How do you generally ride your machine? There is only one choice with this poll.

Depends on how agressive you are riding, if im going fast i stand. With passengers i sit.

About 50/50, depends on if I'm cruising or riding more aggressive.

100% sitting, but that's not by choice :grin2::nerd:

Sitting about 70% and standing the rest, that includes the occasional stomach gas release!

I opened this thread to vote, but it's not about peeing/pooping, yet both are much more important than riding.
You don't want to attempt 1 while considering 2 while riding, which puts riding as #3:)
You've got a lot of replies for not mentioning a grizzly one time in the title, go fig'er'.

I used to be up and not sit a lot more. Now I'm older and don't ride as fast so mostly sit. (except when I've had an adult beverage or two!) :surprise:

I usually stand out of a need to change position after long periods of riding more than anything else. My upper back starts to hurt after riding long periods. Standing for a bit seems to relieve that.

Sitter, until steep, then a stander.

Was kind of strange thinking about this when riding. Just recently I found that I was telling myself I need to sit more and then would. But seems I find myself standing a lot more than sitting... unless I realize it and try and sit.

And LOL Jim! #1 and then #2 but I don't feel I'm familiar with #3.

Definitely much more standing than sitting unless I'm on a smooth section of trail, usually standing, ha. I seem to make smooth sections rough with the bad lines I take, most of the time by choice, ha.

stand most of the time , i have ROX risers so its more comfortable when i do stand, i was slightly bent over with the original set up . Adjustable bars would be nice.

Sometimes my hip has some discomfort where I like to stand and shift my weight around. Also standing sometimes helps if I get a calf cramp.

I'll have to say 60/40 with that standing I seem to have better handling and speed while standing. And when I ride with RansomP "MAVERICK " I stand a lot for some reason we always get jiggy when we ride!!!!!!:rocker:
