I personally don't care to do it, but a buddy of mine thinks it should be possible. I'm still relatively new to riding, but I don't get anywhere close enough to the road and the toes of my shoes scrape. So it seems to me like the pegs would prevent knee dragging. Anyone here able to do it or know if it's possible?

Haha, that's the video I was thinking of when I saw the question. Good job, you beat me to it.

It's possible to drag your knee on any bike, whether it's necessary or not.


If you asked if you could drag your elbow, well, that's something else altogether...

If you search on YouTube for "Ducati Scrambler at Brands Hatch" my clip should come up. Every time I drift off line at Clearways, you'll hear stuff dragging on the floor.

No matter how short you are you can always knee drag just before you crash. I've done so on several bikes but blessedly not the scrambler yet.

:sign10:

I've ruined a helmet, jacket, and pair of gloves via two get-offs. Mangled several slip-on mufflers, mirrors, turn signals, control levers, etc...in various arseclown acrobatic acts... yet have never blemmished a knee puck! :victorious:


Just bought replacement for 6+ year old HELD Krypton's I bought "after" breaking wrist from going over bars at 20-25 mph.

Rather faded and stitching starting to let loose :)
