Watched that happen on my buddy's bike after he hit a bear. The bike turned and then the tires caught and it flipped. Mind, the bike was done by the initial impact anyway.  :003:

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 put the same ones on mine as well.  I clamped them on a little farther back on the more horizontal bar.  They help out a lot on long rides.

I had these on for years... they fold away inside the Upper Crash Bars.. I'm now looking to build my own Back Rest, for those really Long Haul transport stages.

Hey FreeBirdBeachBum - how are the pegs working out?  Are they gripping tight?  They look nice in the black and I am thinking of getting them, just want to hear how they turn out first.

Hi,

pegs look good, I've only had my Explorer for 2 days but had already researched fitting some highway pegs to the lower crash bars. After seeing yours on the the bike I'm definitely fitting some.

I've got a set of highway pegs from ADV DESIGNS. They're the best built aftermarket pegs I've ever seen.

Just wondering how the foot pegs have worked out.
Just returned from the first long ride since I installed the foot pegs. Approximately 650 mi each way to west Texas and back. The pegs worked better than expected. I laid my heels on top of the pegs for a few minutes when I felt the need to stretch my legs and felt re-born. I added the foam padding when I got home for extra comfort.

If only now I could figure out how to solve the extreme taint pain?
