I was doing a job at an engineer's house. He was in the kitchen for 45 minutes applying three stick on numbers to his new mailbox. After he "finished" he saw me and asked, "Do those numbers look straight to you?" To which I replied, "Well... I think that. Sure they seem pretty straight from here."
After painful long trip experiences I decided to create highway foot pegs.
The initial idea was to use the passenger foot pegs and attach them to the engine with brackets
I created the CAD model and part drawings
Then I gave the CAD files to the local machine shop to produce them, but the price the machine shop guys gave me was too high. So I decided to make the food pegs brackets flat from standard 1/4" aluminum plate and gave the new files to the local water jet shop
I decided to use Ryca Motors universal foot pegs with the brackets
Then I bought the exhaust pipe heat shield to protect my legs. The heat shield is from "Buell comfort kit". Here is the heat shield and the bracket templates
Here are the brackets from the water jet shop
I ordered the screws and the spacers from MCMaster Carr.
Then I painted the brackets with VHT promer and VHT black paint.
