Who's got the most muscles in their right leg? (in some cases left)

My buddys dad had a '73 Yamaha 360 and he claims that to be the hardest to start.
I think hands down it has to be my 95 XR 600. (No regrets the day that thing was trailered off)

Your father-in-law has a riding lawn mower with a kick start.

The most painful bike to kickstart was the 750 Norton. If the wrong piston of the twin was at TDC, it kicked back with a vengeance.
The '75 Goldwing had a removeable kickstart in the glovebox. Take it out with the bike on the centerstand and insert it. Then stand alongside the bike facing it and push down on the lever. It was about the worst design you could imagine.
My biggest mistake came 2 years ago kickstarting a KX250 without a boot. My foot slipped off the kickstart arm and the end of it raked up my shin bone. Several feet of sutures and 32 staples later the slice was put back together.
Moral of the story: Always wear a boot when using the kick start.
