Ok so my wife and I out last night perfect night for a ride, stopped for ice cream still perfect, go to leave parking lot on a slight grade and kinda narrow, well as we were turning to exit I guess I was going to slow and turning to tight and down she went, we were going slow so really no damage some marks on the touch points the problem came when I tried to lift her back up, the wheels were facing up the grade no way could I get her upright, my wife jumps in to help still we couldn't get her up, a nice guys stops to help and it took all we had to get her back on her wheels said our thanks for the help and left with a major dent in my pride,
anyone have any pointers for how the heck to get outa something like that if it ever happens again? not sure what would have happened if I was alone
You keyed on it when you said "too Slow".
You really can drive these big busses too slowly, but they can't be turned too tight, at least in my opinion.
Your throttle would have gotten you out of the situation and straightened you out, but it's counter intuitive and has to be practiced.
I've also had the honor of dropping with wheels on the high side of things.
The bike comes up with more effort, but using the same principles to lift; butt under the seat, lift the side case handle and handle bar while walking backward.
After it's up, secure and on the stand, congratulate yourself for doing a 724 pound dead lift
That's about what it takes to rock the wheels back under the beast.
