Since we are already talking about side stands, this caught my eye a couple of weeks ago when it popped up in my email.  I love the common ground emails that Revzilla sends out, but in particular, this topic grabbed my attention since it makes sense, though I'm not sure I'm ready to try it out.

The premise is that if the side stand is beefy enough, you can balance the bike on it as you pivot it around like a dance partner.  



In my younger days, I'd have already tried it, but I've got two replaced hip joints and a right shoulder that needs replacement,  so I'm a bit tentative on taking it for a spin, literally.  But I am used to moving around some fairly heavy woodworking and metalworking machinery and in many ways it's like this, you find a balance point and exploit physics so you are not lifting the whole weight, just a fraction.  

I may still give this a try, just curious to see if this is something that folks have already tried out with a Swing?

I've seen it done many times and have even done it myself in the past.
But when you think it through, applying a twisting force on a folding pivot, there is just too much to go expensively wrong.

If you read the short article that went along with the video, he puts his foot on the folding side of the stand and spins the bike to his right which should keep the stand from folding.  

Here is a link to the article itself:  https://www.revzilla.com/common-tread/how-to-turn-your-bike-on-the-sidestand

SOL here for that maneuver looks like a neat trick to try, just not me and my swing.

I have seen people in a motorcycle showrooms move bikes around like this. It may come in handy one day if someone parks too near to you and you need to make a bit of room.

+1. I've only had to use this technique once because I had to ... and I'm sure glad I knew how to do it.

I believe it works, but I hope I don't have to prove it. Seems too much like; "Hey Bubba, watch this!" Laughing

So how hard was it to do? Did it take a good amount of muscle to get the bike up and pivot?  Inquiring minds want to know.

First of all, for context, I am pretty strong. Having said that, I found it quite easy as it is all about getting the balance right. The scooter's weight is carried on the side stand ... you just guide it around.
