I've enjoyed posting and seeing the pictures in this thread. For those if you who have fallen over how hard was it to pick the bike back up??

Not a big deal. I find myself picking up the bike a few times per outing (off road). It seems a lot less top heavy than my F800GS.... so it's less fatiguing to ride.

Fairly easy with the right technique

I recently did a off-road course that included a lot of sand riding, I dropped the bike MANY times and got used to picking it up, it is really not such a big deal

Finally something I know about!

Boat's right, technique's the key when picking it up. I'm a pretty average sized guy, just grabbing the handle bars and trying to lift the bike would be rough.

Back towards the bike, One hand on the handle bar, one hand on the rear rack/grab handle, and use your legs to lift - works like a charm.

I have never been able to pick up the big katooms in this fashion. By the time you have your legs straight, you're only half way there!

I put my hips in against the seat and then "walk" it forward.

I guess it depends on your build. I find it very hard to pick it up. In the picture above I barely managed to pick it up, dropped it again after few meters (slick soil) and couldn't pick it up again. Fortunately I wasn't alone.
I'm not a strong guy, but used to have no problem picking up my previous bike which was a KTM 640 Adventure 2005 (160 Kg vs 220 Kg).
