    Does anyone make floor boards for a 2012 DL650. Have health issues and don't want a foot to drop off the peg and hit the ground at speed. Thanks, Jon

    Yikes! Sorry for the physical issues!

    I'd be surprised to learn anyone makes them specifically for the DL, so you'd probably have to fabricate your own. I would think the toe-down position of your foot on the stock pegs might be an issue. Your feet are only horizontal when they're quite a ways out in front, like on a cruiser.

    Another option, depending on the severity of your issue and your leg strength, what about a spring-loaded retractable "leash" attached to your boot? Like those corporate ID badge holders. With enough tension to gently keep your feet on the pegs, but also allow you to put your foot down at stops.

    Let us know what you come up with! :freaky
