Videos don't load for me so not sure if this is covered but look around first. Frequently the reason for the drop, may also make picking it up a challenge. Gravel, oil, uneven terrain can cause you to drop it and if you are too quick to try and pick it up, the same issues will make it harder to pick it back up. I know it is embarrassing to have your mighty steed laying down, but relax and know the surroundings, and maybe just snack on some crow and let someone come help. There is trying to pick up an 800 pound bike, then there is trying to do the same, with some oil residue on your soles...
