PFFFFTTTT....amateur, and I DO hang off. So short now, rubber will not stay on.



Most from track riding, that kind of lean angle on the street is not something I generally do.

I made some delrin peg sliders for my Husky, I kept wearing the pegs down.

My shifter's a lot higher, relatively, than it would be on a bike with rearsets, if it scrubs, I've probably already come off

And lo, he compromised with Atgmott, and verily she conceived,
and did bear a son, Notgatt. And Notgatt roamed naked,
and did bequeath his skin to the roads. And he was a wild ass and an outcast,
and was hated through all the land. And his forehead was branded, and he did be
come a sign and a warning to all the people."

Well, when it hangs down that far...

Usually I just tie it off on the bars and hope I don't get a bee sting
