    KLR lift a heavy Motorcycle

    Let see a KLR is 375#, ever lift a K1200LT or Harley. Yes you can walk them back up of you get a good hold, but you better be in pretty good shape and have good knees.

    Ride like a Pro shows a not very big lady raising a Harley by this procedure.

    I've seen all those videos, but can never lift a bike using the backwards technique. If you're with friends, they'll pick it up for you -- before they help you up.

    But not until after they all get a picture of your bike on its side

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.
