Well, you may be picking my happy butt up. I have a hard time remembering where the rear brake is. On the "thing we shall not mention due to threadjacking" both brakes are up top. Or I'll remember and skid the rear tire.

I'm gonna be entertaining.

Don't worry, we've ALL been entertaining at some point on this ride! ....Except Sito. But we'll bring cameras.

Joel was standing at least 70% of the time I saw him last time I went so he is trying :)

But he stands very straight in the elbows and knees, might need to loosen the elbows and try to tuck feet in a bit so knees naturally grab the tank. holding the tank with my knees helped take the weight off and felt better. But I am a noob just figuring this out myself
