Passenger Peg replacement with small floor-board?

All,....I am a DL 1000 newbie. My wife complains about the passenger pegs,.. anyone have any recommendations for a mini-floor-board type replacement for my passenger (who bought me the bike for my birthday) it's the least I can do!!!!

Thanks

Sure wish there was something out there for this! I keep seeing requests over and over. What's up Suzuki? I'm about to get rid of my 'Strom because my wife can't get comfortable on the little pegs.

You might be able to put something together from the Kuryakn product line.
- Pegs | Küryakyn
They have several different peg mount styles for the cruisers and might be able to use a peg adapter to fit.
Kuryakn is pricey but make a very nice product.
The biggest complaint I have heard for passenger pegs is they are to high and people want to lower them so the passenger isnt riding like a jockey with there knees to high.

Several have used Goldwing foot pegs, which apparently bolt right on and have a much larger surface than the stock DL pegs.

"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller

That looks similar to what Tombstone is using for the Mrs.

I believe that is for the rider not passenger.

Reread the thread. Looks like they'll work for both.

I was hunting for some myself. I did find some that would fit. Mount would need a little mod but nothing major. They are for a late 1970's gold wing, generic branding. I'm not sure the make/model of them. They cost 63$ cdn.

I'll try to find out more info.
