I feel ya! I can pick up my CRF230 faster than I can get myself up off the ground.

But if I ever drop my GSA, I'll have to call the Marines or something,
'cause I'll be doomed.

Due to financial limitations I bought a cheap used TW200 this year to get me around after totaling my WeeStrom in a deer hit last fall.

One of the first things I noticed is how relaxing a shorter, lighter bike is. Kinda liking it.

Thr TW is on my list if lowering the DR doesnt work out especially since I have the wee also

I didnt have the luxury of a tire and prob very little gas = numerous other factors that I see those youngsters had.

Great report, don't let it be your last

Also, learn out to pickup your bike, can't be that hard. I'm a skinny 160lbs dude with bad joints and wayyy too many hours behind a computer and can pickup my 450lbs street bike no problem. I've also picked up a guy's bandit 1250 before. Its all about positioning and leverage, doesn't take much strength. There's a little old lady that goes around picking up a goldwing I'm told. :)

Well, I is a little old lady, but when I dropped my Harley last weekend, the wheels were higher than the tank..
Took 3 strong men to pick it up...gravel driveway on an angle, no traction.

The Wings have enough rollbars on them that they only get about 1/3 of the way down. The newer ones are also way lower center of gravity, my b.f's 1994 Wing is about 5 inches higher, I cant' even get my toes down. His friend's 2003 Wing sports a CT, way lower.
