The pegs will scrape if you lean it over a little. The lean angle is typically better on Dynas and Sportsters.

My Road King is gone after 62k miles, now I ride a Geezer Glide. My new to me 2011 Electra Glide Limited with 7k miles, I'm enjoying all the creature comforts and the 103 motor.

I wish I had held off on the wide glide for a bass boat street bob with the 103.

That's a nice setup you got, is that the leather badlander or the vinyl, and how are you liking it?

Beautiful bike, If I had the coin that would be my long distance rig. There are a lot of haters on the forum but in my opinion you can not beat the newer Harley touring chassis for serious mile munching and reliability.

Thanks, I put more than 62k miles on my 09 Road King more than any other bike I've owned and it was great for putting down miles. In the last week I rode 700 miles just riding around town, this bike is more comfortable than the RK and I thought that was the most comfortable bike I've owned. I didn't plan on buying this bike went into the dealer for a cup of coffee and left on a new bike, got a fair price for the RK and a good deal on the new bike.

Haters will hate, no biiggie, I still wave, will still stop, still talk story with anyone and take no offense when the other guy talks smack about my bike.

It's the HD two up seat in vinyl. It rides smooth and handles well. It's my first bike so I don't really have anything to compare it to. The hard candy paint looks awesome in the sun.

Honestly a harley has probably the widest pegs I've seen on a bike. Some LSL track pegs should sort out scraping issues. I'll probably get some for mine by next summer.

I don't know how it is for others, but if I didn't have that extra length, My right foot would be slipping off a lot more with those forward controls.

The new Street Bobs are the best ones yet, and you did yours just right. If they had the factory customization last year I would be on one of those instead of a Blackline. Enjoy your new ride!
