I've had mine for about 2 years, and put the wing on it yesterday. I made some 8" wide platforms for each side, so I would have a place to put my feet when I ride it onto the lift. Lately, I've been walking it up on the lift, with the engine running. I'm 66, and not a strong man, by any means, but I can feather the clutch at idle and walk beside the bike as it moves up the ramp. My 650 V-Strom just gets a good push to get it on the lift.
I use a piece of rubber under the screw jacks to keep it from sliding on the concrete floor and a piece of rubber mat under the center stand for the same reason. It's a pain getting the bike situated to pull the rear wheel out through the opening.
