LMAO....that was hilarious. A perfect ending to that video would have been if he accidentally tipped it over again as he was signing off.

QUALITY over speed. Doing a crappy job fast is worthless, so take pride in your work as so few do these days. If you want to lose respect, then act like your work doesn't matter.
That was funny!
After my Cross Country rolled off the kickstand I found myself doing the same thing. The difference was that in my case the bike was almost 800lbs. and I swore a hell of lot more than he did.

Thanks for the video!

Yeah, I semi-sorta-dropped my XC on this last 7000 mile trip. Actually I was in a very slow situation, walking the bike in a lot, and had the bars turned too much - then my weak knee couldn't hold it up.

The bike went over on the front/rear tip overs. No damage. Fully loaded, full fuel tank, camping gear, trunk, laptop, tools, probably a lead weight that I neglected to remove... Boy was that suckker HEAVY!.

I got it up tho', and was a little beat at then end of the process. To my surprise I did not use any "language" to help. I needed all my strength and concentration to get the bike up. I am thankful I have the "passenger handholds", because they are convenient to strap stuff to and also a solid place to grab in the rear for the lift process.
это - мои два рубля! держите мою пиво и наблюдайте это!

Put the Vision down last weekend. Walked her right up. WAsn't as hard as I thought it would be.

I let my XC tip over on some soft sand. It was down and on the crash bar before I knew what happened. It was easy to lift though. Surprisingly easy. I've had to lift a full HD dresser up by myself before and the XC, weighing about the same, was much easier. Clearly has a lower center of gravity. Thankfully.
