Bling with a purpose....

Sunday, April 3, 2011

We've talked a lot about putting highway pegs on my bike. The issue was having already put  the fog lights on the engine guard, we weren't sure we could mount any pegs.

Yesterday we stopped at the local Harley dealer and found a pair of peg mounts that looked like they would work. We get a 20% Firefighter discount there so figured it was worth a try. I found pegs to match my current pegs, too.

We got home from our ride and Stu decided to see if they would work....THEY DID!! I am one happy camper....errrr, rider. LOL! My bike has mid-controls which means my knees are perpetually bent. On longer trips I have sometimes experienced a cramping in my hip and wished I could extend my leg to help work it out. Other times I just want to straighten my knee to help stiffness. Now I can...

The other piece of bling wasn't a must-have but it sure is a nice-to-have. I found it on eBay (surprise), but they also have a great website. We have it mounted with Loctite underneath as well as on the set screw. My odometer does have a clock function but that would require me to use one hand to click to that setting and would take my eyes off the road longer than I like. This way, it's right in front of me.

Oh, Stu got chrome bolts for his engine...pretty bling, no functionality involved. No photos yet...LOL!

Ride safe,
Stu and Donna
