Bruce, I think that is a heated grip and not a left hand throttle.
Marcus used to take this bike with him wherever the banana boats took him. The front frame of the rear stand is a standard item with what looks like a second stand brazed or welded behind it, braced by fore & aft tubes. The main stand then has a plate attached for welding to the deck. It would then need an angle grinder to cut it free after landfall, When the stand is up the back bar is between the panniers and above the number plate. When the stand is dropped to the ground this bar is horizontal and downward pressure will cantilever the bike into the position illustrated. Marcus tells me that when fully loaded he can stay on the bike while Christine deploys the stand, easily lifting him and the bike into the parked position.
