Watch out not to push too far.
It might fall to the other side.
And I'm not joking.

good to see your alright.....by why not run through the water? i've hit puddles on near full lean before with DOT race tires. unless you're talking about flood condition type water, then....well done.

Picking up a bike depends a lot on the bike, not just the weight and size. We had a "drop-n-learn" once so that we could practice picking our bikes up on soft grass before we'd have to do it in the middle of traffic.

It was almost effortless to pick up my 500+ lb. liter bike, but it was very difficult to pick up a Ninja 250. The way it lays lower to the ground combined with the lack of good hand placement on the rear of the bike made the Ninja a real pain to get back up on her feet.

It's a good idea for everyone to practice laying their bike over and picking it up at least once so that they know they can do it - and without pulling a muscle!

Is everyone a wuss? :laughing6 How can you not pick up your bikes? I'm a skinny punk (6'4 185lbs) and I can pick my bike up no problem when it's on it's side (had to do it 3 times :laughing6 ). Just use your legs...

I dropped my SV off the rear stand in my carport and couldn't lift it because I was trying to use my upper body. I've since learned the technique, and it's MUCH easier when you know what you're doing!

yeah, i've panicked before when i saw water on a turn. it goes against the newbie grain to run through puddles on your first bike, but you'll get used to it in time!

Glad you're o.k.!
Put ice on it for the first 24 hours and then you can use heat. If your stomach isn't easily upset, take 3 Advil 3 times a day with food to minmize swelling.
Let me know if I can help any.
