riding position

I am only 6 ft. tall, but the foot peg location on my '04 trike has got to go. Any ideas on how to move them foreward a couple of inches? Also my hiway pegs have my legs so spread out my lower body looks like a catcher mitt. Not a pretty site, I assure you. Not to mention it is very uncomfortable. Any ideas? :lol: :?: :lol: :?:

Kuryakyn makes a repositioning mount that will move the pegs forward two inches and down one inch, I think. It does move them but I am not positive how far. As far as the highway pegs go, try moving them a bit closer to you so your knees are bent when on those pegs. You may find that a bit more comfortable. Only other thing is get an older wing, like 1970s bare, without any tupperware. That is the only failing these bikes have. You need to spread your legs too wide to use highway pegs, and the stock pegs are too cramped for real longtime riding.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
