Can a cop give you a ticket for sitting on your tank?

So i was riding the other day, doing my normal 5mph below the speed limit lol, when i noticed this other rider hop on his tank (still sitting) and ride on it for a while before sitting back in his seat. I was wondering, can a cop give u a ticket for that, and if so what would they classify it as? wreckless driving?? wut do yall think?

a cop told me once that he can give you a ticket for riding with only one hand on the bars, like if he paced you for a mile and you had your hand on your tank or hip..all wreckless driving, and by the way a cop can find a way to ticket you for ANYTHING.

wreckless driving for starters... he can articulate that you were using the motorcycle in a manner that it was not intended to be used, hence causing a safety issue for the public and yourself

Did the manufacturer intend for the bike to be ridden like this? I don't know to be honest... Now, would I give a ticket for this? No No No, but there are some cops that might... and as stated earlier, just simply let the judge interpret the citation and the action

What about sitting on the back seat or your legs up over the winshield or sidesaddle?

And wreckless driving? I thought you go to jail for wreckless.

You can go to jail for EVERYTHING EXCEPT SPEEDING (withing a reasonable amount) AND OPEN CONTAINER... yes, you can go to jail for parking more than 18 inches away from a curb, failing to signal, failure to stay in a single marked lane, stopping beyond a designated point ect ect ect... but it is our right to choose who goes to jail... SO the answer to you Q bill is NO
