I tried the old resting legs on engine bars trick last night..... felt weird at first but I could imagine that on a really hot day it would make total sense... however on a windy cold motorway at 90mph it was very odd! Especially when I tried to remove my legs and almost split my kipper as they became involuntary kites!  :012:

I do this sometimes but removed both legs at same time once while doing mway speeds and caused a big wobble, scared me a but tbh, now I remove one leg at a time.

I rest my right hand either on the far edge of the grip or on the tank when using cruise.

No problems keeping it on the lever. It doesn't move as the cruise control alters engine output. Joy of ride by wire!
Some must watch while others must sleep

One of two positions:
  • Forearm resting on the top of the tank, sometimes just the right arm, sometimes both
  • Hands wide, palms resting on the handguard mounts

Don't put your hand on your hip, or you may attract a Harley rider

I've heard that my method makes you go blind.    :110:
