I wonder what the second rider is thinking as he's watching this guy climb around on the side of his bike.

+1, with a good sense of humour. Just think of the attention this will get and he knew it!

It sure is a good way to scratch away any remaining chicken strips!

+2, setting up for a photo. Those are a couple of guys riding first gen FZ1s - probably FZ1 owners forum members out for a laugh.

Old school plants the butt on the middle of the saddle and leaves it there!

He is just demonstrating the proper method of eliminating chicken strips without all that risky proper cornering technique with the attendant high speeds at the apex. A desirable side effect is if done properly (or is it "more improperly?) the pegs will get bevelled as well, increasing his rider's credibility.

The next time you laugh at someone's inch wide chicken strips remember this photo and know with considerable assurance that a lack of them does not necessarily indicate a talented rider! With an exception in your case of course.

Rob

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

I'm surprised to hear some of you mention " that's a good way to get rid of any chicken strips ".

I don't see it - he's only moderately leaned over, not getting all of the rear over and certainly nowhere near all the front.

I scrape my outer toes and pegs but still have a strip. *shrugs*

His positioning looks uncomfortable and unstable. Never seen KR ride like that, if it's old school. Or are we talking 1930's old school

It's so awful that people think it's a joke...but I've seen guys put out their opposite knee out on the street. Most recently a guy on an S1000 wearing khakis.
