    This is the most gay ass thing I have ever seen on RU-clip. She’s talking about being a woman with a little frame but her man is about the same size as her..
    The biggest point is that thing is not laying sideways it’s laying out about a 45° angle. Big deal when you drop a bike they lay flat on the ground.

    so first thing to ask to the garage salesman before buying the bike is if it's possible to get kickstands installed on both sides...

    This happened to my friend not to long ago. He made a turn on the road and his bike tipped over. Being that the bike is about 700lbs, he struggled getting it back up. A good truck driver behind him was able to assist him, he couldn’t get it back up by himself. I don’t own a bike, but I will make sure he knows about this in case it happens again. Thanks.

    Ride a Honda Goldwing with liquid cooling and you'll be ashamed riding an American bike that is air cooled.
    Heck show us when bike fallen on gravel or onto soft dirt or grass on the next video.

    HD's are the absolute best ride on the highway, like a 60's Cadillac or a Lazyboy cruising down the road. At slow speed, it's like a 60's CEMENT truck.

    good luck with a real motorcycle like hayabusa or for example suzuki 750 no chance in the world that a little woman gets it up almost not a man either !! the motorcycle you show + goldwing has the center of gravity so far down! that's why you can get up such a big bike,,

    I just quickly lifted the bike up out of embarrassment while my gf later told me that it made her hot demonstrating how strong I was. Always a silver lining.

    What if the bike is on it's side resting on the gas tank ?

  • wolfe1970
    wolfe1970 28 days ago

    Dont forget to bend that foot rest back....i would never lay my bike down on purpose, even for practising, oil, coolant, fuel, all have breather pipes and can over flow them, plus like this bike you can damage it even laying it down slowly

    For me the easiest way to pick up my Ultra Classic was to take it into the dealer and trade it for a TriGlide. I never looked back...

    • Ron Grimes
      Ron Grimes Month ago

      Yeah, they leave out the fact that if you don't have those guards, the bike won't be at a convenient 45 deg angle for easy lift. Without those guards, the bike would be at 90 deg and no way you're picking it up.

    One extra tip which I don"t think was mention, make sure kick stand is down before up righting the bike RIDING IS FREEDOM

    ...and here's to 'Farmer Brown' who sat across the intersection 20 yrs ago and watched me tip into a ditch under the bike when I killed the engine and couldn't get my feet down fast enuf on a Honda 900 full dress... Then the SOB drove right past me - probably thinking I was doing a trick riding exercise at 6 in the morning... Yes - it hurt. Nothing broken (I was only 50 then)... I crawled out from under it, somehow picked the behemoth up, got it upright, got on and rode off... Cool what you can do with enuf adrenaline and embarrassment, eh...? Oh yeah - fuck you, asshole. I hope your cow kicked you inna face when you squished her tit. (BTW - I never did tell my buddy I bought the bike from about this... Now that he's dead and gone, he's probably laughing, watching me write...)

    That is why senior citizens should carry with them "Call Alert" in case they fall or they bike falls over. And can't get up.😄😁👍. Or they have so much arthritis in the hips and knees, or shoulders.

    This is a great video and the technique works. I've tried it myself. Mine fell on the side with the kickstand with small rollbars. So i to bend my knees to lower my ass to the edge of the seat. Then as I walk backwards small steps, I had to kick the kickstand out when it was lifted to an upright position. 👌

    Nice. But why would she have done if it had fallen on the other side? There’s no kickstand to catch it on her side.

    This could be the dumbest video on RU-clip. They coulda made this video in 30 seconds. What if the bike went down on the left side and you couldn't use the kick stand for help? Why ride a big heavy dresser in the first place? This is just another reason why I've been riding my own home made choppers for 46 years, hahaha.
