Now I have no rears so can't do that; guess I need to practice sidesaddle like GixxerBill recommends....
Side saddle is BAD for long slab'n' runs.

I put my feet actually my shins on the pegs while I am wearing my sidi boots(they have a plastic plate there for the shin protection) very confortable. I think this dude wasn't a squid because of wear he puts his feet.

Dang, I have my feet ALL over that goldwing.

Just wondering if it was anyone on here. He wanted to race me so I clicked down a couple and went from like 60 to 100 but let off after that (seen too many 5-0 on 288). His buddies were videotaping him I think...I dont know why he wasnt stunting or anything.
I saw something similar to that on the Westpark Tollway:

I was in my car and there was a squib on a kawi in front of me (helmet only), he started adjusting his positioning to put his feet on what I though were the back pegs. I was wrong!

He layed down on the tank and actually got his feet of top of the license plate. He was covering it to pass the toll and not get a ticket.

WHAT A F**CKIN IDIOT!!!!!

Idiot? I think that is pretty clever. Bet it off the toll dudes. Some of you dudes need to lighten up on fellow sportbike riders.

No.
You should've seen this guy trying to wiggle into position, he almost went into tank-slappers three times before he finally got it. I immediately changed lanes from behind him couse he really looked like he was going to eat it.

This guy was a TARD!

Same color and all but looked a little older...dude was wearing red and white J's, tee shirt and Polo (cholo) jeans. He was being followed by 2 guys in a white tacoma who were talking to him the whole time

You saw it. I din't. Sounds like he needs more pratice geting in to position. I wiggle very little if any when I get into my several different riding positions. But I still think I scare cars and other bikes because they have never seen people do things on a bike like what i do so they always get over. It makes me chuckle.

Exactly, it is just a riding position when you are slab'n it.
