Fit crashbars - then u'll have a roll over point that will get the
wheels on the ground...and you can put Hella Rallye 4000s on so you can
see 4km while riding at night
I had a 1500 'wing a while back (am 5'6 & 65kg) and I could pick it up
thanks to the crashbars...and probably the heads if no crashbars
By the time you roll it over the 'bars the tyres are biting the ground
and the thing is 30 degrees upright

Damn near all leather garments are made in Pakistan!

Admittedly I haven't tried since the crashbars were fitted, but as
they are to protect heads that are well above the midline of the bike
I dunno how well they'd do that job. Would save the plastic when the
thing slides I suppose.
They might provide a better angle. I'm not about to put it on its
side to try....

When I bought my brand new Z1000A I rode out towards the Torrens Island
power station one night, and far from any possible observers, gently laid
it on its side. I was trying to avoid the humiliation of being unable to
pick it up with bystanders watching. Hadn't thought it through, had I? 
 Fortunately I was able to get it back upright without damage to
chrome or paint.
