So, riding to South Dakota, I discovered that with the cruise control on, you can rest your forearms on the stingray, hold the base of the steeringwheel, and by applying slight pressure to either side to turn...sure is nice, quiet, wind free, and you can hear what the beemer does best! :bmw:

I don't know... :confused:

What if you hit an unseen bump or undulation that throws the bike sideways? With hands at end of bars you'd just absorb the disturbance.

There wasn't a whole lotta unseen going on. 1 mile this way, 20 degree turn, 1 mile that way. I'll be the first to admit it wasn't safe...but it WAS cool.

Sometimes, on the interstate, I will lay my arms on the plastic handlebar covers and grasp my nands onto the covers close to the steering head area. Kind of a bicycle aero tuck.

I have done it, too, but the situation has to be right. Did it just today.
Is it right? Safe? Likely not.

Our friend Ari made a "Tiller" that attached to the mirror hole in the switch cluster...

You could lean back and drive the bike for quite a while with that thing...

I believe I still have it...

Maybe I'll send it off to CCR this year..

Sometimes I just ride for hours with my hands on the grips. Cool way to ride safely for over 55 years.
