"Now I tipped my bike
over on the right side, do I pick it up the same way?"
Not exactly...Just follow these steps.
First, make sure the bike is turned off. Once turned off, make sure
put the transmission in 1st gear.
Make sure you pull the jiffy-stand (kick-stand) out just like you would
if the bike was standing upright and you were parking it.
Sit on the seat and locate a solid area on you
bike with your right hand
that you can use to
help lift the bike. Some cruisers come with a handle
under the passenger
Place your left hand on the
right hand grip (throttle), and ALSO the
front brake lever. This will help keep the bike from moving if
did not get the bike in gear correctly before starting to pick it up.
Now, pull the handle grip
(throttle + front brake lever)
towards you to turn
the front wheel as far
as possible. Grab the other solid area you located
with your right
Look straight ahead of you at the horizon and
put pressure from your feet
to your weight on the seat pushing against the bike.
Slowly start pushing against the bike and lifting at the same time.
Keep the pressure against the seat.
Slowly work the bike back up to a standing position.
As you get close to being back in the upright position, slowly start
decreasing the pressure you are applying to the seat with your
body weight. Grab the Throttle with your right hand, and the other
handle grip with your left hand. (DO NOT PULL IN THE CLUTCH).
With the bike slightly tipped towards you so it doesn't tip the opposite
direction, straighten the front wheel out.
Slowly tip the bike away from you onto the Jiffy-stand.
You just successfully picked up your bike!
