Put kickstand down.
Back up to bike with your butt against the seat.
Grab right handlebar with left hand.
Grab right passenger seat handle with right hand.
Push straight back with legs, dont try to lift the bike, imagine you are going to push it while it’s laying on the ground.
Bike will raise as you push with your legs.
Trust that as it uprights, the kickstand will keep it from going over on the other side.

Been there, done that. Have owned several GoldWings and we used to help people practice this maneuver at meetings. I’ve watched a 100lb petite woman do this without hurting herself or the Wing!
