Does an 1100 fall over like the 1800 does? Or does it go all the way down.. Haven't dropped mine, hope not too. I thought they fell over a lot farther... And then I can see picking it up and dropping it the other direction.. Could become a serious comedy act in a hurry...

I wanted to post a updated list of the videos, as there was another great demonstration by Trialsman at this year's (2008) Wingstock gathering. Paul also gets to show off his new RED 'wing by doing a burnout!

Notice that he kept the yellow helmet. Joe Jackson says that it looks like a bumble bee buzzing a tomato.

From 2007:
Moving the GL1800 without power:
320X240
640X480
Picking up a Dropped GL1800 (with demo - ouch!):
320X240
640X480
Placing the GL1800 on the center stand:
320X240
640X480
Riding the GL1800 on gravel roads:
320X240
640X480
Discussion of Slow Speed Tight Turns:
320X240
640X480
Slow Speed Tight Turn Demos (may not be suitable for younger audiences):
320X240
640X480


New and improved for 2008:

THE BURNOUT.............640X480

U - Turn Demos :
320X240
640X480

If you don't get the file the first time, try again!

Enjoy!

Very good clips and usefull info

I would like to add to the lifting of a dropped bike , A simple bungy cord wrapped around the brake lever will stop that front tire from rolling when you lift :waving:
Echo that!

Regarding the rolling on lift issue - just put it in gear or reverse?

Thanks for the video's. I can't wait for the warm weather to return so I can practice some of the things in the video's. Thanks for sharing. Not too keen on dropping my bike yet on purpose. :)

Just thought that I'd add a little to the discussion on lifting the dropped bike. This is now how I change the rear wheel out on my GL1800. I loosen the lugs, place a strip of old carpet scrap on the drive, lay her over on the carpet on the Stbd side, extend the center stand and lift it ~ 1 inch (with a floor jack or wood lever) to clear the rear tire+wheel to come free, remove the lug nuts and pull the wheel out. Place the other (there are tons of spare rear wheels for 1800s out there due to trike take-offs) wheel on, spin on the lugs, lower the center stand jack and raise the stand. Make sure the side stand is extended and lift her like Paul shows.:cool: Then remember to torque the lugs! I've done it three times now with no problem or strain.:action:

Thank You for the GREAT videos. I DO understand the couterweighting but I have a question. I have never really understood WHY the road racing motorcycle riders nearly dragging their knee, and their butt is hanging off the seat on the SAME side that they are leaning to. It looks impossible, but when they go into a corner, they scoot their butt off the seat, on the same side, that just sort of amazes me. It looks to me like that could cause PUSHING, or either of the wheels to slide out.Thank You again for the GREAT Tips, I will practice them when Old Man Winter decides to head North.

Blessings

Steve-O GOOD JOB !! :cool:

The road racers (and us at speed for that matter) are fighting centrifugal force, something that is not a problem at the low speeds. At very high speed, the bike could touch hard parts levering the tires off of the pavement if the rider does not move more weight toward the inside of the turn to counter the forces. This allows the bike to be a bit more upright. If you have watched the famous "Yellow Wolf and Fuse" video, you heard and saw a lot of scraping. Yellow wolf claims to now be a much better rider, and says that he seldom scrapes a peg due to improved lines and body control. He also says that he now tries to avoid ever crossing the center line (even hanging over it is avoided). Ah, to have such skills as Yellow Wolf and Trialsman!
