Altrider lower engine guards and Highway pegs

Spent a little time installing Altrider Lower engine guards and then put Kuryakyn Longhorn Highway pegs on. Yes, I know that Highway pegs on an "off-road" bike is a bit ridiculous, but, I'm not planning on doing any SERIOUS off-roading. I'm 57 years old with two back surgeries under my belt, so that sort of riding is off the table for me. Rural dirt and gravel roads that I've wanted to go down, but couldn't riding a HD, are now available to explore with the AT.

But, most of my riding is on paved roads, and I like to take long rides. So, needing to change leg position and shift weight to relieve some of the tightness in my back(and sore butt) was a necessity. Let me tell you folks, those pegs really, I mean REALLY, add a comfort level to the AT that is amazing. Also added a set of ROX 2" risers a couple of weeks ago. The risers and pegs are a great combination. Next, a Corbin seat and I'll ride this bike around the world LOL.

Be safe

I've done the same: 2" risers and highway pegs on Altrider bars. Just the thing for highway touring. I found a stuffed duffel on the pillion seat worked very well for a backrest on those 300-plus mile days.

Put a Corbin on mine, love their seats, had one on my old bike too.. Been thinking of highway pegs too, found some that will fold into and around the tubes. But I need to figure out where I can mount them on my engine guards.. They are built for a beemer so not really a “direct” fit but i’m working on it...

I see the Africa as an Adventure/tourer. Do whatever it takes to make it comfortable for you. Some will be jumping cliffs with it, others bought it because its a practical, comfortable, reliable bike. Most 1200GS stay on the pavement, and I suspect it's the same for the Africa twin. Just like most sport bikes are ridden on the road, not the track.

As for the seat if you are tall, the Seat Concepts Rally seat is pretty awesome. It's a kit you install on your stock seat pan.

Looks like great comfy seat for 12 o' clock wheelies Woodzman has a similar Corbin and I'll be ordering one soon. BTW what brand are those white fogs, I've been looking and can't find any? Thx
