Getting my pegs on the tarmac

Simple question - Can you actually get a footrest on a Kawasaki ER-6n to touch the tarmac without biting it shortly afterwards (the tarmac that is) ?

Probably, but why?

If you're that skilled a rider buy an out and out sports bike.

Presume your knee's already down anyhow?

I'm giving you

the benefit of the doubt. The answer is yes, and usually by accident!

If you do, try hanging off just a touch

Hmm

Getting the knee down is one thing.  Grounding out the pegs would suggest a bike is being used for something it's not designed for.:blink:

Easily done when taking a HOG or full-dress tourer through the twisties, I am led to believe.

yes

I have done it twice... both by accident. I have only been riding just over year and didn't aim to get the pegs down! Both times i did it on a roundabout, didn't go in too hot, but not slow either and the pegs touched midway round. Both times it shocked me when it happened! I think it depends mostly on the bike - I would guess there is no chance with a sports bike.

Pegs down

The answer is yes... You can get your pegs down on any bike, commonly known as the hero blobs. Most people do it because they have over cooked it, I have a dozen times or more on Fireblades. The important thing to remember is that when the peg touches the tarmac you must keep your weight on it to stop  the back wheel lifting, if you don't the odds are you will loose the front or it will spit you off
