Default Forward controls

Iím in the market for some extended forward controls for my 09 Electra glide. Leaning towards Hawg halters black slotted contrast cut.

Anyone run run anything similar? How do you like them? Iím 6í4 with a 34Ē inseam. Just wondering how much extra room you get over boards.

The he most important question, who has the best prices on them?

Lots of folks around here run forwards on their touring bikes. I would, but I just can’t give up my lowers. Maybe they will post up some pics today.

If price is such a big concern, why not just highway pegs?

Cyclesmith XL banana boards and some longer shifter levers will open up a ton of room for you.

I have highway pegs but in traffic you are constantly changing gears and braking so you have to keep pulling your feet off the pegs. Forward controls would be more comfortable.

I will be putting Forwards on my new Road King Special for the exact same reason as you as soon as I pick it up. I don't have any pictures available to me at the moment, but I have run Jay Brake controls on my last couple touring bikes, and loved ever second.

I have these on both my bikes and if there should ever be another Harley touring bike in my life it will be one of the first things I ever do to it. Yes, they are THAT nice and comfortable.

I was at a bike and BBQ thing once and when we were just standing at the bikes waiting for others to arrive, it was funny the comments that people made about them and that they were actually taking pictures. Some liked them, one guy said they looked like a ridiculous set of skiís LOL. One woman did say she was going to buy a set for her husband though, I wonder how he likes them.

I had highway pegs and mounts that I never even put on because the boards made such a huge difference. Iím with you, I wouldnít want anything else.

Question

I had Jay Brakes on a 98 Fat Boy and they were very comfortable. I also have thought about this on the
Street Glide. What are other options beside Bad Dad or Jay Brake.

I put on a set of Accutronix forward controls for a customer, they're not cheap but they're beautifully made and made in Arizona.
