Pretty slick concept. Any time I have had to right a bike it was probably adrenaline that got it up.

Lots of goofs on here who will criticize you for not being able to lift a fallen, heavy motorcycle. My motorcycle weights about 900 pounds. Sometimes I can lift it, sometimes not; pavement surface makes a difference, as does the incline, as does the way I physically feel on any given day.

Now, if you said you were having vision problems seeing a fire truck on an emergency run with all the lights blasting, then I would say it was time to quit riding.

Any tool or device that can help someone who needs the help is a good thing IMO.
Understanding your limits is key, Not everyone can pick up a touring bike.
To those who say he shouldn't be riding just because he can't lift his bike, that's a bunch of BS!
I dumped my old electraglide a few years ago, slow drop at an intersection when someone pulled out in front of me as I was
turning onto a side road, had to hit the brake or I would have hit him, NO choice at all.
I managed to lift the bike, even with a failed 5 level fusion, but it was pure adrenaline that did it.
I wish I had had this tool that day.

You need to be sufficiently motivated.
I bounced my FL Shovelhead off my left knee at 45 mph, shattering it in the process.
Got up, went to my bike resting on the floorboard, and put it on the kickstand. Not a scratch on it.
Reached down to pop my knee back in (or so I thought). When I felt the mess down there, I sat down on the ground and took my boot off, so the EMTs wouldn't have to cut it.
I don't recommend this method though...it sucks deluxe.

Just because some have numb nuts / numbskull does not mean the rest of us suffer same fate. Ability to make and use tools separates man from monkeys.....

The adrenaline doesn't last, but go ahead and dog pile smart asses. That thing won't help much if you're under the bike.
I spent the next 4 months with a walker, having my knee drained repeatedly, 3 surgeries involving an external fixator, followed by permanent internal hardware, and cadaver marrow. During that time, I couldn't lift my leg high enough to get on the bike, let alone pick it up. Thankfully, didn't lose the leg, and even have the same knee now with no limp.
Don't need your compassion, but wouldn't wish that on you.
