any ideas on the slippery garage floor for a 650 that slides when you rock it?
Do the Harley Thing and park it on a rubber backed throw rug...and feel lucky the rug ain’t full of oil.

Welcome to the forums Ingmar.

I had this issue of the bike sliding forward on a Ferry steel deck. I would shove and shove but the center stand feet would just slide. I had to have two fellow riders lift slightly on the passenger handles while I push forward.

You could try putting a thin door mat under the feet to see if that helps.

Stand alongside the bike with side stand down, hold grab handle in right hand, hold rear brake on firmly with left hand then heave the bike forward. It will pivot off the centre stand then stop dead when the rear wheel hits the floor. Mount bike, kick up side stand, start engine, ride away.
