Kuryakyn Switchblade Peg 4445Don't laugh, but I'm too short for most highway pegs. I have a transverse V-twin and my cylinder heads get mighty hot. My legs are too short to fit comfortably around them. I'm left with nothing but the same tiresome pegs in the same tiresome position, making my Achilles tendon feel stretched and abused like an old rubber band.

Switchblade pegs are the answer if you find yourself in my position, or if you want a footrest that gives you the full features of a peg and a board. Made by Kuryakyn, the Switchblade functions like any other peg with wide rubber grip surfaces and polished metal, but a concealed heel rest gives your feet more options. With the heel rest in position, you can rest your tired dogs.

I'm not going to buy footboards because I like the rotational freedom a peg offers. The heel stirrup option with the Switchblade means I don't have to compromise, which is great because I hate to compromise.

Kuryakyn suggests these as a great set of forward mounted cruise pegs, but they can be mounted anywhere a peg can go. Offer these to a weary passenger, or use them to eliminate the strain on your tendons from vibration.

The more comfortable you are, the longer you're going to be able to stay on the road. Ironically, being an endurance rider has more to do with the right equipment, and less to do with what you're actually willing to endure.
