Have you ever wondered why so many of us change out our foot pegs? Sure a lot of the reason is to achieve a custom look or to follow a theme, but there is also a purpose behind it. Whether we realize it or not, so much of the vibration produced by the motorcycle is absorbed right through our feet, and that translates to rider fatigue. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) stacks the shelves deep with one of the largest selections of aftermarket foot pegs around.
One of my favorite pegs come from Avon, and is this Custom Rubber and Black Anodized Peg set – Part # CC-610374. It’s super comfortable and durable rubber compound give you superior comfort and unbelievable vibration isolation, while keeping a stylish look for your ride. Designed to fit standard male mount clevises, there aren’t many bikes these won’t fit. Finishing off this peg is a billet end cap that adds to the great looks of these foot pegs. For those of you favoring chrome, have no fear, there is a shiny finish version available as well. (This series also has matching grips and shifter pegs too.)
For those looking to incorporate a heel rest while still reaping the benefits of a vibration dampening peg, this isolating style set up is the one for you. Not only do you benefit from a more comfortable peg, you also gain the stirrup that almost acts as a floorboard without the added weight. One distinct advantage of installing a set of stirrup pegs is that they prevent melting of the heel of your boot on the front head pipe of your motorcycle when you want to rest your feet. And just like the previous set, you can get the corresponding grips, shifter pegs, and more.
These are just a couple of the pegs available that are designed to reduce the vibration inflicted upon us as we ride. Cruise on over to the website for K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) and take a look at all we have to offer. Your feet will be a lot happier if you pick up a set.
