Great Gak, sparky. I got a pair of DR pegs that give a very secure foot feel that for $15.
I have a hard time taking a week's worth of vacation money for a set of foot pegs.
That's moto camping vacation, not your wife's vacation....

I ordered a set of shit pegs off eBay for 17 bucks... Worst grip ever. Stock pegs aren't awful for road and dry. Honestly really want bigger pegs with rubber in middle that's why Suzuki so appealing. Super Tenere comes stock with awesome pegs. Only thing better than Strom.

Go to https://gl1800riders.com/forums/ and buy a Goldwinger's pegs that came off of their bike. They like to replace their pegs with floorboards. I paid $40 for mine and they are wider side to side and wider front to back. If you ride on road, they are great and allow your feet to move into different positions.

"I prefer to do it right the first time and not break down at the worst place and time due to skimping on quality."

I had a pair of Buell pegs on my BMW, they broke falling over in the driveway. POS
But with so many good less expensive pegs on the market.....
There is also the, "Well, it's expensive so it must be the best.", line of thinking.

In most cases "you get what you pay for". I prefer to do it right the first time and not break down at the worst place and time due to skimping on quality. :wink2:
Same set of $17 KLR pegs on the second bike now. I did have to paint them...cheap junk...

Cheap usually means cheap....expensive does not mean good. Do your homework. Mo Tech pegs have good reviews and I agree with the reviews. Again, you generally get what you pay for.

So if cheap means junk, why aren't you all riding BMWs? They're really expensive. You could die on a cheep Strom! That's one of the most ridiculous arguments out there, and it's used all the time. Smh...But to each his own. 30,000 miles on my cheep pegs on my cheep Gen 1 Vee and I'm still mostly alive. And to make it worse, I've run Shinko tires!

I have been all over dirt roads standing on my cheap SS pegs (Liard hwy, Depster, Robert Cambell), and when the bike tipped over at a rest stop, the only thing that broke was the aluminum peg support behind the peg.

But if people feel like they gained something by paying $200+ dollars for pegs, then I am happy for them.

I paid $150 for my shorty Pazzo levers and am happy with those. I tried the cheap Chinese ones and they were all crap. Chinese Pegs seem to be good though, and I have never read about someone having one break and causing death, but it sure makes a great one liner. lol.

PineLane Rider, my other bike is a BMW G650GS, the cheapest thing in their line-up at the time. About $7K. It's fun to ride but it's no Wee strom.
The Wee Strom rides more like the BMW 1100RT I had a while back but the Wee is much lighter.
