    Howdy
    Just did a 620kms trip this weekend and was feeling it a bit by the time I got home.Im 6,3 and I have forward controls on the bike.
    By then end of the trip I was really starting to feel pain in my inner thighs and hips.
    So I was wondering if I could put boards on it in the forward position and if it looks half descent.
    Also do they affect the lean angle much more than pegs.
    Cheers

    You could look at pushing ur controls futher forward or adding  some crash bars with foot rests, it will allow you to stretch your legs out.  Floor boards do reduce your lean angle a bit, my fatboy improved alot when i got rid of the boards and put forwards on.

    HD used to make a mini-fb that may solve your problem. There is also the other option of a foot peg that has a heel resting place ‘built in’ that can be flipped out on the move. Kuyrarkyn I think makes it?

     Agree, the Kuyries are Switchblades and they also make a stirrup style which I use. I’m 6,2 mostly leg and find floorboards too high and restrictive as they force your feet to be flat on the board and offer little adjustments if any.

    The stirrup style cured my cramps.

    Mini footboards, got them for the wife as pillions but she hasn't been on for a while so decided to try them on the front. Can be adjusted to any angle and give a good feel under foot.

     No Bob, have not tried those bear trap footpegs. They look so much more comfortable than footboards,

    Do the guys at bear trap make seats?

    You guys are so helpful.As for the items you guys asked about  I couldnt see anything on the website.

    Maybe try Oxford St in Sydney they would definately have something you all could adapt on to your bikes.
