How to pick up a bike like a girl

I'm sure some of you have seen this, but I thought I'd share anyway. Hope none of you ever have to use it.

Lol I'm 69" and around 140 and I pulled my 05 636 up from the kickstand side and I'm not some juiced muscle man

However this is a good idea if you can't get it up otherwise.

I should have used this technique when I crashed in '06. The class A shoulder separation and the 3 broken ribs would not have taken as much abuse..

Great Thread!!!
.
The "using your legs" technique, vs the "manly man reach down and using your lower back just lift that sucker up" is a classic piece of advice and instruction that newbies should know. I'm in the middle of trying to teach my wife how to ride a motorycle well enough to pass the test at..... "motorycle school"... and they sure don't teach that at the school. One of the first things I showed her was how to pick up the 350 pound V-Star training bike. She was not happy, but when I told her that standing there looking at it as the tractor trailer is bearing down on her was not gonna' help matters....
.
I've always told my friends who ride bikes that if they do not know how to pick up their ride, then they need to grab the blankets, lay it over and find out.....

It would stand to reason that the girl weighed 400 pounds, and I'm not real sure I wanna' see that video....

I'm thinking more like 'treating' a girl like a bike rather than picking one up

Grease up the nipples
Warm up the rubber
Sticking your nozzle in the tank
Slinging your leg over

Well this was more for the ladies, hence why I posted it in the ladies section

Lady lost her balance or footing. There's no way that little rock or all those little rocks combined could have brought the bike down.

You would be surprised what a rock could do when leaned over. I think the video is more for how to pick up the bike for girls than how she fell.
