All the parking lot comments add up to one thing...

Approach bike on right side(opposite of kickstand) and lift heel to step over seat. The key is to step straight over the seat and not "swing" the leg. Fully loaded ADV bike guys use this technique since there is no way to swing a leg over the top box or tent/sleeping roll. Keeps any scuffs on the leather under your butt, instead of on the finish.

Can't find pics or vid to show...
