Picking up a downed or dropped
motorcycle properly.

Copyright 2018, R. Fleischer

Dropped your bike?  Bike fell over?

If you drop the motorcycle, or it fell over, getting it back up is, or can be, difficult.   BikerChic blog used to have a video of a guy doing it his way, but the article/blog was highjacked, and is likely full of malware now, so I have eliminated the URL here.

"Skert" (Carol Youorski ) demonstrates good technique at many rallies.  Here is some information from SKERT, that in some ways is better than the BikerChick blog I noted above:

SKERT's own website:

Check the side-stand bushings, & check the stand for being straight, and check the holes in the stand, etc.

11-04-2013:  Revise, resize.
03/13/2016:  Update meta-codes, layout, fonts, clarify details, identify with an article number, reverse order, change title.
10/03/2016:  Update meta-codes, scripts, fix html errors.
02/19/2017:  Check link, yesterday and today, and add notes to the Bikerchick link.
03/25/2018:  Update and cleanup.  HTML, layout, fonts, colors.  Remove certain large parts of the side-stand section and put into FarleyBrown, etc., article, where it really belongs.  Remove link due to malware.  Remove some commentary because I think Skert does better than my explanations.
