Default passenger footrest ?'s

i have the adj cct pass footrests on my cross roads.
my wife loves them. the only problem for me is they
keep hitting the backs of my legs when taking off from a
stop or slow speed turns . you cant take a full step. i
know, lift your feet is what i will be told. i guess im afraid
of dumping it if i dont have a foot down. this is the first bike
ive had this problem with. since i have never heard this mentioned
by anyone else it must be just me. so let the berating begin.
the rest of the bike has grown on me. love it on the road.
just not confident when stopped or slow speed turns. lot
heavier than the vtx 1300C. 3000 miles on it now.

so does anyone else have this problem, too--irv

I don't have a problem with it, but I did notice the passenger pegs on my XC seem to be in the way when walking my bike.

Morning Irv!
I don't have the adjustable mounts and have the same problems as you plus have had the wife pinch my calf between her foot and the peg while getting on the bike (hurt like hell). To me little nuances like this are tolerable as this is the first bike I've owned that the manufacturer spent a little time on passenger comfort. If this setup keeps the backseat noise down I'll take the hits on the back of my calves!

Glad to see you're packing on the miles now!

The same problem with the vision but it's the tipovers that can catch you good... I had to learn to pick up my feet rather than let the motion of the bike do it. As far as walking the bike, I had to learn to take baby steps and not let my feet go behind me. Same thing on turning at real slow speeds... do NOT put a foot down... sit up and ride thru the turn.

I hadn't heard anything since my dealer told me they faxed their estimate to the adjuster last Wednesday. I called my claims rep yesterday afternoon to find out what was going on and she was ticked to find out that I'm still in limbo. She called the adjuster who called me soon after to tell me he's been trying to get an estimate from the dealer. I told him that he was faxed last week then he changed his story and told me he had been trying to contact the tech that did the estimate and had not received a fax. Now he's supposed to go to the dealer tomorrow and look over the bike with the tech. I hope that the popping noise he hears when he pulls he head out of his @ss gives him a little initiative because the wait has been way too long and I'm spending way too much on gas for my truck.

Between extra gas costs and having to make a payment after the 10 day payoff from the bank expired I'm out about $450 that I'll never see. The only good that's came out of this is that the adjuster that looked over my gear was fast and generous!

At least you can put them up out of the way when moving the bike
around. i found out im better off on the bike than beside it
pushing[tipover club]. i can push backwards , but let the bike
do the work going ahead.
