Sorry to hear that you SilverWing went over.

It is easiest done by a single person if you face away from the bike squat down and grasp the passenger hand holds with your hands behind your back. Use your legs and stand up raising the bike. Be carefull as you get it near vertical as you could tip it completely over.

I'll bet there are youtube videos out there somewhere of people picking up GoldWings using this method.

It works best if you put on the parking brake.

If necessary you can also lock the wheel turning toward the side that is is laying on ... for example if the SWing is laying on it's left side and you can steering all the way to the left and lock the ignition (or vice versa) ... then you do not have to worry about handle bar movement.

The last part is to face your butt to SWing with a good wide footing/stance ... then lifting on to the wheels. Lifting onto the wheels is harder than lifting once the wheels are touching the ground ... which may be why sometimes the SWing could end up on the other side.

Being a former Marine I try to bench press it 5 times a day...sometimes only using 1 hand. Other days I need to use 2. Has anyone tried picking up the Swing upright without assistance? Icon_razz But mine has fell once and I didn't have trouble picking it up. I just wish I could have kept it from going over though. It seems once it reaches that point there is no stopping it.

Last summer I caught mine as it was going down and brought it back up . I should have let it go . My left elbow is just getting better now . My buddy
dropped his twice and with two arms it was easy to pick it up .
