Default rear wiper position

I just realized something... I have always wondered why Honda had the off position of the rear wiper horizontal. Looks like it's not aerodynamic. But I just realized after looking at everyone else's pictures... they are all in the vertical position. Is that a "modification" or is mine incorrect?
Thanks,
John

Same here, vertical. How did you get yours to stop in the horizontal position

Yep, it works. Motor sounds a bit cranky, but it works. I have actually been thinking about removing it. And covering the antenna and sprayer with a sharkfin.
