I'm sure that the ones I purchased were before the '08 manufacturing window dates for that recall.
That being said, my wife mounts the bike, with me on the side watching, by placing her weight on the rider's pegs and handlebars and then sliding back to the pillion seat, before placing her feet on the boards, so, she never put her entire weight on the boards.
I then get on after she's set. On dismounts, I get off first and then she swings her right leg over the empty front seat and, with my assistance, slides off the bike.
For you safety Nazis, who may think that the bike may slide forward, we've been doing this procedure since 1988 with our then '88 Wing.
