LMAO

Exactly what I logged into check out today! There is a thread here somewhere about someone who paid an arm and a leg for the setup from Twisted Throttle I believe. They ended up sending them back and buying some from J.C Whitney. IIRC

Good Luck on this. I will be watching...lol

Ride em if ya got em!

Funny, I had the pegs last week for one day. I installed them and then took a ~40 mile ride to visit a friend. I found them very uncomfortable and riding felt very unnatural versus having the pegs underneath me. But I figured they were something I could get used to on a long trip. When I arrived at my friends house, I found that the pin holding the pieces together, allowing the unit to swivel, had almost fallen out...on both sides. Luckily I brought a socket wrench along, so I immediately removed them and called twisted throttle for a refund. The gentlemen I talked to said he had them on his demo bike for 2k miles without any issues and would contact the manufacture about the defect. Hopefully you won't run into any issues, if you choose to buy them.

I wasn't able to take any pics of mine, but my setup was exactly like Mack Daddy's. In fact, his photos were what inspired me to finally purchase a set.

I have highway pegs on my Goldwing and can understand the "uncomfortable" feeling you describe. I look at mine as a way to stretch my legs temporarily on a long ride as opposed to a "permanent" riding position.

In my opinion, no, they were not worth the price. Having said that, if they hadn't fallen apart after one ride, I would of kept them for the exact reason Cruiseman mentioned. Uncomfortable, but at least a different position to place your feet on long rides.

Usualy drop my legs to stretch, but if it work as a temporarily relief and able to stretch my legs. why not if the price is right.

I went with these from http://www.rivcoproducts.com
The engine guard is just a little shy of 7/8".



They work for me and look a bit better, I think.

Here are some more pics of the Rivco's









I had to run a screw into the crash bars to 100% secure them. No big deal.
I like em, nothing fancy, but they work on long rides very well. (Interstate slabs)

I do not have very good pics of the handguards. sorry
I was at an ATV dealer getting some parts for my son and they were on the bargain table. Not packaged. Dealer said give me $40 if they dont fit bring em back. They are made for ATV's I think. They are called PowerMadd and only attach in one spot but they do keep wind rain bugs off my hands.





The extensions were thrown in on the deal. I keep those on all the time.
