You could just push by hand, no need for a car.

my guess is the camera man was the smart friend that knew he was gonna dump it, didn't tell him, and filmed it and laughed at him and put it on the internet.

awesome.

I've got an R1 and I have done it by my self a couple of times just to see if I could by myself. Its really not that hard. put in second gear, get a little speed, and here is the trick, as your dumping the clutch, put as much pressure down on the back wheel as you can. in one jolt if you can. it starts right up. I think everyone that rides should know how to push start there bike the right way. maybe not by yourself, but at least know how. its like driving and not knowing how to change a tire.

A twin 1000 is a little harder than a four banger.

I used to have to push start my old CB750K a bunch since it had stator/charging issues. Second and sometimes third gear would do the trick. It definitely helps to have a friend. IMO it's easier to push start a heavier bike since you have more momentum to turn the engine over with once you drop the clutch.

I never had a problem push starting my ZR-7. All I had to do was shuffle a little bit and pop the clutch in first. It would fire every time.
