I feel like an idiot, having to ask this, but is there a secret to getting the quick release sissy bar off the 1300 tourer? I unlocked, pushed in the two levers but cannot get the bar to budge, either forward or backward. If I'm not mistaken, it must release from the rear first which means I need to lift/push the sissybar toward the front but this isn't working. I know I'm old but I didn't think I was so weak I couldn't do this.

Any suggestions? I have seen an illustration of how to remove the sissy bar but cannot find it now.

EDIT: Found the instructions. You have to look for the Delux (tourer link is bad) but same as the tourer
