I scrape every now and again. I'm told I tend to lean more than the average person though. Don't know if that's good or bad...

As a matter of fact, I just installed Marvellas passenger pegs and the grab rails this past week. The left side peg doesn't fit very well on the 2012 because of the KAMS, but I did get it installed. Just no room for adjustment like on the right side. It will be Spring before I know how the little lady likes them, but I think they will help. I'm just down the road in Olympia, so maybe we'll cross paths sometime.

RainDragon, can you post a pic or two with them folded and not. I am curious how they look when not in use. Do they hit the back of your leg when backing up anymore than the floorboards do? The wife is with me 95% of the time. She needs to be able to stretch and move around some.

Here are a couple of pictures. I put a few more in a Photobucket album showing bothh sides and a closeup of how it fits against the KAMS. It works with KAMS but it is a tight fit and your range of adjustment is more limited on the left side. No problem if you don't have KAMS. Click the link below to see all the pics.

When you put your feet down you definitely know the pegs are there even when they are folded (see pics below). You can feel them at the back of your calf but they don't interfere. When extended you obviously don't have as much room so I tend to push my legs out to a wider stance at stop lights. I find I do that anyway with the little lady aboard because she tends to shift around a bit when stopped and I need the stability. I can see I will have to yell "feet, feet" when coming to a stop to remind her to take her feet off the pegs so I'll have room to put my feet down. Just another part of the bonding experience of two-up touring

Backing into a parking spot is different because you can feel the pegs against your calf, but you get the hang of it after doing it a couple of times. Extending the kickstand takes a little different motion with your left foot, but again, you get used to it and it has not been a problem. These are minor adjustments I will gladly make if it means a more enjoyable ride for my lady.
