    Dunno if I'm right but I always thought it was because it looks like a dog sitting up with its paws pulled up to its chest ~ the front wings are the 'paws' if you get my drift?

    Another theory was that because of the driver's sitting position with arms pointing upwards, holding the steering wheel, they looked like a dog "sitting up & begging"
    The clue is in the name

    Yup, that's what I always thought too. Good questions though. Now I ain't so sure....

    I,m with Pop Shop with the driving position, Old pedal bikes like your Granpappy have also been known as sit up and beg too. And as I'm sat at the buttons I pretend I'm driving a Pop or riding Bobs bike I look like a dog beging. Have a go but you dont have to stick your tounge out cus you will drop your fag ( I did).

    Yup, driving position isn't it.

    Same with the motor bikes. Sat upright with your arms out front begging or lay down on the tank holding on for dear life
    Meep Meep.
