No, I went on a few roads that we didn't hit when we were riding together. Just more of the same. Then I zig-zagged my way home avoiding the main highways as much as possible.

Let me know how that new shifter works out I could use more clearance when riding with my MX boots

I can tell you now it is going to be a huge improvement!!! No need to go back to the smaller foot peg after all. Still can't feel the shifter through the boot though so that will take some getting used to.

If I want floorboards on a bike....I'll ride my 1600.:rolleyes:
True enough, but with the cooler weather coming aren't the assless leather chaps too breezy?

Depends on the biker bar. I entered one in Hollywierd years ago naively expecting an experience like when I had entered same in the Bay Area (Oakland). Well. Lots of leather, lots of flesh chaps would have to be classified as tame. A whole lot of Harley's. Not a place for the homophobic or intolerant. I had a great time as did my GF but my buddy had to leave as he felt really uncomfortable. To each there own I say, one of the things I love about motorcycles, it's own gig, enjoy as you will.

I put bigger pegs on my KLR. OEM pegs were the rubber street bike type foot pegs. Absolutely terrible off road. With the wider pegs I had to lengthen my shifter and cut and re-weld the foot peg mounting bracket to get it to feel right. The front edge of the foot peg was just too close to the shifter. When they make wider foot pegs, they should keep the front edge in the same location and widen them toward the back. The TW pegs for me are pretty good stock. Narrow front to back makes it easier for my foot to pivot if I'm standing and need to shift my weight around.

"Wider" is a relative term. There are pegs that have a greater dimension front to rear, and there are pegs that are longer which thus extend farther from the centerline of the bike. If seeking "wider" foot pegs it sure helps to clarify just what one desires.
No criticism here, but try to remember folks that what is perfectly clear in your mind in not necessarily automatically clear to your audience. Helps to define frames of reference, what is relative to what else, define acronyms initially and basically try to use all those proper writing skills that our junior high school teachers tried to pound into our distracted adolescent minds.
