Thanks guys. The wife did well! The "nut" on the ground is actually the little spring that goes inside the footpeg. I guess it bounces back when you scrape a peg on the pavement. I did put it in, I was just mocking up the install before I wrestled it back in place.
Nice, another thing on my list for whenever I can get some money.
I actually was thinking about some today when I was at the VA a guy was parked next to me with a HD and had some real nice floating boards, he said it did wonders for his back and he has similar back problems as me. Just wondering if the mini's work as well, I would think they would because they take the pressure of the center of the foot the same and take up less room so look better?
Yes! I love the mini's. I have ridden larger bikes, with full size floorboards. They are comfortable and look good enough, but to put the full size boards on my smaller bike (in my opinion) makes my bike look even smaller. These are great for comfort and looks. They are adjustable without having to take them off and small enough that I haven't (yet) scraped on a curve. Not to mention the $150-$200 price difference. So much less expensive and better looking to me. I think the adapters were $50 and the boards were $120.
