Absolutely Fantastic Solution !!
First off, I am very puzzled by the other review on this product, because the writer said that he didn't even INSTALL them, but that they "looked" too bulky, and "covered the Honda sign". Who cares about covering ONE of the Honda signs (there are several of them on the bike, and it is clearly a HONDA bike anyway !! ). Well, I DID install them, and I have used them for more than 2 months now, they are an absolutely fantastic solution for highway pegs on this bike. They are NOT bulky at all, and they blend in perfectly with the bike. In fact, I have had to actually specifically point them out to people who are looking at my bike, because virtually no one noticed them until I pointed them out !. They provide a very streamline look when not in use, and they are VERY easy to open or close while you are riding at highway speed by simply moving your foot under the peg to open them ( I don't even need to look at them while I am doing this). I used them on a 150 mile ride on the NY Thruway, and it made a very long ride very relaxing. I actually purchased these directly from the manufacturer several months ago, because at the time, Wingstuff did not stock it. I spoke directly with the VP of production at RIVCO (the manufacturer) and they told me that the product features shear screws, so that if you ever accidentally dropped the bike while the pegs are extended, they will "break off" so that they don't damage the valve covers of the bike !!! This WAS a problem for the previous models of these pegs, because I was going to get them for my 2015 GW 2 years ago, but that "breakaway" feature did not exist at that time, and it was a known deficiency that would actually penetrate the valve covers in an accidental drop ( in a parking lot, etc ), and cause immediate catastrophic loss of engine oil through the penetrated valve covers. That problem has now been fixed with these new pegs for the 2018 model, since it comes with "soft" screws on a section of the mounting area that are designed to shear off if the bike accidentally drops. Otherwise, they are VERY sturdy, VERY well made, and they blend in perfectly with the bike. The powder coating is beautiful. Best of all, you do NOT get that SCRAPING that you get with other types of highway pegs when you make tight turns, despite you not even using the pegs at the time. These pegs don't protrude when you aren't using them, so they can not scrape on turns. I HIGHLY recommend this product.
