Higway pegs

Postby cruiser1800 » Tue May 19, 2015 12:48 pm



I just bought me a 2006 Goldwing trike and I need to be able to stretch my legs out while going down the road. Any suggestions on what highway pegs to buy that I guess are adjustable?

Thanks
Rodney

Kuryakyn Ergo II are not really adjustable, but have 2" 4" and 6" arms available. The Ergo III from what I understand are adjustable. I had the Ergo II Highway Floorboards with 6" arms, was not happy, changed to pegs with 4" arms, tried 2" arms and finally settled on the pegs with 6" arms adjusted to a totally parallel position. I have a 30 inch inseam.

Thanks for the replies, I decided to get the Ergo 2 like themainviking has, since it sounds like we are the same height.

Got my highway pegs today with the 6" extensions, I haven't gone for a ride yet, I think I am going to like them. Nice looking

Thanks

Not "if" but "when" the KuryCrappen Ergo pegs' chrome gets all pitted & rusty, check out the Rivco highway pegs for the GL 1800. Much better chrome quality, much cleaner design, much more adjustable and the footpeg mount even has a recessed allen-head clevis bolt to adjust the plane of the footpeg itself to the exact same angle as the plane of your boot-sole in whatever position your feet are most comfy in once you have found your "sweet spot" for up-down and fore-aft positioning of the mounting clamp and arm-stem. On a prior GW I once had a Kuryakyn Ergo right side footpeg clip (only) the left hind leg of a deer. The deer "kept on truckin". The KuryCrap peg didn't. It snapped right off- at the biggest part of the whole Kury assembly - the huge globular round part where the stem mounts to the crash bar clamp. Snapped the mounting bolt and stem housing itself in half. I couldn't believe it when I saw the "inside" of the metal - it looked like grayish "pot metal" - and almost porous enough to be seen by the naked eye. So porous the metal looked almost "sandy". Their highway peg chrome is even more lousy than their trunk rack chrome. KuryCrappen to the max. YMMV. The Rivco components are nice solid steel. Heckuva lot cheaper than Kury Ergos too.
