If you are ever in a situation where you are valeting a motorbike and you need to move it, be very careful, if you do not have any experience with motorbikes and have never moved one before then take my advice and get the owner to move it for you if possible.
If that is not possible and you are in a predicament make sure you always lean the bike in towards your body slightly, under no circumstances hold it straight or away from you or you will drop it!
Motorcycles feel very light when in an upright position but if they go beyond the balanced point then they become very heavy very fast.
Do not move a bike on grass as it is easy to drop it by losing your footing, or the front wheel slipping away from you.
Be very careful if the ground is not level, once you start to move a bike you need to be in full control with it leaning towards you slightly with both hand on the handle bars and with your right handy ready to squeeze the break lever to stop if necessary.
Some bikes have a side stand and some have a bottom lift stand, the side stand is an eaasy lever out option which must only be used on level solid ground, the underneah stand again must be only used on level solid ground but can be very difficult to get onto its stand if you have no experience with a bike. The weight of a bike can be enough to make it fall off its stand if on any incline.

If anyone is wondering what the last 2 post refer to, we had a spammer on the forum he is now history and his spam posts lets get control back of this great forum and get back to some real subject matter, cleaning cars is more important than having to clean forums of pathetic spammers. SC

On a serious note, most Public Liability Insurance policies exclude the movement of vehicles, so unless you have a Motor Trade Road Risks policy that includes motorcycles (most generally exclude motorcycles), if you spill it and damage it, you'll have to pay for it!

Best advice as above is to get the customer to move it.
