That is an interesting POV. I like it. But two questions come to mind:

How long was the pole and did it cause problems when turning right?

Did anyone see you doing this and call you a dork?

This was a standard broom/mop handle Radare, so it stuck out from the bike around 3 feet, It looked ridiculous which is why I only rode around the industrial area behind my house ( it was Sunday, so very quiet around there )
The biggest problem was, because we ride on the left and the broom handle was attached to the left handlebar ( Obviously couldn't put it on the throttle side ...lol ) I had to stay well clear of the kerb so as not to hit any parked cars :???:
It didn't cause any problems turing at all, right turns it was up in the air and left turns it was close to the ground ( a long ways off touching )
I think a few people saw me, I'm sure they thought I was a bit mad :huh: ( I don't care....lol )
