Just wait I have a friend who is getting some built for larger feet. Nice CNC Aluminum Billet made in the USA. He rode my KTM with Longpegs and fell in love with good pegs

Save yourself a ton of money on these:


One M6 bolt and the rubber pad comes off to expose a nice and toothy off-road perch only $119.99
  • Attaches to original footpeg mount
  • Footpegs are made out of high-grade, corrosion-resistant stainless steel
  • Removable rubber pads reduce vibration
  • Larger than original footpegs
  • Textured surface on rubber pad provides superior traction
  • Footpeg mount is CNC-milled from high strength aluminum alloy
  • Height can be lowered 15mm from stock position
  • Convertible design great for both street and off-road riding

Good point I didn't catch that on their product page. These do adjust up and down 15mm.

For the $300 plus difference, I'll take one that does not rotate.

I wonder how well those things will rotate after they get a bit of sand, grit and mud in them!

II don't think that will be a problem. Starbucks keeps their parking lots fairly clean don't they?

Ha ha!

I like the KISS principle, for sure!

I don't like Starbucks coffee. They over roast their beans. I prefer a light, Colombian roast bean, coarse ground and French pressed. I can't get it the way I want it, so I do it myself. I've pulled into Starbucks parking lots (on the bike, touring), fired up my Snow Peak, boiled some water and pressed out a slug of coffee, poured it into my camp cup and fired up the laptop on the seat of my bike.

If you single guys want to meet some classy women, do this on a solo trip. You won't believe the attention you'll get.

I'm happily married, but this kind of stuff may get you single guys face time with some cool gals

Ummm, these appear to be in the wrong place. Methinks they'd be better sold to the GSpot crowd, buying whale foreskin suits.

It gets better - the rubber inserts in the footpeg, shown in the photo? They are an optional extra

"Foot peg rubbers with damping effect for the rct12gt foot pegs."

49 euro ($70USD)

I had no idea this is what attracted all the cool gals, I am married so from now on my coffee will be made in road side parks, but I will miss those clean parking lots.

Rotating or otherwise flexible footrests are worthless Offroad, you need the imput of your feet to determine what your bike is doing...

Slanting footrest are only necessary to compensate for Duckfeet imco

This is becoming a classic "Blank Canvas" bike.

Looks like the showroom model is just the start of a custom adventure.

There are a lot of cool looking additions doing the rounds already.

Cheers
