Default Cross Country passenger floorboards/pegs

I rarely have a passenger on my Cross Country Tour, my wife has her own bike, I'm curious what you might have done to replace the floorboards with pegs that are lower profile or visually more appealing? I would love to see pictures

Hi Icewnters,

The support brackets for pegs and floorboards are different since the floorboards have adjustment options. I don't believe that pegs can be adapted directly to the floorboard support. There are two bolts on each side that hold those brackets onto the frame. You may find that in order to get aftermarket pegs you will need the standard peg brackets. I have a 2013 CrossRoads with factory passenger pegs and have occasionally thought about getting floorboards for my wife since we ride together. Would you consider swapping?

As you look into your options, let me know if this would help.

Let me look at some pictures and see what they look like, considering BBob's comment about removing the support brackets, I might find a nice set of floorboards that look good while flipped up.

Looking at a CC or CR will show you what a CCT looks like without passenger floorboards. Like what has already been posted, the support brackets are different between the passenger boards and pegs. I'm admittedly biased in favor of the CCT as I think passenger boards look great where the pegs look a bit too small for the application. The pegs look natural on the steel frame bikes where, to me, they look a bit lacking on the Cross bikes. Different strokes for different folks and all that. Modify your bike as you see fit.

All the best,

Mark

You can just remove the floorboards if you don't have a passenger. Pin has a little clip holding it.

I like my floorboards. They make for a more comfortable ride with my feet down flat. But then again I'm OLD !

If you can get your feet up on passenger pegs and ride your arms are longer than mine.

I lay down on the tank and ride sometimes with my toes on the passenger boards.. And if you believe that I got some swamp land in Arizona I'll sell cheap.

The more pics I look with passenger pegs vs floorboards, Iím with you, I like the floorboards better. I did see some Arlen Ness floorboards that look great flipped up. I live near Strokers, maybe Iíll swing by and see what Rick Fairless has..
