Adjustable Passenger Pegs?

My wife was asking me if these are available.
I honestly didn't know, but it sounded like a good idea.
Anyone know of anything?

Nope, but I agree, sounds like a clutch idea.

I'm imagining a peice of metal maybe 3-4 inches long with three holes. It's got a U-shaped cross section, 3 holes and tapers at one end. I can't remember if the passenger pegs are male or female, but the tapering would let the little peice be either as needed. Then you could mount it up or down depending on where you wanted to move the pegs.

Something like Kuryakyn swivel brackets would move the pegs out, which would be bad since they're already way wide, so that's out. Seems like it'd be easy for someone with shop skills to build. I wouldn't know where to start.

I'm starting to think that there is a good market out there for a small business specializing in home made farkles for V-Stroms. The number of modifications people are making to stock parts or ad-ons for either Strom is mind boggling.

There really is. Look at Pat Walsh, MadStad, Paul Sas from MP Cycle Designs.... just to name a few.

Now if somebody would just make some good adjustable passenger pegs!
