How to Pickup a Downed Bike
OK, so you stopped for a cool drink at this
little country store out in the middle
of the boondocks.. When you come back out you see your 800lbs of steel and
rubber laying on it's side and there is no one around to help.
Question: How do you get it back upright?
With one hand get a firm grip on the lowest hand
Squat down, with legs shoulder width apart and place your butt against the seat.
Now with the other hand get a firm grip under the rear of the seat.
Lift by taking small steps backwards. Keep back
straight, lift with your legs.
Continue this motion until the bike is once again
Once the bike is upright, don't forget the
Kick stand or you
may find yourself doing it again!
