On dirt bikes, on a track, the foot goes down all the time for stability. In the desert or forest, putting your foot down is like stepping into a den of rattlesnakes. There's a good likelihood of something biting that foot!

With three wheelers, there is a strong temptation to put a foot down as that rear tire isn't in your view. But the ATC will VERY quickly remind you that is not a recommended maneuver.

On a quad with the wide front track there is far less temptation to set a foot down and it is even more difficult to do.

In a Baja, I've NEVER had the temptation to set a foot down!!!! Although there was one Baja I rode in which I kept my feet on the tunnel and the rusted remains of the heater channel because the condition of the floor pan had me concerned about un-intentionally setting a foot or 2 down. The owner had brought it to Cali from Ohio.

I would think that the right foot would be down most of the time in the baja. Laughing
