I wonder if perhaps we all missed the real point.
Don't go around town especially VCU standing on the pegs. I've seen most of us do it for extended periods of time out on the back roads. I'm just as guilty as everyone else of stretching my legs going down the road. Truthfully, I figured if I was ever stopped I'd just have to politely explain that I was stretching my legs and giving the rear a break.
It really sucks that it is rated as such a bad offense, but I assume it is written that way so they can go after stunters. I guess it also rules out there ever being a street legal trials bike in VA.
