I don't think it is too big, just have to learn how to pick it up properly without causing more damage. Here is a video that might help you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPjYweKeiLk

If you squat down with you back to the bike, on the side of the gas tank, grab the handle bars, and whatever else you can grab on the end, and slowly lift up with your legs.

Help control the squid population, have your squid spayed or neutered
