Wow, 4 years and still no hiway pegs?
Don't mind me, I just came across this. . . I wasn't thinking about getting some pegs for my 950. . . that would be waaaaay too gay. . . and I'm not gay, at all, not even a smidge - well, I do like poetry and wildflowers, so maybe a smidge. . . I was just looking for a coffee-cup holder, cruise control, shift-light and a drivers-side airbag.
But damn, it would be nice to stretch out on those longer trips - what? did I just type that out loud?
And don't forget about the nice cool Va-jay-jay!
Thanks for your continued patronage of this thread; I value your opinion tremendously, since you are obviously a man who clearly values function over form:
That being said, highway pegs on an 9x0 are undoubtedly ridiculous.....unless you ever ride one far enough to actually need them.
Once I start riding my 950 more, I may think about Hi-Ga....oops, WAY pegs. Think of how much more comfy I'd be.............
Oh, and my ZX, yeah, you'd be correct, that's all about form and that's it! The poor thing is a bag of shit, but at least it LOOKS the part of a "sporty" bike. It's a stock shock that I glued some extra shit to and put a yellow spring on, and I made up some covers for the stock calipers so's they look like 6-pot AP's, and so on.
I've got highway pegs on my 990. They're located just behind the shifter and brake. I use them offroad too...
One of the main reasons why there are so many Hardley riders out there...perfect birthing position.
I'm looking for a way to mount floorboards too. . . my feet are becoming too fatigued.
Anyone find a manufacturer of floorboards for the 950? Maybe some of you have found a way to mount a JCWhitney floorboard for a Honda cruiser or something?
I have highway pegs on mine. I just got a pair that clamp onto my crash bars and fold away when not in use. There are lots to choose from on eBay or online shops. I forgot where I got mine. Keep in mind where you want to mount them when buying. I would be nervous about any sharp clamp edges on the side of the crash bars next to the tanks.
To all the naysayers- I use my bike to ride several hours of slab to fun dirt locations. Isn't that what the bike is for? Unless of course you trailer it....
The highway pegs let me stretch out my lower back and also cool my thighs, especially the right side next to the exhaust. I do not use them very often, but when I do it is very nice to have the option.
I dont have a vagina to cool, like some of the, boys, responding here. If you want to stretch out your legs, that is if your legs are man size, you can try the pegs at JC Whitney, about 20. bucks a pair.
Don't forget the King and Queen seat, Apehanger handlebars, and staggered dual exhaust while you're at it! (all also available @ JCW)
I just thought of something if one needs to stretch their legs! :eek1
Expensive but... http://www.advdesigns.com/pralhipebl.html
Just spent two full days in the saddle riding offroad trails, rocky washes, waterbars, tight switchbacks, gravel, etc... in every position from standing, side to side, tucked... you name it. During the last 45 miles of highway slab back home I was relieved to have a bit of rest for my pounded arches.
Got my highway pegs from JC Whitney.
And... like I really care what others think about what I put on my bike for an exhausting adventure trip.
I believe CJ Designs sells some for those who are interested
This is what I did:

Just think.....this started out by only adding highway pegs....NOW LOOK!!!
You've go to post that pic up. . .front page photo candidate! Seriously, I'd buy that beast.
Of course, I'd have to buy an SE for my dirt rider.
I have some on my 950. Despite the suggestion to just stand up, that isn't always an option, nor does it help if you have arthritis. Some of us have lots of knee and hip problems, and being able to extend your leg can really make a difference. Be glad if you don't have this problem! Wish I had knees that work right!
They sell folding ones at JCWhitney, cheap!
