The man in the video, Paul "Trialsman" is the best parking lot slow rider I have ever seen. Could drag the foot pegs doing figure eights at not much more than walking speed.
Hope you heal quickly.

If you do it properly, how big you are is not an issue.

Technique is the issue.

I remember the first time I tried it using that method. I was amazed how easy it was. I have jerked mine off the ground a couple times with just brute strength before. That method is a LOT easier.

Wow that really stinks. Hope you recover fully. Back injuries are really bad.

I'm glad I have the height and the strength to lift the bike. Never had to use that reverse trick. If i did I'd have to have a helper catch it as I know is just dump it the other direction.

Wow‼ what a bunch of nice people that you are‼ I really appreciate your good desires, prayers and comments, I'm so glad to be here participating and sharing with you.
I've been riding a 1500 for last 17 years, and picked her up many times, sometimes made on purpose for practice.
But this time, the crash bar probably got into a ditch and as I said in first post she was lying flatter on her side and not much at an angle, which made it harder to lift her.
The only damage I could find is the clutch lever being a little bent from hitting concrete.

Dennis, I like your sense of humor, you always have something to say; hilted the nail.

MisticFour, congrats you're on the right track, keep on going.

My first marriage lasted 5 years, second 42 and counting; maybe I was too cower to give it another try…
Again, thank you for your support.

Mario
And still riding...
I just regrets the things I haven't done.

Back a few years ago, I bought a bike in Tampa, Florida....
The seller showed it well in all of the advert pictures, and he really did a great job of detailing all of the addons and condition....

Talked with him on the phone a few times..... but, is he a "good person" ??

I was lucky in that two of our forum members knew him and that bike personally and had ridden with him any times. They both vouched that it was as represented.... I got on an airplane and flew to Florida from Arizona.....

The trip back with that bike was truly great, took over two weeks because so many forum friends insisted that I stopped and visit "a while"..... some of them made me stay 3 and 4 days each..... and the tours they gave me of their areas? wow! awesome... I put 3,000 miles on that '98SE before it made it to Arizona and my home.

Now the story: I had a duffel bag with my clothes and gear, and did not like the way it hung out so far when laid down horizontal on the pillion seat.... so, I stood it upright, and lashed it to the backrest and side handles.....

an hour north of Tampa, as I was following a horse trailer, one of its' tires blew out, and the carcass came flying across the 4 lane highway and smacked my "new to me" bike... broke some small stuff, nothing important... but wow, the noise!

So, I pulled over to the edge of I-75 and got off... the edge of the road was sloping downhill, and the bike laid over to the right.... and it ended up much like yours, over so far it was leaning "downhill"..... I should have taken the duffel bag off, but thought "I can lift that"

Oh, I did, out of pure determination, but it took every ounce of strength my legs could push with to get it back up...... if they are loaded, take the load off first

OOHHH YES John, I also though that way, but remember that the years went by and the fact that I'm older than you!
Thinking back, I guess that I've had put more strenght into my arms than in my legs.
