Great article! I moved through the ranks 125cc to 750cc before settling on a low riding 950cc cycle that has everything I wanted. However, I quickly learned that the 613 pound motorcycle that is stretched out with wide 36 inch handlebars is very different and heavy than the previous two bikes I learned to ride on. Slowing down to u-turn in a parking lot, my biggest fear arrived! I laid my bike over. Alone and frustrated, I tried (incorrectly) to lift the bike that was not going to move using my measly 130 pound body. Pulling/pinching something in my lower back, I quickly went for help. A burly man came to the rescue, lifting with ease. I took over and embarrassingly parked my motorcycle.

I will be using the technique described in your article if ever in such a situation again. I’m also working on the self talk as now I’m "in my head" and riding timidly. I'm ready for spring weather to arrive so I can build confidence and hit the open road.

Remember to put the sidestand up. I had my bike on the centerstand while working on it. The sidestand was in the way when it was up so I put it down. When I finished doing what I was doing I pushed the bike off the centerstand and when the sidestand contacted the ground it threw the bike right on it's side. Surprise!

Smart article. It's very easy to make these mistakes and even easier to avoid making them once you know what to avoid.
