    Don't ever get a BMW GS if you are having trouble putting the KTM on its center stand. My Father in Law has one and it is ten times harder than the katoom. I've been doing it in dealerships whenever I go just to sit on one and wish, and rolling it backwards, using the rear handle, and putting weight on the centerstand foot, and no problem at all. Maybe put a piece of carpet under the bike so the stand can get a better grip?
