    Highway pegs - revisited

    Hello everyone!

    I'm resurrecting an idea I haven't seen mentioned in a while: highway pegs for the XB12s. Before the jeering starts, this is for those of us who actually ride longer distances than just the corner Starbucks and back. This thread (https://www.buellxb.com/forum/showth...hway-foot-pegs) had the cleanest looking home made ones I've seen. Does anyone know if there is something comparable for a 2005 XB12s? Or is anyone interested in fabricating any?

    Thanks.

    Why not just ask him to make a set for you? You could be “the only other guy with highway pegs on a XB”. However TPEHAK does like to be unique, so it probably won’t happen. But for the right amount of $$$ you could make it happen.

    I would, but unfortunately it shows that he was banned. I haven't been active on the forum for a looooong time, so I'm not sure what happened.

    I've been known to do some mileage
    I have an old set of 5-0 Dro case sliders that work well as highway pegs without looking like highway pegs (thankfully). All I did was slightly space out the sliders and cut some traction in the ends for my boots to stick better.
    The moral of the story is look for case sliders....
    See? Stealthy...

    Dude, your bike looks freaking slick. Every time you post a pic, I get jealous.

    Those sliders might be something I could use, too. That trip to the Dragon (from TX) is going to test my endurance. Might be nice to be able to switch foot positions, as needed.

    Thanks for the compliment The mods I chose have been a work in progress for over a decade now on many, many XB's

    The STT seat makes the seat height tall but my in-seam is long enough so it's worth the TON of taint padding. I don't notice the lack of tailbone support because the crossroads clip-ons lean me perfectly into the wind at about 80 or so, so I can just relax and sort of float against it for hours at a time. I got lucky with the sliders and extended them after I found out they worked as foot rests and melted my boot on the headpipe (oops!). Just put on the hand guards and like the wind break so far, but unsure of the look. Still gotta impress them ladies at the stoplights
