Usually done by a 130 kg fat bloke standing on the right hand side of the bike, and then leaping 4 feet in the air doing a half pike summer-salt and ploughing their entire weight onto the poor bloody kick starter and centre stand in some over exaggerated theatrical rubbish designed entirely to impress some random person walking past who couldn't give a rats about the bike and in reality is staring at their girlfriends arse.

These things really aren't that hard to start.
