  5. Mmmm, this might come in handy for me with my gimpy arm to see if I can use it (at current "position") to lift a (test?) bike. My bike has fallen a couple times at either whilst it was standing or once when I took off from a corner and a taxi from the opposite side speeding, went into the spot I was moving into and I had to brake with my right foot still coming off the ground = bike laid down. Luckily the people behind me helped me as they saw what a fcukwit the taxi driver was and they wanted to do as much as they could for me, which at the time that lifting my bike was all I needed. It was all too quick and no-one got his numberplate and it was 11 months ago, no care to chase him up. But as the original thing goes, looking to see if I could pick up a bike with the way my injured arm is could come in handy, I just hope I never need to try to lift my bike again, it's had enough lay downs I reckon. :oops:
