recommendations on what brand of hwy pegs

Postby Butch Davis » Wed Jun 29, 2016 6:19 pm



question on hwy pegs, I am only 5'7 on a good day, But on long rides even my legs get cramped. It would seem my legs will hit the fairing. I know there are a lot of different ones out there. Ergo 1, 2, 3. what is the difference. I would not like them to stick out like a sore thumb. Any help would be great. 2013 Goldwing.

I have Ergo II with six inch arms and the pegs rather than floorboards. I am about an inch taller than you so about the same as far as leg reach. I experimented with 2", 4" and 6" arms with both the boards and the pegs and I finally got to the 6" arms with pegs. They can be folded up fairly neatly when not in use, and are there when needed. As they are chrome plated, they are not obtrusive or out of place on a bike with chrome elsewhere. I have no experience with other than Kuryakyn products for this application. If you can find the 6" arms with the pegs in a kit, that will be the least expensive for you. Buying extra arms and the pegs, after getting the kit with the boards made it an expensive proposition.

Thanks for the information. I will go with the 2s more than likely.

I would suggest you call the folks at Mick-O-Pegs and tell them your problems.

I have been extremely pleased with mine, and if you get into a super tight twisty, the peg will not ground out and take you for a flying loop. Instead, your boot heel will touch the pavement, you will automatically lift your foot, and the peg will retract up and out of the way.

done that twice.... does not hurt a thing, not even my boot.

+1 on the Mick-O-Pegs. Had the Kury's for awhile, but no where near as comfortable for me.
