That short sleepy rider..

Postby tom84std » Thu Aug 01, 2013 8:51 pm



With my 2X4 passenger peg jury rig we made it back home in a fair amount of comfort. What I didn't mention was that the day before I had relocated the passenger peg to the unused saddle bag mounting point by stopping in a small town and purchasing the correct size metric bolt to mount the peg to the unused mount. It moved the peg upward some six inches and forward a few. She said it was perfect and we rode happily until it broke. That's when I moved the peg back to it's original mounting location and added the blocks. Tonight I mended the broken mount by tig welding it with stainless rod and making it a bit heavier. I've been toying with the idea of building a three-point affair incorporating the original passenger peg mount, the muffler mount and the newly mended bag mount. To that I could mount a nice FLOORBOARD and be done. On the plus side is that nothing would be permanent and if by chance I break up with shorty I could easily relocate the boards for a new, taller girlfriend.

He better hope she doesn't troll Goldwing message boards, or that day might be coming sooner than he expects! :)

I can see "Shortie" chasing Tom84 around the house with a huge iron skillet with full intentions of making the skillet make a nice "gong" noise as it impacts his head.

A taller girlfriend.......um, whats not to like?
