of my right foot on the center stand foot pad, grip my right hand on the hand hold down by the bottom of the seat. Push down with my right foot until the centerstand touches both of the stand pads, that makes it so it is not tilted one way or another. Then with one quick motion apply all my weight with my right foot on the stand while pulling up and back with left hand and up and right hand and just kind of glide it up and back onto the stand.

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.
