See a bike knocked over - what's the etiquette?

I'm visiting NYC for a few days, and notice a lot of motorcycles being ridden and parked along the street. Where I'm staying, I walk by a covered motorcycle quite a bit and this morning noticed that it had been knocked over onto its right side, cover still on. It was parked perpendicular to the curb, so its just lying on its side. Its covered so I can't tell exactly what it is, but it looks like a mid-size sportsbike, can't imagine it being anymore than 500lbs.

Do I try to stand it up?

I live in the city, I would also recommend not touching it. Folks need to take pictures as the bike is found for insurance claims sometimes.

Just the thought of seeing my bike like that makes me shudder.
