another use for highway pegs
« on: June 15, 2012, 01:21:25 am »
I bought larry bucks highway pegs, put them on the bike and have been enjoying them so far this summer, They were expensive but i love stretching out, Now the bike has been broken in i have been doing some riding, The pegs were a bit of a worry in sweeping corners as i have ground down the nuts holding the foot pegs on, they now have a 45degree grind on them. but today I was thankful for them as I stopped the bike in a driveway, I did not see the 3 inch drop between the driveway and the road and lost my footing when my right foot went down, I could not hold the bike and pulled my back out. I was so happy when i saw the bike resting on the foot peg. Now I will never bitch about the price as i figure they saved me hundreds in repairs,

Andy,

Glad to hear the bike's O.K......bummer about your back tho.

You are not the 1st person who has had a tip over with my pegs with no bike damage. If I could add a brace behind the fairing, they could be even better. Thanks for the kind words, glad you like the pegs.
