Full TKC's on this trip. Best in the rough stuff but the rear wears at @ 4k miles even with increased psi on Tarmac. Next rear I put on will be a K60 and see how I like that.

pegs

Has anyone changed out the pillion pegs with a platform type? After too many miles my wifes feet hurt her, even with riding boots, so I am looking to see if I can find some replacement pegs that are more of a platform type. Post up if you can.
