I found the same thing bwalsh just posted.. DMV motorcycle handbook and the MSF basic rider course use exact same language re: obstacles or rough uneven surfaces.. "rise slightly off the seat". Not super helpful for bb's case.

Guess it comes down to: The judge, how rough was the road and how long were you standing on the pegs.
He's not the first I've heard of getting a ticket in VA for standing. I've read about 1 or 2 others, think they were reduced from reckless to improper operation or some such.
