Mick-O-Pegs

Postby captscotty » Wed Aug 01, 2012 8:21 am



Been running Kuryakyn boards for a year and had the entire top plate, rubber and all, depart on me the other day. They've been OK I guess, but was wondering how folks like their Mick O Pegs. The DD scares me a bit with the bar outside the boot. I'm 6'2" so am considering KA, but being restricted to just 30 degrees of bank might not cut it since I'm an aggressive rider, even with feet forward. Just want to get something where the fairing isn't digging into my calf in the cruise mode, you know?

sorry the boards didn't work out for you.I have mick-o-pegs on my 2012 wing for about a month now. take getting used to for sure. mine were easy to install approx an hour, but found them to be some what difficult to locate when trying to set my feet at first. I have boots with a vibram lug soles that don't quite slide off the peg when trying to get to the factory peg for braking. (unnerving to say the least). found the mick-o-pegs to be very spongy with thoughts of foot drag if not careful. i have got to the point where setting my heel on the pegs and ball of foot on the top of the outside bar canting my feet out a bit seems to most comfortable. i'm looking at getting the boards along with the new linkage system called comfort controls by roadsmith introduced at the wing ding last month. you may want to look at that as well. hope this helps you, of course my experiences may differ from yours. good luck

Looked at Roadsmith...WOW they're not giving those away!! Lots of $ for 10 degrees of knee flex, eh? If the Mick-O-Pegs are too flexible, maybe I should look at an Ergo II with Switchblades or something. Main thing is to stretch a little without getting calf cut into by fairing. Search will continue...

I've had them on my GL1500 for several years.
They are typically not for use while taking corners that are more than a sweeping interstate road.
They will scrape the road surface when you lean over.
However - as a place to put your feet while grinding out highway miles they are superb.
Any new postion is welcome when doing 600 to 1000 mile days adnthe lower than other place is ideal for getting a good stretch in my opinion.

If you are riding the twistys - your feet should be on the regular pegs ;)
