Eek Virginia Standing on Pegs cause you're hot Law

I read the rest of the posts and I can't see any reason that it would be illegal to stand on the pegs if you're not being reckless. I, however, was just pulled over and issued a summons in VA for just that. I was on my way home from work (about a 10 min drive), it was a bit hot so I was standing up on my pegs to get some more airflow traveling about 45mph with very little traffic. I saw the police car but didn't think anything about it. Sure enough he pulled me over and cited me law section 82-1-6146.2-905 Riding Improperly in the Roadway. I still don't agree with this citation and I hope I have some recourse so if anyone is able to offer advice it would be much appreciated.
