Let's face it, we all, at one stage or another will drop our motorcycle. It can be when pulling up at the curb of our favorite watering hole, or in the middle of the African desert. But picking up your motorcycle isn't as easy as you might think. There are many different theories, most centered around putting your backside against the saddle and using your legs as lever.

But according to the rally and enduro specialists (they drop their motorcycle regularly every day) that's not how you do it. If you need to do this a couple of times per day, you'll be exhausted.

And believe me, I know. In 2005 I followed the Dakar race through Africa on my BMW 1150GS. Fully loaded, it weights some 400 kilos. Using the conventional wisdom way almost killed me. When I switched to this method, I managed many times a day to pick up the bike.

Here is Tiffany Coates Open link in a new window, a world traveller/adventurer showing you how to pick up a dropped motorcycle.
