    Highway Pegs ?

    What are you using our there for highway pegs?

    Did you base your choice on appearance, lines, cost, opportunity, show sample?

    RCU has these:

    Elf Pegs are out there for the twin spark oil head:

    I believe I saw a set on the December 2012 Christmas Gift Ideas page
    of the MOA, but, I can't seem to find my darn copy!

    Any opinions out there from the long riders?

    Thanks from Long Island!

    pegs

    I tried these Jim and could not keep the cover bolts secure. I think some riders use them but they just did not work out for me. I ride very few days longer than 300 miles and have gotten accustomed to not having them.

    Treat all others with politeness. Not because they are nice but because you are.

    These were on the bike when I bought mine, not sure of the brand but they work fine.

    Mick-o-Pegs are another option

    I bought these a few years ago.

    A bit pricey but all the other styles require much longer legs and even then your legs have to be in an awkwardly high position. There are some things that I want to change on mine. I want to make some pegs with deeper knurling and end caps on them so I can tell where the ends of the pegs are easily so my boots stay on them and in the right place. I have an RT and getting the fairing halves off with these on, while not impossible is a bit of a challenge.

    I put Iliumworks pegs on mine... I really like'em. Plus, they fold away under the cylinder head when not in use.

    Those are by Hawksproducts, they also make a version that has additional bracket space for auxiliary lights...

    Wow!

    Thanks for the input everyone!

    I'd better take a boot length and leg measurement first, and then, mark my spot on the tupperware
    with all of the choices of highway peg systems out there.

    Thanks Brasscap:
    Looks like they are a Talon Falcon highway peg mount, from Hawks Products International.

    See you all on the road, eventually!

    Be very careful

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned this so I'll be the bad guy.

    The threads the valve cover bolts screw into are not strong enough to do any more than just hold the covers on.
    I know some folks have got away with it for years but that doesn't make it a good idea.
    They are easy to strip and many owners have had to repair their heads with inserts.

    If you use those points for accessories you are asking for trouble.

    Sorry but it just wouldn't be right to let it go.

    I inherited some ELF pegs on my 1998 R1100R. I find them to be well made, and they are cool. However, I do not like the geometry. I do not need to move my legs to the highway pegs on long rides. Just not the way I am wired up. To tell you the truth, the air catches my groin when I am on those pegs, and it is just not all that comfortable.

    I took them off and am looking to sell them. I need the plastic covers to cover the wires. They won't fit your bike, though.

    Thanks,
    Matt
