At what speed do you guys start to tuck (i think thats what it is called)?

I got on the highway last night for the first time and around 60mph i had to tuck cuz i felt so wobbly.

thanks

I love seeing folks in a full tuck at 60mph....that is so damn funny. You should be fine up to probably 110 or so, otherwise buff up them arms..

You can ride on the highway easily over 100mph with one hand sitting straight up... two words...Body Positioning.

I very rarely tuck unless i am at the track, basically, if I go WOT I will tuck, otherwise... Riding casual around town no tuck.

everytime i'm wearing my backpack and hit those tight sweeping right handers at 35 i tuck. KNEE OUT, too. slap hands! :**** j/k i'll usually try to get down outta the wind about 95 or so, but only a bit... not a full tuck by ANYONE'S point of view. my chest'll be on the tank, but just the lower part, and my head will still be above the WS, but that's during MY "lapse in judgement" times as well (or as they're REALLY called... "balancing out my shit times". :)
