Default Tall girlfriend

I have a 2017 Road Glide. The stock passenger pegs have my ladies legs all cramped. Any suggestions?

get a shorter girlfriend?

have you moved the passenger pegs to their lowest position? if that still isn't enough, there are passenger mounts that you can adjust.

Rivco adjustable passenger floorboard mount. Rotates 360 degrees. 9 positions, made in USA. Much better quality than Kuryakyn. You can use your floorboards, or add theirs. My wife loves ours.

No 1 On the Rivco although the chrome on mine is thin enough to see through. They don't offer parts service so I';ll have them re-chromed, BTW All the original chrome on my '10 RK is in great shape and I only use chrome wax not polish so its nothing I did.

My chrome is good. I bought it in 2011. What year did you buy it? Did you talk to them about it?

Red face

This is one of those subjects for which we really should have a dedicated section IMHO. Between us we vary greatly in size and shape as riders, as do our passengers, but in addition we have veterans and disabled riders with challenges to overcome, who collectively need to get comfortable and, if necessary, make adaptations.

Jus' thinkin' out loud!

In the case of our tall lady, the local Harley dealership should have a 'fit center' or similar, where they can advise on making both riders comfortable. On a nice day they may even have tall lady customers you can talk to!

Mine is the opposite, I had to buy the reduced length brackets from HD for my road king. The stock brackets go down very low
