Is anyone else?

Finding themselves riding with their feet on that rear pegs? Alright , quick explanation.. When riding solo I find that when I put my feet back and rest my heels on the passenger pegs my knees lean up against the side perfectly. It is really comfortable.

I do occasionally ride in that posture, but only when traffic or hazard risks are minimal.

I do that as well out on the open freeway... The BMW comfort seat is to low for me and it helps my knees...

Re: Is anyone else?

Sometimes out on the highway to give my body a different position. Did it quite a bit on the FJR since it was more compact than the RT and I'm 6'1".

I did that a lot on LD rides. Did a lot of moving around, standing on the pegs, etc. to keep circulation in my legs. Hooking my feet over the passenger pegs helped a lot on long straight areas with little traffic.

Sometimes I sit on the rear seat with my feet on the front pegs for comfort but I'm a giant!
