I was speaking with a friend a while back about picking up the Silverwing after it has fallen over.

He mentioned that the way he learned to pick up a bike, is to:
1. Start the engine.
2. Lift the bike just to an angle where the wheels are at least on the ground.
3. Turn the front wheel toward you and give it gas.

That as the bike accelerates in a circle the centrifugal force will bring it right up.
Has anyone tried this on the wing?

EDIT I have no problem getting the wing up. Just curious if anyone has tried this technique, and if so how did it work?

Dan

Agreed dangerous. If you slip or lose your grip the bike will fall again, if the bike doesn't rise up immediately you're likely to damage more plastic. Worst possibility would be the bike pulling you over on top of it. Best way is butt first. Back up to the bike, grab the downside handlebar grip and the passenger grab rail on the same side. Push back with your feet and behind against the bike and it will come up. Must less effort and strength is required than trying to pick it up facing forward. Using this method I've seen a small woman right a dropped 850lb. Goldwing.
