Parking your motorcycle or moped

When parking your motorcycle or moped, use your foot to push the kickstand down. Carefully lean the vehicle to the left to rest on the kickstand.

If your motorcycle or moped has a centre stand, follow these steps to park it:

  1. Stand beside the left side of the motorcycle or moped and hold onto both handgrips.
  2. Using your right foot, lower the centre stand until you feel it touch the ground.
  3. Balance the vehicle upright and use one hand to grasp the frame under the saddle.
  4. With your right foot securely placed on the centre stand, push down and back on the stand with your foot while pulling the motorcycle back with your arms. The vehicle should roll up onto the centre stand.
