I had a set on my wing when I got it, I drove around for a while and didn't like them. First I had trouble shifting with the heel toe shifter, I like the old way better.When I would stop to put my feet down, I would have to stretch to touch the ground and I'm 5:11 If you can try a bike with the boards firts, to see if it works for you.

Thanks
I Love my Markland floor highway boards with heal toe shifter on my 86 SEi. and Markland highway boards. I'm used to them and they ar the only way to ride for me.
My question is for highway board. I cannot find Markland for my 09. I ordered a Yuryakyn highway Boards yesterday.
I'll wait for the floorboards with heal toe shifter for later.

I have the Kuryakin boards, and heel toe shifter on my 2001. Like them very much on the highway, around town not so much. They also limit your agressive riding a little, but the older I get the less of this I do. I would say like the previous post, try some before you buy if possible.

Ride safe, and often. :D
