I do it all the time, some more scary than others. First time the peg folded with my foot in it, heel then hit the ground and it kicked my leg up & backward sending me sideways on the bike - big pucker that day.
My son likes to drag the pegs while going straight, he weaves in his own lane. It also makes any tailgaters back off really fast, by the way he's doing this on a Yamaha Raider (1900cc). To be young and brave again.
I just rode The Dragon (and 100+ miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway) and had the time of my life. Me, three friends and beautiful weather. How could you ask for more? I highly recommend to everyone that if you're anywhere near Western NC you must ride it and the Skyway. Of course I'm lucky - I live in North Carolina now.
Ha, watch this and then think about scrapin a peg. For those of you who don't know the area, this is Deals Gap aka "The Dragon" more sportbike wrecks in this 11 mile stretch in a summer than all total wrecks at Daytona Super Bike races combined. 318 curves in 11 miles. Average normal speed through here is about 25 mph. This goldwing averages 60mph, does the run in 11 minutes Deals Gap on a goldwing
I saw a video of him chasing a Ducati 990 for a while, he tired of this and passed him, and then ran off and left the Duc. Ther's good riders, and then there's "Yellow wolf"
original battery 6yrs old
the thing is i ride in warm weather for a few days, then the next day it hits 30's degrees, and its dead the next day?
then i use a battery tender for 15m and starts up, drive it for 20mins, then shut it off, it starts up. so its a cold temp overnite issue...
