Footpeg rest "plate"

Has anyone here replaced the rear foot pegs with the flat foot plates like you find on touring bikes? Only reason I ask is because my wife has been complaining that she can't move her feet around much and would like the option of the support and movement.

I thought I remembered someone posting something like that years ago but can't remember...:beatnik:

Yes, there is a guy who did a video compilation of his farkles and the passenger footboard was included on it... I can't remember WHERE it was, but will take a look

This is more recent than you thought, but perhaps this will help?

EDIT: Try video 2 of 4.... about 2:20 he starts to talk about the passenger footboard

Cheers!
