His junk will be part of the tank if the car ahead of him stops.

Nah, he can just kick his feet through the bars, swing forward from the grips, and vault over the car.

I agree! It totaly depends on the bike as to how far aft it might be prudent to keep ones jewelry.

'Seems that croc-skin seatcover could be a bit harsh on the underside of the plums.

LOL....Awesome. I was going to suggest "not being a dick" to get a serious answer, but it seems my fellow adv posters here have taken care of that. I think "Dirty Bike" is being rather nice.


For me, for LONG distance, then my seat position is always changing, even riding on the pillion seat for a while. And my seat position will always change when road surfaces change. I ride a BMW RT and a DL650, and it's the same for either bike.

Although I rarely find myself with my junk planted against the tank for more than a few seconds. If I am riding in that situation, then I will be hanging off the side soon after. When the riding situation calms down, then I moved to a more relaxed riding position. If you are going to say you are "always" riding 100%, then good for you. Might want to try a track-riding forum, because you ain't riding like that on the street, and you are certainly not riding long distances.

Yes this does sound retarded..

Oh and I do have an FJR with bar risers. Actually I wish they were another 1/2in higher and an inch closer.

I wasn't implying putting risers on an FJR was retarded, I was admitting the title of the thread sounds retarded but I still think I asked a valid question.

And it's been answered. Most riders have no need to hump the tank for general riding. Real fun on a hot day and partial tank on the FJR too!

What do you ride? I have a feeling the answer to that question will answer a lot of others.

I don't think he can physically operate the front brake. Not that it matters to him.

I've had all kinds of bikes, FJR, XX, VFR, mostly sportbikes and I suppose I just got in the habit of riding up front to lessen the reach to the bars. Whether I'm touring or in the canyons I don't really move. Make fun of me all you want, it's just something I've always done. Reading about bar risers for bikes I wouldn't dream of putting them on has got we wondering though. Here's the kicker though, I've always struggled with butt pain.

And that's the issue.

The older you get, the more that becomes an issue.


Believe me, I can always be as fast as I once was......once. I can't do it as long as I used to. I, at 41, I have no doubt that I could embarrass most of todays squids, and ALL of todays pussyfied quad riders (I grew up on them). But, as the stats show, I don't have the endurance (theres a pill for that). So..... it is what it is......I am now old. How the fuck did this happen?


That said, in anwer to your quesry, butt pain can be relieved with aftermarket seats, which limits your riding position.........welcome to geriatrics.

Interesting that people approach the tank for more aggressive riding, never considered it that way. For me it's the opposite, but I ride sport bikes.

The way the seat is angled it seems more natural and comfortable to be right against the tank, which is how I sit for everyday riding. When I ride aggressively (i.e. at the track) I actually scoot back several inches to make it easier to slide off the seat on either side, as I was taught in track schools.
