Because hanging my right knee out makes it hard to work the pedals.

The trouble with golf carts there is not enough gut or leg room, something has to give, you can move the leg , you can move your gut, I have seen some carts going down the road with a severe "PORT" list--don't know if Monroe makes load levelers for carts

As a tall guy with limited leg room in the cart, my left knee usually is swung out. In fact, I often drive barefoot to get the extra inch of legroom without shoes. However, the other day it was so cold out I had both sox and shoes on and kept the left leg in tight. I love the golf carts, but wish they made them with an option for more leg room instead of one size fits all. On the other hand, I have seen several shorter people use a gas pedal extender or put a pillow behind them so they can reach the pedals.

Beware of the Whacker!

Lots of posters on that thread we haven't heard from in a while.
It's harder to hate close up.

My wife calls it "manspreading" ;-). I met two separate carts on the Sumter Bridge a couple of weeks ago and as narrow as the cart lane is, 2 men had their stuck out way too far meeting other carts. The idiots are lucky they didn't get hit...………
For each of us, life is a journey. Where has your life taken you? Your entire life leads to the next step, the chance to define yourself by where you're headed, instead of where you stand. Today is the day you introduce yourself to your destiny.

If we see the knee out, it means their stomach is so large that is the only way to fit, so stomach has room to hang. So your lifestyle is the cause and effect. I am sure their wife loves the look.
Do not worry about things you can not change

Not just their wives, but any car/cart that is in close shot--sometimes blinders are necessary really hurts the eyes-an old statement about the Villages, the women are old enough where they can't get pregnant, but the men look pregnant

Add the knee stick-out to signalling for a left turn at dusk/dark using your left arm instead of turn signal.
Love it!!

Sort of along the same line, speaking of the “boys”...
Gentlemen, if you’re going to wear baggy shorts please, please learn to sit as if you are wearing a kilt. The view of those old “guys” really is repulsive and very rude to share in public.
