I'm getting ready to take a long trip.... 6,000+ or wherever I land....
I have been shopping and trying pegs and have yet to find a set that's comfortable on long rides.

I've got a pair of Kury Flamin' Switchblades (for sale) and the Wing pegs (for sale) when I find a replacement. Any Iron Butt riders out there that have found a good highway peg?

I have the accutronix forward controls and when I am on the highway I am able to relax my feet over them stretched out like the cruisers do with the highway pegs. Makes a trip very comfortable.

Stickman how much are you going to ask for those swingwing pegs when you get ready to sell them? I would think that the swingwing pegs are the best you are going to get without changing to forward controls, anyways good luck on the search.

If you're serious about comfort you can adapt a set of floorboards from the Kuryakin catalog.

Me, I use the Black Widow set. 3.25" width, give or take. no more heel annoyance.

Stick, What are your plans for the ride? Going by yourself? Got a biker's friend to lean back against? I sometimes wish the fury had some type of foot positioning relief directly underneath my knees on the frame to change up positions after riding for several hours.....also, I used to have a kury bar mounted up on the front down tubes that I used as a highway peg on my Nighthawk so I could position my legs/feet higher up for a change of pace. Right now with the fury I only have two options on the bike - use the pegs, or rest my ankles on top of the pegs....get tired of both after riding a long time....

I'll be riding with a friend and meeting up with some of my riding brothers along the way.

After riding today and thinking about the pegs, I think there is inherent vibration on the right side... do any of you agree?

I'm going to look at floorboards next week.

I'll take the flamin switch blades. I'll PM you
You're first to offer and sent me a PM, so I'll follow up with you on the switchblades.

I had a post that dealt with the vibes. The guys set me straight on this topic: all Vtwins have some sort of vibe. But, Honda does do a great job counterbalancing the cylinder action.

I narrowed my discomfort down to the vibrating mirrors at high speed. I'm ok with it. there's no real solution short of rubber under the Cannellas--that would not be safe. otherwise, I don't feel anything on the left or right side.

It still makes me wonder... the left mirror vibes to where the visual is a blur and the right peg vibes just because.... still thinking about the floorboards.

I think what it amounts to is that the old VTX 1800 was over all a smoother ride due to the weight.

Skippy, I told you how to do it, so don't say there is no way. I guess when I get my Fury I will be the only one without vibes. Suits me! No vibe is a good vibe!

I stand corrected. Mental is absolutely right.

Here's his response to my 'bad vibrations' post:

1. Packing them with play sand for weight and to absorb vibes.
2. Packing them with lead shot, for loading shotgun shells or scuba weights, or led BB's and play sand mixed.
3. Packing them with soft lead rod, and play sand.

Use a vibrating sander, with out paper, or place just motor or edge against bars to pack sand. Then use plug in end."
