The GT Sit Up

Unlike many here I need to work on my girlish figure.

After careful research and testing I have developed a sit up that can be done on a GT while riding.

While in 1st gear @ ~20 mph sit up straight and even lean back a little. Then with clear road in front of you, unshift to 2nd and rapidly peg the throttle. Before you are torn off the bike, lean forward using only your abs and not your hands.

Repeat many times.

Unfortunately this exercise has limited if any value when done with lesser bikes like the ST or FJR.

Advanced version

When you have mastered this, try it in Montana with a parachute attached to your neck!<g>

That would be a level II version of this exercise.

I was into the other regimen today, grinding off the feeler and the side of your boot. What I don't understand is, I still have embarrassing chicken strips on the front tire, even after that. I guess I need to up the preload and loose some weight

I have the same thing. 3/4"" strips on the rear and HUGE ones on the front. And my left boot needs replacing. Oh well.

Painful, but unfortunately true. This site needs the following two smilies added ASAP, they come in handy as one gets on in age.
