True. It also depends on the frequency....when there's a puddle once every mile or so, maybe you ride around. When there is one every 50 feet, you start just plowing through them.I think some just like getting muddy, lol.
Wonder why he didn't just ride the middle section? Soil looks like sand or sandy loam and not clay. If so, it would have easily went through the middle without sliding off and to the side tracks. Tire tracks would suggest he didn't even try.
I generally don't stand in stop/go traffic, but there have been times where I have stood for many miles just because it keeps my knees and bum from hurting, especially on the end of a long day of riding My helmet is also quieter when in clean air flow than it is behind the windscreen.
It always pains me to read a thread like that. So many people have no clue about CoG, CoM, Coupled and De-Coupled bodies, etc,... There was a link into there to a Jimmy Lewis article that was pretty good.
I'd have to go to court for that one. I guess for a sport bike, if you were standing with no hands on the bars, you could argue it was a stunt. However, for a bike like my GS that is DESIGNED to be ridden while standing or sitting, I'd be making the point that it is perfectly safe to operate the bike while standing and it is NOT a stunt.At a Q&A with Victoria PD I asked about standing up, was told it was against the law. That it's considered a "stunt".
Never agreed with that
Bwdmax , his son and me were riding into Bastrop on our dirt bikes a while back. I passed an HP while standing and I'm pretty sure he told me to sit down over his PA .
Stickers ??? We don't need no stinking STICKERS !
