Re: GS can do!

That rider is not using good form When I stand, my hands and feet are still in the proper position to work all controls. That rider is standing on the passenger pegs. It would be hard to ride very far that way unless she were out in West Texas, New Mexico, or Arizona on one of those REALLY long straight roads. Toss in even a mild bit of twisty where gears have to be shifted and that isn't gonna work.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: GS can do!

I doubt she's worried about all that. As long as she's being seen.

Re: GS can do!

Feet forward pegs or floorboards are impossible to stand up on. Can just barely bounce your butt an inch off the seat when going over RR tracks or a pothole. Passenger pegs are the only option.

Re: GS can do!

You can test this at home. Sit down in a chair or couch. Extend legs but keeping your feet flat on the floor. Now try and stand or even just get your rear off of your seat. Ain't happening unless your day job is Circus Soliel.

Re: GS can do!

I remember a HD commercial from when I was a kid "0 to 60 in 1 gear." Or was it "0 to 60 in 2nd gear"

Re: GS can do!

I rode pillion on a Harley once...(once! Lol) It didn't seem to matter when the guy shifted. Seemed to me he just shifted whenever he felt like it. Or wanted to hear the engine's pitch change. I dunno...
