During a motorcycle show in New York, a women demonstrated how easy it is to pick up a fallen Harley-Davidson motorcycle from the ground. These bikes can weigh far over 600-pounds, so dead lifting a fallen bike can be quite the difficult task…unless you know what you are doing of course!
This simple technique will work with any motorcycle!
You simply rest your bottom on the seat, grab the handle bar with one hand and rest your other hand on the fender. Using your leg muscles, you gently rock and push the bike up. Once the bike is partially up, you re-position yourself on the seat, and then push back using your legs. The bike will slowly return to the upright position!
Voila! It’s easy as that!
This is definitely a simple and smart piece of knowledge to have if you are ever out riding alone and your bike ends up on its side.
