Ever got your elbow down on the road?
Scraped the pegs on your crosser on the A23?
Had your pegs fold up on you and spit your foot off?



This an absolutely unshamed willy waving thread so be proud of it and let others enjoy your tale.

I once did a track day at Brands on my R1150GS which have, as you can imagine, pretty high footpegs...which I managed to touch down at Clearways...and of which I am rather proud.

Curiously, the heads never went down.



This isn't it...just a cool pic.

All the way baby. I can assure you the bike would not go any further.

As someone once said

The only time I have ever got my knee down my arse and motorbike followed.

Mr. Tibbs hits the nail on the head when it comes to what happens if you help the environment.

Elbow down on a local round-about.

Held the throttle a bit funny like I'd seen a journo do it.

Elbow touches down and arm dragged off throttle, nearly lobbed it in the bushes.

What a silly thing to do.

Knee and Oxford Sports Panniers down on the M25->M40 slip road at a tad above the speed limit :smoke:

Found a new one tonight aswell, knee hit a cats eye. They hurt!!

On the road:
Never got my pegs down*.
Hardly ever got my knee down.
Never got any other body parts down that weren't part and parcel of crashing.

* except 2up with Funners on a rather overladen GS, which doesnt count.

On the track:
Never got a sportsbike's pegs down.
Got my toe sliders down lots.
Got the husaberg's pegs down a couple of times.
Got the GS pegs down a couple of times.
Never got my knee down.
Never got any other body parts down that weren't part and parcel of crashing.

A chap I know on a CB1300 with racing rearsets got so far over he ended up the pegs dug in and on one unlucky lap had him off

Had my foot knocked off the peg on my VFR800 once when I got a bit leaned over, and ground out the exhaust. A small scuff on the engine casing was apparent later too (running without fairings). And I didn't crash
Comes from not hanging off, and riding with some lads who were orf like monkeys.

probably all lies and not to be believed. I'm compulsive you see.

The bloke behind looks rubbish, not even looking where he is going

The only time I have ever got close to having anything touch tarmac, it was knee, followed by elbow, followed by hip, followed by arse, followed by thanking fuck for leathers on the toboggan run down the road

WUSS#1169, pipe 'n' slippers officionado. 'L'Homme Bleu qui marche plus vite', yes and keep it that way. This is also still dull

VFRs are nice, a bit like me, nice but dull :smoke:

On a VFR400 NC30 (with race rearsets) : both knee and toe slider down whilst circulating a roundabout:smoke:

On current CBR600 FX (rearsets & rear shock jacked up about 10mm) : both tyres scrubbed to the very edge, but still not got a knee on the floor (I'm a bit of a short arse with tiny little legs and couldn't have been leaning off far enough! )

Safe riding.
