Video

Here is another one. Its up around 11,000' at a place called Rabbit Ears in Colorado. I almost made it too the top but it got way to steep so I stopped. The views from up there were amazing. The video is coming down from the top. Some of the hills were very steep.

Challenging. Must have been a blast on the way up! Does anyone else think those dogs looked abnormally large?

Every person operating a motorcycle, as defined in § 46.2-100 excluding three-wheeled vehicles, shall ride only upon the permanent seat attached to the motorcycle, and such operator shall not carry any other person. No other person shall ride on a motorcycle unless the motorcycle is designed to carry more than one person, in which event a passenger may ride on the permanent seat if designed for two persons, or on another seat firmly attached to the rear or side of the seat for the operator. If the motorcycle is designed to carry more than one person, it shall also be equipped with a footrest for the use of such passenger.

With that being said. Proper riding of a motorcycle when you are going over an obstacle is to raise your butt of the seat and shift your weight back onto the pegs. As you approach the obstacle you should give the bike gas to help the front end over the obstacle.

http://leg1.state.va.us/000/src.htm is full of info....
There's the letter of the law and there's legislative intent.

I suspect the intent is that the rider and any passenger sit on the seat and not on the handle bar or luggage or hanging on the side as you often see in other countries.

I don't think this precludes properly getting off the seat when warranted.

That said, there will always be some moronic cop willing to write you up for what HE thinks that the law is and not what it actually means.

and to get these things changed, I received this the other day. FYI

"This year’s Virginia Motorcycle Legislative Roundtable will be held on Sunday, September 8, 2013 at the Richmond Marriott which is located at 500 East Broad St., Richmond, VA 23219. This is where it has been held for the past few years.

The Legislative Roundtable is where Virginia Motorcyclists gather to discuss issues of importance to the motorcycling community, and to have input on the 2014 legislative agenda to be presented to the Virginia General Assembly by the Virginia Coalition of Motorcyclists.

The Roundtable will start at 12:00 P.M. and usually lasts three to four hours. If you can make it we would welcome your voice in deciding the issues that need to be addressed in 2014. In past years the Roundtable was the starting point for legislation such as Virginia’s red light bill, our prohibition against motorcycle only checkpoints, the modification of the Virginia Code to allow two two-wheeled motorcycles to travel abreast in a single lane, and legislation improving Virginia’s Rider Education Program.

If you are interested in attending we would welcome you around the table. If you are unable to attend but want to express your ideas, or if you have any questions concerning this year’s Virginia Motorcycle Legislative Roundtable, please do not hesitate to contact me.

On a final note, Tom McGrath’s Motorcycle Law Group is accepting nominations for this year’s Tom McGrath’s Leading Wheel Award. If you know of an individual who has made an outstanding effort to improve motorcycling or motorcycle safety, please send me their information and a description of their achievements. Nominees can be someone who has made a significant achievement to improve motorcycling, or someone who’s body of work over time has significantly benefited motorcycling or motorcycle safety. Remember that members of the Motorcycle Law Group are not eligible to receive the award.

As always, if you have any questions or comments concerning anything that I have written please do not hesitate to contact me.

I feel the love. No harm no foul. Been a while since you wrote a VUS LOL. I had to edit what I typed as I guess it came across wrong.

It's a silly law. I tend to ignore it when on a long ride I'll stand up and stretch my legs. no biggie
