A few years ago I tried to ride my 1500 thru a mud wash out area, only 20 ft of road covered with mud. I was going to follow a rut from a truck looked easy enough, nice and slow and then the front tire pulled me into the mud and over I went. I was laying on my side in the mud and the bike was taking a nap on it's side. It didn't hurt me or the bike but for the life of me I could not pick up the motor cycle and I'm pretty big. Every time I tried my feet would slide in the mud and then there was this lady in a car that was blocked because I was in the middle of the road in the middle of nowhere. She was a real bitch about it kept saying do you have a plan and I would say let me get back to you. Finally a guy came along and helped me get the bike upright and I rode it out with him helping balance the bike. I learned a lot of lesson's that day and I don't ride thru mud or loose gravel anymore. So can I pick up a Goldwing that has fallen on it's side, it depends.
