I have long envied my brothers with their highway pegs. When you are loaded up and riding a 12 hour day, it is nice to have the option. So, in prep for the ride I was supposed to take before I got sick, I got these. Plug and play. The black were more expensive. I will probably bedliner these. ;)

Took my first ride in three weeks today. Tried em out. Pretty awesome. If you have motech bars, go for it.

Now you just have to swap out the rest of the bike with harley parts and your set...

Kawa-Davidson. Highway pegs are a great addition.

Those look like they would provide more vibration dampening than my HT ones. I'm just glad to see they don't have leather tassels on the ends.

When I switched to metal pegs, I intended to replace the HT highway pegs with my stock rubber pegs, but the pivot angle wasn't right and I couldn't do it. The HT pegs are basically just a piece of 1" square tubing with a thin rubber coating. Yours are much nicer.

Under the tarp: 1960 Daimler.

I know...I feel like a douche...I need to get a doo-rag with flames on it now. ;)

BUT...my ass will be less sore on the next long ride. :character00268:

Oh, and the Daimler is not mine. It belonged to my Father in law. His dream was to restore it when he retired but he died a year too soon. Been sitting there 30 years.

Sorry to hear about your father-in-law. I helped restore a 1950's Daimler in the early 90's, great car from that era. I recently purchased a 1958 FIAT, not as great :t1202: but will still be fun

I like my highway pegs...with my drybag strapped on the back I have been exteremly and unsafely reclined on long straight roads...could've rolled onto my side with a pillow in Nevada.

Thanks Gatecrasher. It was a brutal thing. He was a good man.

I resisted the highway pegs for a long time.

I may paint em black. May just let em get dirty as shit.

And thanks Jake....of course they were cheap! (ish :character00271:)

$40? Not too bad?

I was gonna just put a big ass bolt through there with some rubber tubing, but the collapsability factor is good. :)

Bling away, my brother of the wind !!

This is coming from someone who stuck on a rear chrome
headpipe heatshield from HD, blue dot taillite, polished the rotors
and sprocket like a mirror, then.....going the other way, run full
knobbies and the bike's usually covered in dried farm slop, and whatever
twigs n' such that get jammed in while riding on "KLR Blvd.", the track that
circles the property.

Ride 'em if ya got 'em, shiny or not. LOL

Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeap
