:) :) :) Went out for a ride today on Key Biscayne and was scraping my right Footpeg on the floor during some cornering. Thought I share it with my fellow Stryker Boys n Girls :) :) :)

looking good.. Ive already had to order a new pair of shoes. ;D My commute to work is 30 miles of twists and turns. I love how it corners with your heel and peg dragging.

I've ridden around 10,000 miles or so on motorcycles and still haven't scrapped a peg yet. I think the first time I do it its gonna scare the crap out of me :)

I'm scraping the pegs all the time, left and right. I ride with my heels on the pegs, toes outward kinda like highway bars.

I really dont want to get some nice aftermarket pegs just to have them all scraped up the first day. :)

I have the Switch blades on my bike and already ground down the OEM scrap bolts or what ever they call them. Found a great replacement, a lot harder to grind down. 316ss 1/4 thread by 1/2 thumb screw. Works Great. I've been grinding the **** out of them and there still new. Sit back a grind Boys 8) 8)

If you scrape foot pegs your going to scrape the foot boards. Thats what they're there for. Nobody looks at the bottom of them anyway.

i have scraped on both my HD (footboards) and the stryker, I can easily say the stryker wears away much MUCH easier and sounds much different due to how it is mounted vs the HD. Mine on the stryker are MUCH lighter due to the last week I spent in Laconia at bike week

peg scraping is so easy, and comfortable, on these bikes. We had to rename Skidmark to Sparky on our last ride, as he scraped the nubs completely off!
