Enduro guardian highway pegs.

I'm planning a big trip this May out west from Florida. At least 4-5 weeks. I just ordered E.G. Highway pegs. Was wondering if anyone has any experience with these. They are ugly, but it might be nice to stretch my legs out once in awhile.

These are fantastic, I have had the same set on two bikes now and they continue to work like new. Simple and durable.

I don't understand how anyone can ride more than 3 hours without being able to stretch the legs out. My legs cramp bad without these.

Isn't 3 hours about re-fueling time?

I have a refueling aircraft that swings down and fills up the bike while I continue down the road.

Actually the effects of cramping are cumulative for me, if I don't stretch my legs out for long periods of time the cramping comes back faster and faster each time, a gas stop isn't long enough to prevent that.

It is true I could go for a jog at every gas fill, that might help, but strangely I never do that.

Just checked their website. Couldn't find them, assuming they no longer make them

I'm looking for a set also. Enduro Guardian doesn't make highway pegs anymore according to the homepage of their site.

We're in the same boat. I've been getting my finances in order so I could afford an aluminum Enduro Guardian skid plate, kickstand guard, and highway pegs, with the upgraded hardware.

Now EG stopped selling the highway pegs!

Adventure Motostuff does not offer the kickstand switch guard (although maybe their skid plate covers it?) and I am not sure about their highway pegs. One reviewer reported they did not extend out far enough for his legs to clear his crash bars, although another review is positive.

Very frustrating!

From the general discussion subforum

Looks like EG is closing up shop which is why he isn't providing highway pegs anymore. Adventuretech may be stepping up to the plate to offer a solution in the future though.

Ack. Well I guess maybe I'll go ahead and get the plate and kickstand switch guard (plus "upgrade" mounting hardware). EG's plate
is a better value than the Adventure Motostuff one.

Of course then it will be a PITA to find/make highway pegs that fit it.
