There will come a time as we get older, when we will have a hard time getting a knee up.

Have gotten my knee down a few times at The Ridge and Pacific Raceways, but no photos for proof. I instinctively ride with my knee closer to the bike than most riders (see attached photo). Being 5'7" makes it harder too as compared to taller riders.

When I scraped the pegs the instructors told me to get my fat ass further off of the bike!

Kevin told me that I had "duck feet" and to get my feet back on the pegs.
