Re: Dropped my bike for the first time

Yeah, I was freaking out a bit and called my husband crying. I don't think he has ever jumped in the truck and driven so quick!

But that might be a good thought - I was more worried about my bike that I wasn't even thinking about the best way to even try to lift it. In the future, I think my chances of getting help from someone driving by is likely and next year, my husband's bike should be fixed so he will be out with me more too.

Back/butt to seat and squat.

First time I dropped my bike, I couldn't figure out what to do. Finally did it the wrong way, found out when my back started killing me the next day. Prior vids are good recommendations.

Were you selling a gutted SHO shell not too long ago?

Re: Dropped my bike for the first time

Squat FTW

I saw a little lady (prob 5'5'' 120lbs...) last summer that lifted a big fatboy with this technique, so trust me, you can lift a tiny R6

Current bike : Z1000
Shortened oem slip-on, K&N filter and PC3, rizoma levers, sprocket kit

Old bike : YZF-R6
MJS shorty slip-on, K&N filter

Yes I was. Decided to keep it and finish the project. Putting together a new motor for it right now.

Re: Dropped my bike for the first time

Frame sliders for sure is my advice, first thing I'll put on any bike I own, save the frame/plastics from tipping your bike for the most part...sad to hear you dropped your bike without them and had to learn the hard way

Re: Dropped my bike for the first time

Are all frame sliders the same? Or is there a preferred type/brand?

Definitely not the same, wood crafts are considered one of the best.
