Installed hwy pegs on Givi Bars

Finally found a setup I like. Didn't want to drill into the Ravetech skid plate so I decided to piece together my own pegs for the Givi bars. The brackets are Drag Specialties 1" clamps, and the pegs are universal cruiser pegs. Total cost was about $70 Canadian. Super comfy.

Only drawbacks would be the weight of the pegs I chose (approx 1lb each), and the fact that in case of a tip over your pegs are exposed (but I dont really care about that, cheap to replace).

Very nice. I have mine but still need to install a bunch of stuff to get everything mounted up.

Get busy living, or get busy dying...

That looks good, if a little high.

See how you like it after a long trip. Looks like it might put extra weight on your tailbone, if that is ever an issue for you.

They look good-all black, like the bike and bars. Are the pegs Drag Specialties too?

Pegs are made by Rivco. The angle of camera is off as they are not as high as they look. I'm 5'11" 32" inseam and they are a nice relaxed cruiser feel. I'll put em through the paces this weekend.

For me, Highway pegs just allow for a change of position. On my last bike, which was a Harley, I constantly switched back and forth from footboards to pegs on a long ride. I agree they look a little high for me but they do look good.
