Interesting Riding Position

Back in the 80's a lot of us used to ride with our feet on the passenger pegs on standard bikes. I've been doing this on the Z when cruising and it feels good, nice and comfy. Anyone else do this?

When I'm trying to get to top speed that's how I ride.

I do this on bigger bikes when I need to stretch out my legs. I've never tried it on the Z... but I also haven't spent 14 hours riding in a single stretch also.

I've gotten this tip from a lot of folks. How do you manage it without also becoming sterile? Maybe I'm just an idiot.

I tend to go the other direction and try to get my legs further forward to move my weight off my junk for a bit.

I typically let my legs hang loose (Z is too low for this, need them further forward) or stand up on the pegs if I'm at low speeds. I miss being able to throw my legs over the tank fairings to stretch out. I need to find a street bike that lets me to that. (Obvious answer = supermoto)

*confused*

Lol Kaw'ee. >.<

Been playing around with my passenger pegs on my commute (getting lots of funny looks) and I think it's just not for me. I never really was very flexible.

Still a good tool to have to keep your legs awake on long trips I suppose.
