    Had my bike lay down on me today... What is the best way to get the Heritage Softail back up when you are alone?

    I have never picked up a bike the way showed in these site, but I was taugh (and have picked it up my self) another way. Depends on which way the bike is laying (of course it is off) with it in gear hold the front brake and turn the fork, if it is on the left you turn the fork to the right using the back of the wheel it starts to pick it up and you just follow thur with it, the weight is shifted by the wheel. One it is up enough you shift your body under it and your done. Works in sand or on the road, of course best is not to drop it but most of us "been there done that". Go to a shop and see if they have a crash bike and try it.
