Forward Foot Pegs
« on: March 07, 2019, 03:45:29 PM »
After my last long haul, I decided I need some forward foot pegs so I could stretch my legs from time-to-time and landed on these. I hope they do the trick.

I usually put my feet on top of the upper crash bars -  :008:  :821:

So do I. It's usually enough for a bit of relief, but I've often considered having something attached. My feet are so big I think I'd bend those. Nice thinking though. Saved me using my own brain. I wonder how they'd fare in the UK MOT. Would the be counted as dangerous? I'm asking not telling by the way.

Interesting. These are not any different than the highway pegs on Harleys... So maybe they'd be considered dangerous in UK as well? And interestingly enough, Triumph makes them for the cruisers as well...

Did you drill the crash bars to mount these?

I would be concerned that if you do lay the bike down, these footpegs will dig into the asphalt and could spin the bike around rather than slide smoothly.

See pic. No drilling required and they do fold up should the worst happen.

I've tried that but, not being bowlegged, it just doesn't work for me.  :008:

I know a few non-cruiser type bikes with them fitted on crash bars & I've never heard of them being an MoT fail - but I'm not a MoT tester so can't give a definitive answer  :027:
