    Simple solution to that problem, FLU farm, is to sit on the bike backwards.

    Did you ever give that a try?

    No, I didn't, since it wasn't exactly an expected situation.

    But thankfully the car behind me, a VW bug, was close enough that I avoided hitting the gas cap with my private parts.
    Had to think quickly on that one, but convinced the bug's driver that he had hit me, since I didn't have a Reverse and he had four forward gears.

    I'm sure he eventually figured out that he'd been had, but I got a few bucks from him to fix my license plate holder. He was on his own for his dented hood.
