More power to all the folks who can single handedly right a GSA. When I bought my GSA I traded in an R1150R. One reason I thought the GSA would be manageble was that it actually has a dry weight less than my old R1150R, and I very easily picked that bike up off my driveway one day. I was surprised on the snow day when I could not get the beast up, and yes, it may have been due to bad footing. Soft sand was not easy either, especially on the second drop.

For myself, I now know that if conditions are not right, not good footing, maybe a post crash injury, it will be a struggle to get the bike upright. Thats what the jack is for.
