If I'm riding around slow, like 35-40, I usually stay upright. When I'm on the freeway, I crouch down onto the tank.

Is there a certain speed you guys usually crouch down?

Almost always! It is more comfortable and less drag...plus...I don't get blown around 113 pounds is difficult to keep on a bike upright.

usually i hug the tank right before I get on the bike. then i stroke it and tell it how much i love it. what a good bike :)










seriously, it depends on the situation. If i am on the highway and floating thru traffic, I'll sit upright until I hit around 80, even towards 90 sometimes, other times if i get tired and it is a straight line w/o cars and shit in the way, I'll lay over the tank just for a break.

There are two times I 'hug' the tank (it's more of a lean over type thing):

When it's raining
When the throttle is pinned open

Usually around 80, when I am passing an oncoming truck.

"Passing an oncoming truck." ???

So you hug the tank when you're on the wrong side of the road? Or when there's a truck in your lane coming torwards you? Shouldn't you just get out of it's way instead of hugging your tank? :confused:

I think she means on the highway.

I tuck when I go down high street past OSU campus. (25 mph zone)
do this in 1st gear so your revs are up.
