Hi Eric,

Most certainly my cup of tea. Looks great I'm sure you will love them. I have had mine installed almost from new and love them. I think they are one of the best upgrades thus fare.

My only complaint was I personally didn't like the chrome/alloy. So as part of a mini winter build I have pulled them off (gosh there's a lot of parts) and dropped them off to my powder coater.

Well done Eric, looking great and let us know how you get on with them.

Cheerio,

Roy

My foot slides on the std footpeg. I am thinking about on grilled footpeg. This full board in "too much" to me.

Until I bought the Triumph it had been years since I had ridden a bike with pegs...I have some issues with my left hip and it was very uncomfortable for me..The reason for selecting this model was to try and put a few more miles per year than what I had in the past with other bikes..Other was a 1950 HD FL that I didn't ride much due to being a hand shift/foot clutch which went back to the hip and leg problems....And a 2005 Fatboy with 6800 miles that is now more bike than I really care to ride..

Hi Eric,

That is one beautiful bike, lovely to see.

I have a similar issue in that due to a bike accident I snapped off my left ankle and it had to be crewed/pinned back on. This meant my ankle is a little stiff and lacks the mobility it used to have. All these years later it's pretty good but I'm more comfortable with footboards.

Cheerio,

Roy

How are the floorboards regarding deep lean angles that happen on very curvy roads, compared to foot pegs? Do they touch down on the pavement any more? Can they move? I do "spirited" riding in VA, WV, TN, NC, so don't want to further limit the lean angles.

I've spent my fortune on wine, women, and motorcycles. The rest I wasted on everything else.

Hi David,

The footboards do move a little.

The topic of ground clearance has come up a few times, so I started this thread a few weeks back in the hope it would be of use to someone.

I wouldn't have thought it but, they really look good. And, definitely they'll be more comfortable. Nice job.
