Hi-way Pegs from YANN

Been slowly Farkling the '12 bike for my wife. We'll be doing a 2K road trip soon and the bike is too naked stok.
Hiway pegs were a must for her, out last trip had us stretching our legs, so I bought a set from Yann ( Narcosis Junkie ). Went on pretty straight forward especially since I already had his Bash Plate mounted.
They fold up out of the way really nice when not needed, the design has them folding if bike goes down. AND at 31" total length her feet will comfortably rest even with the Crash bars.

I use them and I'm not tall 5'10" with a 30" inseam if that helps.

I use the Yann skid plate/highway pegs and am 5'7". I need to move forward in the seat a little but it is fun to imitate my cruiser riding friends with the pegs. They work really well for stretching the legs for a bit on long rides too.

I have Yann's skidplate, and I recently sold off my Dan Vessel Highway bar and purchased Yann's highway pegs.

I am thrilled with Yann's stuff - top notch build quality and I've never seen anything packed so well.

I much prefer Yann's pegs because the extra length means that I do not have to wrap my legs around the crashbars. The shape of the footrest and the rubber pad really keep my feet planted on the pegs.

Two thumbs way up!

They're attached to the skid plate, so no different than removing the plate.

Ok, if for nothing else than to keep track of it myself:

Givi crash bars; SWMotech centre stand; LeoVince Evo II slip-ons; Rich's fork brace, farkle dash, mirror extenders, gps dash, and wheel spacers, and (soon to be fitted) footpeg lowering; narcosis junkie's skid plate, highway pegs and (soon to be mounted) raising links.
