But I do like the idea of a crash cage with highway pegs, maybe Im a contradiction, but I just dont want to lose my lean angle

You're the one that said you were afraid. Fear is an indicator of uncertainty. I was only suggesting you try to feel more certain or sure of your cornering limits.

And your Harley analogy is hardly fitting, and the statement itself is silly, if you think my setup is even remotely similar to a Harley, or my lower fixed pegs limiting my "speed" in corners. All things being equal (actual peg location the same, one fixed and one folding), I would imagine you're not flying through turns scraping your folding pegs all the time.

To each his own I guess....as the topic was about lowering pegs, which everyone knows decreases lean angle.

Seems as though I am being misunderstood. I hope nobody is getting offended, but anyway this seems to be a picture thread so here is my setup for foot-pegs since I am very tall.



I dont really like it and plan to make my own setup, along with a lot of other ideas, when I am finally able to get a TIG welder.
I mostly commute now and it works fine for that

I put the buell pegs on mine and like it. It looks like you added a bracket that drops your bracket and moves it back? I suppose that would be nice but it looks like it kicks the pegs out quite aways, which I guess would make it hard to shift. How tall is very tall?

I never even noticed any shifting problems because of the angle but when I put the bracket(http://www.svracingparts.com/product...006&id=3103869) on the linkage was hitting the sidestand little lever thing and it just needed to be bent a little, also the exhaust was hitting on the other side but that was easy to fix too.

Im over 7' and the stock bars have been fine for me along with the taller suzuki gel seat

Therein lies your problem.

The SV is too small for someone of your stature. Period.

And your footpeg assembly does look awkward with the angle to the shift lever. Looks like your foot should be on the hingle/plate.

You need a tall bike my friend.

Nah...that blue RF1000 (TroyLee Designs paintjob, Zemke pattern) is older, having been retired last year. I started 2012 with a new RF1000 that was red with blue highlights, (also a TroyLee Zemke2 pattern).

I just replaced that one recently with a new Shoei Qwest (the white one with the blue star and "FYYFF" on the back lol)

I took a quick ride out to Devore, CA yesterday for a video shoot.

I was excited to try out the new 18" windshied for my Parabellum Scout fairing. Kinda ugly? Oh yeah! Comfortable? Definitely!



I'm sure I'd like the whole setup more if I painted it blue to match the bike. That costs money, though. And I'd probably scratch it.

It occurred to me that my setup has evolved somewhat over the years. A flyscreen and a tailbag in 2009:



A Givi A760 and an Emgo topbox in 2011:



An old fiberglass Parabellum Scout and a cheapy Bestem 929 in 2012:



The next step is just buying a BMW already set up. I've thought about it.

Route 66 used to cut through here:



Old restaurants...



The road continues off into the distance...
