Default Re: reason behind turning the fuel petcock off?

I had a bike, since sold it, that my knee would hit the petcock and turn it off. Care to guess how I found out what was happening?

So embarrassing to be cruising down the street, fat dumb and happy, pretending you're Peter Fonda and have the engine sputter and die only to look down and see that little lever in the horizontal position.
All of my bikes since that one have the petcock where my knee doesn't touch it.
