Highway peg ?s

So Im creating a xmas wish list and highway pegs are on it. Of course the peg choices are endless, but I think I have it narroweed down to a few. I like the look of the round bar style ones, but the flat pedal type might be more functional.

The part Im stuck on is the engine guard mount part and whether to go adjustable and what kind of adjustable.

I think Id be fine with the fixed ones, but if I go adjustable, what's more adjustable....long offset, short offset, or the 360 one?

I would get the most adjustment you can, I had some Kuryakyn ones on the Valkyrie that I spent months adjusting every which way till it was comfortable. Me personally I'm not crazy about the ones that mount to the engine gaurds, I think it puts your feet up to high. although I havent seen too many other styles of mounts that seems to be the most popular.

I like the flat pegs better... Adj would probably be the better way to go.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

Thanks Chey....I'll keep an eye on that thread. The streamline would match my current floorboards and pass pegs.

Im leaning towards the plain ole' $30 non adjustable ones. Once I figure out where I like them, why do they need to be adjustable? Sounds like a waste of money for the others.

I think I'm putting the lower fairings on my bike over winter, gonna buy the primed ones and have Krystal's dad paint them for me.

So No *Bling Bling* Bar for me.

I'm getting the leather soft lowers that zip on and off the stock bar, they are great for cold nights and rainy days, but zip off for nice days so your legs can get some air flow.

Yea I seen them.. The lowers I'm going with have the vents installed for air and the gloveboxes. I've liked them since I first seen them, but wasn't sure what would look like until I seen a Classic with the trunk pulled to look like the Electra Glide.

$159 for a POS compass?

Do those leather lowers have space for highway pegs?

Seems like a nice accessory to stow in your bags.

I assume its pleather...kinda like tank/car bra material.
