Offroad pegs have no fealers DOH

So put on a set of those d2moto.com pegs last night. Besides the face I think I will swap the spacer to the other side (cut off, move to other side and add washer for material lost to cutting) I am quite happy. but once they where on was talking to dad about the stuff he ordered for his pegs on a Honda Magna when I realized I had no feelers on the new pegs. None of the off road pegs do. So what do people do here, IE do you just lean further and scrape something else or never scrape and never have a issue.

Get your butt out of the seat and don't drag hard parts!

Agreed. As long as I shift my weight, nothing touches.

When I took my police rider course on the harleys, we could make them touch at a walking pace by standing up and forcing the bike down.

I'm not always sarcastic.
Sometimes I'm facetious.
Or ironic.....

If a tree falls in a forest and lands on a politician, even if you can't hear the tree or the screams, I'll bet you'd at least hear the applause.

No problem. I am sure you will only drag things like exhaust or the center stand if you have one. Just be careful exploring your limits. If you do a lot of parts draggin on the streets the most likely outcome will soon be you picking up your bike. Tracks are a much better place to do this.

Keep the Rubber Side Down.
