    Been riding since 1976 but I am new to HD. Today, around dusk while stopping at a red light my left leg slipped and the bike slowly went down. No damage.

    Boy, I was not able to lift it even with the butt technique. I was fortunate, a guy in a Jeep waived me indicating to stop lifting. He made a U turn. And helped me lift the bike.

    He said, "These Police bikes are a (EDIT) when down".

    I was red faced at what I had done..

    Thaks trike lady - doesn't hurt to have a little refresher every now & then. Especially now that we're dusting off the bikes. Went out this weekend & there's still alot of sand on the roade here in NE so be on your toes...
