You know, a good handle might come in handy next to the front brake and clutch levers. Would be nice to have something closeby, essentially parallel, to pull on when wrestling the bike around 'cause, as we've discovered, the levers aren't really made for lifting the bike.

Oh, wait...

Cool strap idea. I wonder why Honda didn't think of that. Oh, wait...

I keep questioning myself this morning!

Hello men....relative new bee here but have owned the big pig for years now and have spent a lot of time with her.....all the good and bad....I would not be tugging upward on the rear of the subframe where you have your lift strap...those two frame tubes are just hanging out there....the subframes are fragile anyway....

This is what I'm thinking too. At least one side of my sub-frame is bent upwards...with no apparent damage to anything else.

That's cool you're posting up! These bikes sure have their idiosycrasies. I like 'em though.
The factory strap is mounted forward, about mid-seat. Everyone pulls it off, though - ugly, I guess, or it's the fad. Who needs a strap? Oh, wait...

OK... good point. Thoughts for further discussion...
What lift point do you use when the hefting the ass end of the pig about? If you use the frame member right above the muffler, you end up putting the entire load on one side of the frame. I figured spreading the load across both sides would be better.

I hope that the rear frame is not so fragile that it would bend that easily.

This is what bent up the buckle on the Moose straps:

Since putting one of Mike's center stands on my bike, I've struggled to get it up on the stand. Came up with this idea, mounted to one of the foot peg mounts. Works for me in this application.
