As they are walking while sitting on the bike, the back of there legs are hitting the pegs. They are all too short...
BTW I'm 6'4" & have never experienced your issues.

Maverick--just give me time. I'm sure at some point I'll be able to fulfill your particular dream of "graphic." Brena's pic should tide you over for a while.

Yes, tis as Kawi_jm says. I now go to great lengths to avoid parking anywhere I'd need to push away from. I visit the Barnes and Noble on Bay Area almost every day after work (have to check to see if any new manga has arrived), and I make certain to slink into some hidden, out of the way parking spot if I can't find a convienent place to pull away from. I'm not hung up on appearances or anything--although I do tend to pull out my "better" jeans and cleaner sneakers to ride in, but surely that isn't vanity run amok. But I'm not wild about the stares I get when I'm forced to half- unbalanced, ballerina style tippy-toe that bike around.

I rarely walk the bike. For me, it's usually just coming to a stop and putting my feet down. The Strom's pegs are positioned right where your legs go. I also bruise easily, so even just light taps throughout a ride will cause bruising. :eh:

Okay, now I have seen too much of you MH ladies' skins. Close the thread and lock it up. I will never ask to see ladies skin again, on this forum or any other forums.












JK. Thanks for sharing pics.

My foot turned into a box after couple of ant bites at MSRH.

Thanks for sharing nutmegchoi. Yes, yes! The ants here are wicked. But, I understand that your particular shade of toenail paint is a delightful color this season for temporarily boxy feet, so no worries. :icon_bigg

Perhaps if any of the ladies here also have pictures of those lovely callouses that boots sometimes produce. Now, where's my camera. . .:laughing6
