A small woman can lift a large heavy bike, I have seen photos of a slightly built woman demonstrate proper lifting of a large bike that has fallen over. Size is not the issue, it is leverage. As you stated, there is a proper way to lift, and it completely eliminates the "oh, golly, I am too small to get that back up" argument.Vash said:From the point where you get up thinking *what the hell did just happen?* to the point where you are on your bike and riding again. I've never tried to pick up a goldwing, but I have picked up some pretty big harleys, and I'm not that big (155lbs). So I think that the proper way to pick up a bike should be toght at MSF (if it isnt already) and that if you are too small (like 5'2" 100lbs) than stay away from really big bikes.

For what it's worth, fauzt0, responsibility and not riding stupid aren't really what it's about. Riding stupid will get you killed no matter who you are. It's more to do with not being familiar with the geometry and sometimes surprisingly temperamental handling characteristics of a sportbike.
But as everyone has said, you're going to do what you've already made your mind up to do, so be careful.:2cents:

What's funny, is that no matter what site one goes to, this thread always has the same people. The vets who advise the wise course of caution, and the fools who scoff at such.....
