First time with Speedy Passenger Peg Extensions

Did our first run today two up with my new Speedy passenger foot peg extension.

Pleased to report that my long legged wife (hhmmm long legs, as Homer would say!) loves them. Allows her to straighten her knee, plus you don't get any boot to boot interference, i.e. her toe in my heal.

In the interests of full disclosure, I have meet Speedy and I am a big fan of his products, but unfortunately no financial connection to his excellent little company, http://www.motowerk.com

Quit with the farkle reports already!!

I keep trying to get to the point that I'm done throwing money at this thing, but people like you and Speedy and few others I can mention keep making that difficult.

I see a set of these in my future. Maybe my very near term future.

Thanks for the report and thanks to Speedy for his focused efforts on our beloved V.

Thanks for letting us know.
I'm considering these myself. The GF and I are planning a fairly long ride mid-may and these may be useful. Dunno for sure yet though, as she is a short girl, only like 5'2".
Do you think these would be beneficial to someone this short?

I agree with FEC, any time you can get your/her legs a bit straighter the more comfortable it will be, so yes.

My wife also likes using the Givi top box as a back rest.

Yes, I'm going to be getting a top box with a back rest sometime in the near future...
and I understand that straight legs will be more comfortable, but that's only to a certain extent, I wouldn't want her stretching to reach the pegs.. how far lower do the pegs drop with this mod?
I might have to take some measurements.

I'm planning a C to C (basically) trip in May and I think I'd like to take her along... so I'm looking to get the bike into a good long touring mode.

Hi Guys, to start with Happy New Year.

Hope you dont mind me intruding on your thread but I came across it during a search for Peg Extensions for my bike.

The wife loves to ride with me on the back but I have a Kawasaki ZZR1100 also known in Europe as a ZX1100. Does anybody know where I can get pegs from so that my wife can ride in comfort on the back of the bike. The pegs on the ZZR really are tiny and not good for distance riding. I currently live in POrtugal and finding things like this is really limited.

Thanks in advance.

I bet there's a very good chance the extension pegs for the V will fit your Kaw. Email Speedy and see what he says.

Its only a small change, but it made a huge difference to my bride having few inches more leg room.

Cheers mate. Sent them a mail. Legroom is not her issue as she is only 5ft 2" but the pegs only have enough room for the tips of her toes...literally. And not even all five toes at that lol
