    So do I, but the model I use is mounted high enough on the vertical bars that it's not a problem. We have six different models in that catagory....GF, GQ, EF, EQ, and E.5F &Q.

    Default KQ Mike-O-Pegs

    Over the course of 3 years I slowly ground down two sets of the Kuryakyn Ergo II with Lighted Cruise Boards (http://www.directlineparts.com/produ...tr=4&mdl=&mdy=). Got the KQ Mike-O-Pegs and no longer have any issues in the Twisty’s ( http://ridingiswonderful.com/page13.php) . These Mike-O-Pegs mount to the vertical crash bar and are great for long distance touring. Combined with the Ultimate Seat you probably will never ever get more comfortable on a Goldwing.
    The Mike-O-Pegs are not as rigid as mounted pegs. I actually put a set of the new Kuryakyn Tour-Tech Cruise Mounts with Trident Dually Pegs ( http://cyclegiant.com/products/20628-tour-tech-cruise-mounts-for-1-1-4-engine-guards?from_search=1 ) just above the set of KQ Mike-O-Pegs. These are 1 1/4 inch mounts so, you will need a 1/4 inch spacer to fit the 1 inch vertical crash bar on the Goldwing. They are really nice for stretching your legs out and do not interfere with the Mike-O-Pegs. Best,

    Jay recently added this new page to his web site that is intended to help select the best Mick-O-Peg for each rider.
    http://www.ridingiswonderful.com/page48.php

    Your E-mail response will usually focus your attention toward one or two models.

    In the near future, as DDKing said, you can expect to see input about Kury's new Ergo III Cruise Mounts.

    Dude, that makes no sense. If you lean hard in the curves the switch blades will hit way before the Mic O pegs. Your pegs are mounted on the horizontal crash bar. When I had a set of them, I ground them off before I switched to the Mic O pegs that are mounted up higher on the vertical bar.

    I think that; you "believe you lean hard", but you can't be leaning over very far otherwise you would understand what we are talking about.

    I had a set of Kury's on my first Goldwing. I couldn't get comfortable with them until I went with shorter arms. They were nice after that, at least until the scared the crap out of me in a tight turn! I tried mounting them on the upright bars, but just could not find a position that worked for my stubby legs, so I have not had any hyway pegs since.
    I did sit try a set at the Mick-O-Peg booth at Wing Ding a few years back. If I were to decide to give pegs another try, It would be them.

    I had the same problem with Kury pegs. My solution was spray on bed liner. They held up for two years and then when I traded the bike in on a 2010, I moved them over to it.

    Default Highway Pegs

    I first tried flood boards and was wearing them out in the turns, and once I installed Mick-o-pegs I was complety satified. It's nice to not scrap them when you get agressive. Mick-o-pegs and a good back rest makes riding long distances a pleasure. Be safe and enjoy the ride. Larry

    Got a set of these in the garage in great shape with both 4" & 6" arms that I could let go shipped for $150.00. If you're interested, hit me up with a pm:

    no more KuryKrap for me..
    .. tried 3 sets and none last more than 25,000 miles...
    (when speaking about how long they last, it's miles that count, not years since installed)

    The arm and mount hold up.. it's just the foot rest that does not..
    (made someplace else maybe?).

    After about 20K miles they look like this:




    So my fix was to remove the part that does not last.
    Remove the bolt off the end and you're left with a nice peg that does not rust or peel.

    I really don't need hwy pegs the size of running boards from a 49 chevy.
    These short pegs are as comfy as anything else I've had.
    All I really need is someplace to temporarily relocate my foot to keep the blood flowing.
    An unexpected side benefit is no part of the peg scrapes now..

    Folded down view ...



    Folded up view ...



    I put a short rubber sleeve over the shaft.

    My foot is only size 9...

    works for me...
