Why does this whole thing look like a gigantic troll?

70 years old and a buff 250 lbs? Can't hold up a motorcycle?

It does look like a troll but on the other hand an athletic 250lb 25 year old probably couldn't pick up a VTX1800 by himself either. I could barely get the Shovelhead up and the VTX has it by almost 200 lbs.

The Concours fell over once in some grass on a slope. I nearly busted a nut picking that thing up. I was helped by freaking out over busted plastic(none did though).

"I could barely get the Shovelhead up and the VTX has it by almost 200 lbs."

May I suggest going to the gym?? Possibly remove the arm chaps and EZ-Leaker before the attempt?

It is not wise to call by name that who should not be named.
