got the hiway pegs on today! woo hoo!

blew off work and mounted the crash bar/hiway peg setup today, looks like it's going to work out really well. will have to see about where the pegs are mounted, kind of in an odd spot. maybe play around with different locations. my machinist buddy should have my kuryakn mirror adapters milled tomorrow, they weren't locking down well.

to do: air horn, led blinkers and such, start reworking my extra seat, toc mcct's sooner or later, new grips, looking at some new bags and backrest soft trunk, harley muffler conversion, probably a couple other things.

i think i am gonna really like the new pegs. oh and that tank bag is the best piece of luggage on the bike, magnetic and hasn't scratches the tank after a few thousand miles.

ride on!

i don't know, they were already on the crash bar and have no name. kinda figured they were kuryakyn knock offs. they seem pretty darned good, heavy steel and thick rubber.

Did you have to fabricate the mount for the pegs or did they go on directly?

It all looks nice
