Yeah yeah, I am now also one of those who have droppet it!

I was in my brothers garage and should put the lisence plate on it
and I was sitting on it and just about to put it on sidestand when I found out that it was not fully out, :rolleyes: thus I had to let it down easy :( and luckily no marks on it. :p

Damn how heavy that thing is to get up again!!! With my tall stature and weak knees I would not have gotten it up if it was not with the help of my brother AND that my friends is a scary thought..what if and out in the wilderness!!! :confused:

It shows 31 miles pr gallon in mostly the city...is that normal?

Hey, Paul,
Yeah.. remember, "gravity" never takes a break.

I don't know how you did it, but I have to say, using your "lower back" as demonstrated by our brother, Munson, is the way to go.

Yeah, depending upon your "style" 31 mpg can be "normal"....
Misty gets almost 50 when I am "behaving" and drops to 35 when I am really cranking it.

Sorry about your misfortune.

I've had mine lay over 4 or 5 times :( It doesn't get any easier.

There is a good video (if you haven't seen it) Picking up LT

It's still a "Fat Pig"

Nice Picture.

I am 6'5" so I share your "challenge". I have "righted-her" by myself using that procedure. It isn't easy, but, can be done.

I've tried other methods, but, lacking a nearby helper, this is your only choice.

I'm sure the "Harley-Boys" will gladly lend a hand to right your bike if it falls again, if only to get pay back for the "Ball Roasters" comments :rotf:
