Using passenger pegs?!?

Was behind someone on BW8 today and I noticed that when they would reach a speed of about 55-60 they would move their feet up and back onto the passenger pegs. This struck me as..well dumb. Anyone ever see someone do this? Maybe he thought they were speed pegs or something hahaha.

No full tuck, think if he had been able to hit 80 in the traffic I might have seen it though.

i wouldnt ever do that.. i remember a couple years ago when i started riding i did it.. but that was because i was bored on the highway and alone... and i was like i wonder what happens if i do this. i feel like it its actually a bit unsafe especially in traffic.. down shift? not today. using your back brake? not today.

Maybe he wishes he had rearsets, and the only way to cure this mind raping wish is to use his passenger pegs?
