Highway pegs

I'm loving the 2000 1100 RT but I'm thinking I need some highway pegs before my next SS1000. Are there any solutions that don't require screwing into the cylinder covers? What's out there?

Sold!

I'm the new owner of Dark's RT. Yes, it was priced right for me. What a great bike. I picked it up on Tuesday and put about 400 miles on it. I'm loving it and can't wait to put many more miles on it....

I might be back in the saddle again real soon. Let's get this thing moving. I never have been a Bob Dylan fan so I'm still lost on this one. If I happen to be in the area and can figure this out I...

I'll be lurking here for a while. No more tags for me until I replace my bike. Back in late July I totaled my VStrom when a bulldog ran out of someone's yard on the attack against another dog. The...

For those of you who have ridden or owned both, I just tested a 2013 FJR for about an hour today. Great bike but a bit heavy at slow speeds and the steering feels a bit heavy for what I am used to. I...

I just put a set on my VStrom and love them so far. Only about 500 miles on them and not a ton of off road. I'll get to it if it ever thaws out in GA.

Rain...rain. I'm sick of it.

I would love to ride if this rain ever stops. It has been raining here in Newnan for three days. I'm going to head to savannah this Thursday if it ever clears up.
