Its pretty easy if you remember to not try to LIFT the bike onto the center stand. Stand next to the bike and leaving the side stand down for safety, just press on the center stand to get both resting points on the ground. Then step on the center stand pedal, pushing straight DOWN. The bike will lift itself up onto the stand. I find it a bit unsteady to take it off the centerstand while seated on the bike, so I just rock the bike forward off this stand, rest it on the side stand, then mount the bike.

I roll my bike backwards about a foot and while rolling, step on the pedal while continuing to move the bike backwards. Then I stop it rolling so it doesn't slam onto the stand (possibly breaking it?). In reverse I put the side stand down and, standing beside it, roll the bike forward off the center stand and gently let it rest on the side stand.
p.s. when putting air into the rear tire at a gas station I have learned to put it on the center stand. Too easy while hugging the rear tire to move the bike forward when only on the side stand. It makes a big sound as it falls over onto its side.

I put mine on the center stand almost all the time. I don't know why but I don't like the side stands. I guess it makes me feel like the bike is going to fall over. When I bought my new Silverwing I had the guys at the service area work with me so that I learned how to do it the right way. As a women I know I'm not as strong as the guys. They said always keep the side stand down while you are doing it. Point your toe toward the back of the bike and push down. I rock it a bit while I'm doing that. I have gotten it off the center stand while I'm on the bike but I really have to rock and I think it looks a bit silly Embarassed When I'm getting it back down I rock it a bit and have my hand on the brake so as it comes down I can stop it.

Well it is very easy to put the bike on
the centerstand. The first poster is the
way i do it. BUT let me stresss to you
if your shoes are wet do NOT put the
bike upon the stand. Let it stay
on the side stand til the ground
or cement drys up. I have had this
happen 2 times with my swing and the
2 times were right after somone
had washed there truck or i had just
washed my bike and went to get
gas. Out of the 9 scooters that i have
had over the yaers. The only one
that fell over off the stand was
the swing.:-( It is easy to take off
the stand while siting on it. I rock
it once or twice without no
problems.
Hope this helps ya some from the
good people of the swing world.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

I don't have any trouble putting the Swing on the centerstand but I'll tell you how I did it with a Gold Wing and maybe that will help. Put a piece of wood, about 3/4 inch thick, in front of the rear wheel and one in front of the sidestand. Start the bike up and run the back tire up on the wood then put it down on the side stand which will now be on the other piece. Get off and then raise the bike as you normally would. This was just enough for the rear tire of the Gold Wing to clear the wood and I only had to lift the bike about 1/4 an inch. You might have to try a different thickness of wood. This works if you're home, I don't know if you want to carry the wood around with you.

SWing'ers with darkside tires found it easier to put on the centerstand from the increased height of the darkside tire.
