"Moving horse method" = kickstand up , bike in gear, left foot on the peg, slip clutch to get moving stand up on left peg & throw right foot over..."moving horse"

Doing the "Chuck Norris" I'm always afraid i'm going to catch & rip the seat with my boot...
I always wanted to try this as I am a big fan of old western movies and I have seen other riders do it. Note to self: practice this (alone) next ride, on nice soft grass, if I can find it here in the desert.
2010 KTM 690 R (sold 12/11/12)
Previous bikes (way too many to list here and what's the point)
Been riding mostly off-road since 1960--began at age 14.
Watch this space as I am about to say something really prophetic!
