If you can pickup a GS then you can pickup an 1190.   

BUT,  I've found that back to the seat thing that everybody teaches to pickup a GS is the absolute hardest way to lift a KTM.  The "open" handle bar, forward technique is waaaaaaay easier.

So the GS method you place your back to the seat and pull the handle bar towards you, if that is closed, then my way is "open". 

Like so really

If you’re not falling over, you’re not challenging yourself anymore.....

ry nie.

I just feel so bad when I drop it :-[  Like I just kicked my dog or something. 

I know most of these bikes are built like tanks, but every time it lays down I feel terrible.   I want to push myself to learn more and try new things but that kinda holds me back.  Need disposable dirtbike to mess around on I guess.
