Installed highway pegs (w/pics)

For anyone interested, here are some of the 1inch TRex highway pegs installed on my MC Canyon Cages. They come with two different arm lengths and they are fully adjustable depending on where and how you want to mount em. This is the position I like.... best blend of comfort, looks and a bonus added fairing protection.

I plan on installing t-Rex pegs to t-Rex cages this year. After years of thinking that there’s no benefit to pegs on an fjr, I’ve figured out that they are beneficial on a long ride. I put my feet up on the sliders of the t-Rex cages and realized- yes, this is a primo position to stretch and just move a little. Maybe a Christmas present to me.

I used to think that about pegs on sport bikes as well...UNTIL I got the old school style big 4 inch R&G puck frame sliders for the VFR, and realized just having the ability to rotate your hips the opposite direction from the sport position every so often is key! When you think about it from a medical perspective it's actually superior to pegs on a cruiser....cruiser you go from comfy hips forward to WAAAy comfy couch. On the sport bikes you go from sport (if you're up on the tank) to relaxed back the opposite way...I love it.

Yeah they are. My bike is now named The Apache for obvious reasons...lol

That pic looks fine on my phone.... when it uploads to the site it puts it sideways for some reason. Maybe the site only accepts horizontal photos...

Bill, I installed T-Rex pegs on mine this summer. They really have added to my riding comfort on longer rides. Now if you would sell me your Dumbo ears, at a reasonable price, you'd have more than half for the pegs right there. Just say'n.
