I got one myself. It’s the first bike I ever took offroad. I tried standing up while I was on the beach and it felt really unnatural. Made me think “How the hell do people stand up while offroading??”. Watching F9’s video made sense why I don’t feel comfortable standing on the 390 ADV, there is nothing at all to grip with your knees. Literally just balancing myself on the pegs lol. Other than that, the bike is perfect.

I haven’t found that a problem myself. Hold the bike with ankles, calves, knees, thighs…everything you can get in contact.
