I couldn't ride with those pipes. I get a lot of dirt bike control through my legs. A lot of people do. You can tell by looking at their MX boots, pants, and bike. Up pipes that do not snake to the inside of the frame and are outside of the bike right where I do most of my holding on and controlling the bike will not work. Pipes like that are right in my way. To me it would be like riding a horse with pipes strapped on it's side between you and the saddle. It hurts me just thinking about it!
