I'm 52, arthritic, and here's how I do it.

Turn bars full left. Place right hand under end of right fork leg. Left hand on right bark buster or grip. Lift with legs. Rotate to position bike on stand.

Stll hurts, though.

Old man joints suck.

Talking Thanks

51 arthitis in knee and spine. Multiple knee surgeries along with Breg brace. I look forward to trying your method and sparing myself further embarassment, besides the chain needs maintenance.

Thanks!

The DRZ hurts more than the KTM or the CR500. LOL

Oy, the rhumatis, let me tell you...my goiter, it kills me. And the hemmoroids...the size of grapefruits. I can't tell if I'm sitting down, am I standing? The Doctor tells me I need to take my medicine, but then I get the gas. Passing gas two three hundred times a day...I think it makes the roids get all cheesy. You know, you're walking along and you pass the gas? Then it feels all cheesy? Yeah, it's so uncomfortable with the Depends, but what can I do? You don't know old man my friend, but let me tell you.

Good job, and nice bike, Mugwump.

Ken, I wouldn't wish my health problems on you, or anybody. We all got stuff, dude.

Tell me about it. I wasn't dinging you, really do have RA. My rhumatologist prescribed Humera. That stuff gave me an allergic reaction, I looked like a teenager with REALLY bad acne. So then he gives me methatrexate. The other day he says my liver function is goofed up from that. Meanwhile I have claws instead of hands; steel in my wrist and neck, two fractured vertebrae, and my feet smell bad. I blame it all on motorcycles.

I would have blamed it on Bush.

When I got tested for Humira, that's when I found about the TB. F'n hurray.... It's amazing how the public health system works. Head of the line at the local hospitals ASAP. Xrays clear, damn trips to third world countries.

I never have to be tested for TB again. See there's an up side to everything.

Actually this all started with Bush the elder, see it is Bush's fault.

No not really.
