new 09 owner in WV

Hi, we recently got a green o9 and we are looking for accessories. Does anybody else think the footpegs are sometimes in the way or wrong position? Thanks ,JIM

I've got longish legs so only time I notice them is when I scrap the feelers.

Welcome Jim,

I can't think of a better state to live in an own a V. WV roads and the V are a perfect match. Have fun!

The fact that they're so well-positioned for riding puts them a bit in the way when stopped. You'll get used to them there and learn where to put your feet. I'm short and put them behind the pegs, tall guys seem to put them in front.

I've done the exact same thing and like the change very much. In fact, I probably got the idea from weljo2001 (like I do alot of other good ideas).

Notice how clean his bike is in the photo. He never rides it! Not!
