LOVE 'em, and great pics! These are on my "eventually" list, but a grantour bag and hyperlites are the next upgrades.

Do you mind if I asked where did you get these, and do you need any adapters to make'em fit?

I have these as passenger pegs on my 800 they work great have to by the right adapters. I got my adapters from cruiser customizing and bought the swingwings from a local dealer for half price some one had ordered them and didn't want them.

A great idea. If I have one comfort complaint about the Vulcan 900 (now that I've replaced the seat ;-) ), it's the short pegs. I'm a little over 6'1", and find I have to twist my feet slightly in. This would certainly take care of that problem.

As an aside, I sure love that burnt orange color.

sure, i got them from phat performance, i order alot from them and they are great. The swingwings are kuryakyn part number 4467, you will also need the splined adapters which are kuryakyn part number 8813 (for front pegs). To install just remove the retaining clip at the bottom of the pegs, its really easy. Hope this helps.

They really change the whole feel of the bike for us taller guys, love to have my feet kicked out then curled up. Short guys will never understand the trials and tribulations we go through .. hahahhahaha just kidding

What seat did you go with?

The Mustang One-Piece Vintage seat. It moves you up in heighth about an inch, maybe a bit more -- very nice! -- but be warned it also moves you forward the same distance. For those of us with long legs, that can be problematic. Having said that, though, it oddly enough feels great...and not just because of the extra padding, built-in "backrest" formed by the tall L-shape of the seat, etc. The inch up and forward makes the bike -- for me -- feel more manageable, more like I'm part of the bike rather than just sitting on top of it. While my legs are just a bit more arched now, it's not to any degree that's uncomfortable. I'm very pleased with it.

The pegs, however, continue to be the same problem they always were.

Here's a pic of the seat:

looks like heaven for ass. You think it was worth the money? I love the stock seat , for comfort, but not looks.

If you're just after looks, there are probably cheaper alternatives (the Mustang DayTripper and the Kawi gel seat are both less expensive, I *think*)...but for comfort it's definitely the best bang for the buck. It ran me about $350, and for me (and my passengers!) it was worth every cent.
