The trick to picking up a heavy bike, is to lift with your back, in a jerky and twisting motion.

No jerking or twisting needed. Put it in gear, back up to it, one hand on the handlebar pulled into the false tank, the other on the seat handle. Backup and lift in a smooth motion.

See this video of a young blonde lifting up a 1800.

Being one who likes irony (okay, sarcasm) I believe the above was meant as tongue in cheek. That fellow needs a small woman riding on the backseat to pick up his bike for him.

You forgot to mention that you need to keep your legs/knees completely out of the equation!

I rode the Stelvio on a bicycle in October but would love to come back and do it on a motorbike. A GW is a tad long and over weight for some of the tight switchbacks.

If you look close at the begining and then at the end of the video, there is a stream of some kind of liquid he is leaving.
