Aero Highway Pegs from RIVCO feature CNC machined billet aluminum streamlined stealth pegs that flip out with a flick of your boot and have several inches of forward-and-back adjustment. The pegs bolt to the valve covers, and the set comes in anodized silver.
The pegs come in three finish choices - triple chrome plated and silver or black anodized. See recommended products.
Installed the chrome ones last weekend. Easy installation and they look awesome. About the folks who drop their bikes and are concerned about damaging their rides: I have owned my 2010 GoldWing since 2011 and have never had it fall over on me. I am always sure footed when parking it and the comment about swinging the pegs closed when parking is sold advice. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! An old adage but it works. See you on the road!
After riding from CA to NC and suffering from sore-as-hell knees, I knew I'd have to find a highway peg solution that lets me stretch out my legs. I'm 5'10" with a 32" inseam, fyi.
My 2010 is very clean and uncluttered, so since I also didn't want a bunch of hardware hanging off the engine guards the Aero pegs got my attention right away. I ruled out the chrome finish because I'm not a big chrome guy and they were $100 more -- which BTW, I get; chrome adds a whole dimension of production yield and scrap cost. I was tempted by the black but some of the reviews said they turn purple after a while, and that would make me nuts. So I went with the anodized silver.
For $300, these are a terrific value. They're made of substantial hunks of machined aluminum and the fit and finish are flawless. Even the feel of the swing out pegs is excellent, so the mating surfaces must be carefully monitored.
The installation took me 15 minutes. The instructions are totally clear. The only thing I did wrong was that I was in a hurry to remove the stock trim and I bent one of them far enough to crack the chrome plating slightly. Damn. I learned on the other side.
Apparently, Aero has made a couple of welcome improvements to the product: (1) they've cut a breakaway notch on the bottom of the pegs so if you do drop the bike, they'll snap off before damaging the valve covers, and (2) they are not offset anymore. At least not as far as I can tell -- my legs are evenly stretched out.
I mounted the pegs in the front-most position. This allows me to completely straighten my legs -- the whole reason I bought these things. I'm certain this is going to make a huge difference over the long haul -- I'm doing a 4 hour ride this week and then I'll know for sure. If anything comes up, I'll return to this review and update it.
So to summarize: they're perfectly integrated appearance-wise, the quality and engineering is obvious, and they've solved my comfort issue completely.
I'm very satisfied overall. Great purchase.
I love being able to slide these in when not in use, slick look to them.
However, I did have them pulled out after washing the bike and when trying to centerstand the bike she fell over. The highway peg snapped off the valve cover it was bolted to and oil came pouring out like a homicide scene. So, getting $2k of repairs done and she will be good as new. But...NEVER keep the pegs out when parking is my suggestion.
Just purchased these for my 2016 GL1800. As stated here, the look is clean and function is great.
The offset when mounting is from the engine cylinder spacing one side to the other. The Aero Peg's adjust for this just fine. Their positioning is quite comfortable.
I do long rides, these are as nice as my old Markland Hwy foot pads.
They flip out easy when riding with the tabs Rivco has on the bottom of each peg. They even have a machined safety notch to break away the peg if it's out in an accident, saving any damage to the engine.
American made. Fit and design are spot on. This is a fine product and just a bit more cost than the popular Chinese made clamp on Hwy pegs. Two Thumbs Up!
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
