well im not picking the whole bike off the ground.

I think if someone cant pick up their bike if it falls over they shouldnt be riding. What if they fell over and bike was on them. They would need to push it off.

Moody you pimp you.

lol, a while back, one of my friends told me that a friend of his ended up dropping his bike at a light, forgot how. Anyways, it tipped with him still on it, and he ended up stuck. Bike was too heavy to lift off of him himself, ppl just drove by him not helping, so luckily he had his cell on him, and called one of his buds to help get it off of him. lol I think he had a 750

Best way to pick up a bike. I was taught this by an MSF instructor.

If you're unlucky, the bike fell on it's left side. If you are by yourself, place your back to the bike, and squat down and lift. Hopefully the bike remains upright, it however may fall onto it's right side.

If you're lucky, and the bike fell on it's right side to begin with. Step 1, extend the kickstand. Now, stand with your back to the bike, squat down, and grab the handlebar and lock the brake with your left hand. Now GRUNT! If you successfully lift the bike overzealously, the kickstand should catch the bike.



Also on carb bikes, the easy way to start a flooded bike is to leave the choke in it's normal unchoked running position. Open the throttle fully, twist it ALL the way and push and hold the starter until it starts, or no longer than 15 seconds before pausing then repeating. Of course you want to make sure it's in neutral, and you're holding the clutch.

funny you mention this.. I left work early friday @ 430pm to find out I had a flat tire! I was thinking to myself "alright jennyfer, this is an opportunity to see if you can change a flat yourself" but also hoping someone would walk by and help you (i was still in my company's parking lot w/ over 3k employees). So many people walked by and didn't even bother to help!! if they aren't willing to help, i'm not about to ask someone who doesn't want to offer (i'm just stubborn like that). I have a freaken 4runner too! the tires were heavy when trying to pick up the full size spare and putting it right in the holes! i had a screw in my spare too! but the air was good.. then on my way to discount tire to get both tires patched up.

i just couldn't believe how people could see a lady change a tire by herself and just keep walking! i called one of my male co-worker (who was still in the building) and told him i had a flat - he told me to call security or something and didn't offer to come out and help! he had the guts to call me from a bar and ask if i want to come out while i was still chaning my tire!! i couldn't believe he left work and didn't call me back to see if i was still changing my flat!! it took me 40 mins.. hardest part, loosen the bolts and putting the spare on.

this is why i try to learn to do things myself b/c you never know who you can count on.
