Felt the PERFECT highway pegs today
Okay so I stopped by a dealership I hadn't been to before to get a part and... well.. you know... I had to spend another hour looking at all the bikes and stuff (It would be rude not to).
Anyway I sat on this older Electra Glide, mostly because it had a mustang seat on it with a backrest and I wanted to see what it felt like. Well it also had highway pegs... and they were PERFECT. They ended up just above and to the right of the rear brake pedal (and I mean just). So close that I could actually slide my boot down and press the rear brake without letting off the highways pegs.
That was neat, the fact that I could use the rear brake quickly in an emergency if I needed to. But more so than that they felt like they were in just the perfect position. The glider also had a similar seating position / foot position as my Vulcan so I think pegs in that position would fit well. I had tried pegs on other bikes and they just didn't feel as comfortable, and these were juuust right.
So long story short, anyone know of highway bars that are skinny enough to allow me to mount pegs right there? Anyone have pics of a setup like that? To recap, it'd place the pegs close enough I could reach the rear brake, while still being above and in front of the floorboards.
