I can squat lift quite a bit of weight, but I've been blessed with strong legs. Because of that, I may not have pursued other avenues of lifting my GS.

Think of mechanical advantage. Can I use a lever or a pulley?
i can lift my r100gs quite easily.But i can assure you it is quite a different proposistion if the ground you are standing on is not flat AND is slippery.As you lift the bike up you push with your feet to get it from mostly horizontal to mostly vertical.If the ground is slippery you cant.
