so ive heard of some people on long distances put their heels on the rear pegs of the ex's. i have short legs (so id assume it would be easier for me to do so) and ive tried and i dont see how they do it.

so more of a curiosity thing really. maybe they lower their pegs or something?

i ride with my feet on the rears on long trips. to be honest its the only reason i haven't removed them. neway you just have to get the feel of how to move from the front to rear

I've always gotten weird looks when I ride "superman" on the KZ (laying flat on the seat with my legs straight off the back of the bike). I don't use the rear pegs much on either bike, though, I guess I've never really felt the need. I don't see how you could put your heels on the pegs, though, it seems like it'd have to be the balls of your feet with the pipes being just below.

I do it when it's cold or I need to stretch. Never around other cars, incase I need to downshift quick.

Did it once on a long trip on the freeway, there wasnt too much traffic and i needed to stretch out, i was following some friends who took their car so i couldnt really pull over.
