I have never thought about engine guards or cruise pegs for my bike. That is until I took it to Maine last year and sorely needed something to rest of the ole foot on.
I am heading to South Dakota in a couple of months and dont want to be with foot issues.
I like Kuryakyn and am somewhat torn.
From what I can tell..and bare with me for as I said, I have never thought (nor looked at ) guards or pegs...that they have 2 options. The first is the engine guards that have the built in foot rest (kind of expensive) or the much cheaper cruise pegs. I am opting for pegs as I dont want to fork out that much cash for engine guards (and I really dont like the look of them).
My question is...if I purcahse the cruise pegs, do they just mount onto the bike? Do they extend out far enough to make the ride more comfy? Are they easy to install for the non-mechanical guy such as myself?
Thoughts? Other options?
This is what I was looking at:
I am kind of waffling a bit. Now I am looking at the Kury 4581 highway bars. They dont seem to obtrusive and I dont mind the look. Thoughts on those?
