It's true you can sometimes get injured kickin' the Ol' girl but hey, do what this guy did 'have crutches will travel'.
There is even a step-by-step instructional webpage to help you out if you've never kick started a scoot.
The King never had a problem kickin' it Ol' Skool, and it's a Sporty to boot (they are notoriously difficult, finicky if you will, to start).
Check this dude kickin' his 75' Shovel. It's a flame thrower when he's not ridin' it.
