Picking up a fallen motorcycle

Found this posting on a blog called Five Hundred Miles, points to to video on the proper technique for picking up a downed motorcycle. Saw same technique on a DVD put out by the "motorman" called "Ride like a Pro".

The clip is well worth watching if you are a rider, though he uses a mid-sized motorcycle, same technique works on a goldwing-sized motorcycle in motorman's DVD. (A DVD which I highly recommend you watch with close attention, you can probably get it from your local public library, that's what I did).

I've used the same technique both times when Maria was down. Did not remember to put the kickstand down first when she was on her right side though, luckily there was a guy to help me hold her up while I moved around to her left side to put the sidestand down. Don't forget!
