Best technique for lifting DVT 1200 onto center stand

Hey all - 2016 Multi 1200s with stock center stand. I'm 6' tall, 150 lbs and have a really hard time getting the bike onto the center stand. Anyone have any good techniques (where to hold, what to leverage, etc.). Much appreciated!

my 2012 has a little fold out lever. you grab the lever, put your foot on the center stand kick stand looking thing and then lean back while yarding on the lever.

easy peasy

Same bike and similar stature. I get the bike vertical so both "feet" of the center stand are touching the floor. Place my right foot on stand pedal with my right hand on the passenger hand holds. While pressing with my foot I lift with my right hand. Sounds rather awkward when typed out but the motion is rather fluid and simple.

major pressure on the stand with your foot as well as a heave and a ho. my son can put my 1260s on the stand by himself using this method 6'2" @ 150 lbs
