do you need to be wearing a skirt
Yer… i remeber lasty time i was trying to pick my bike up in a skirt!!:w00t::w00t:
Silly girl… all you need is a low cut top underneath your leathers… blinking of the eye lashes and a helpless look on your face… works everytime!:hehe::w00t:
nah i just go " oi get this bike of me"
i dont do fluttery eyelashes
how often you drop it??? :w00t:
I think its a really useful thing to be telling people about - although its only one technique of many…
The last time I had to pick up a bike it was a big Honda following an accident. Not mine.
For the life of me, I can’t remember how I did it but I sure didn’t use my bum but that looks a good technique if it’s a realy heavy bike.
I usually find that the shock of seeing the bike lying on the floor provides enough adrenaline to get it back upright - I don’t like the idea of riding a bike that I can’t physically pick up e.g. a big Harley or a Goldwing - but then I wouldn’t ride one of those even if I could pick it up!
I was once told (so might be borrocks) that the m/c test in Japan requires the rider to lay down the bike and then pick it up.
Reportedly, the authorities were worried that too many little runts were riding big powerfull m/c’s and getting into too much trouble. This was a cunning ploy to force riders to buy smaller bikes.
Anyone know if this is true or cack?
I have heard the same and think it is true. I’ve picked up a FJ1200 single handedly. Held the front brake and turned steering towards me and lifted. Adrenalin does things and made a 280kg bike feel light. Done the same with my light 200kg Sprint RS. Helps to be big I guess…
lol im always dropping it getting it in the gate ,
and i crashed yesterday going round a roundabout and it landed on me , again!
so the guys in the vans that nearly ran me over had to come pick it up for me
im gunna be f***** when i get a bigger bike lol
