So, I wonder who was first with the legs stuck out, Your photo was 1948 march, Rollie Free was September 1948 !! I tried it in the seventies at Silverstone on my Blue Rap' Not very well !! But got past Roger Moss on his brand new 750ss Ducati, It's not easy !! Cheers Bill.

I believe Rollie used the legs out profile himself at Daytona, not sure when, but prior to his 1948 Bonneville achievement. He wasn't the first though.
