Speedway Solos (Sliders) have a long right hand peg. It enables the riders to lift the rear wheel of the deck while waiting at the start line to save the clutch.

Oh holy dang on a stick. I got the Allan Girdler = Dead story from a single source; a week has passed; I've searched every day for a corroborative story or obit, and have found only one other assertion that Girdler bit the dust, and that guy used the same source as I did.

Girdler may still walk among us, or he might be gone. I'm ashamed to have (maybe) spread hogwash. In any case, I am getting out of the obituary business as of right now.

Neither desert bike nor flat tracker, but perversely very cool in my book: Triumph Cub in a 1973 Cheney MX frame.
