If we kinda knew what those other products were, we might be able to get an idea from the membership on how viable they might be...  I mean, we don't want to know any corporate secrets but it would help to know something...or not.

I think he was on here back when he was just starting. I don't remember what his handle was.

Those touring pegs look great. I have been looking at these for a while now. Was about to take the plunge when I read the first post. So I am eagerly waiting the write up. If they work as well as I think they will, How about a group buy!!

  I'm wondering if they are compatible with Canyon cages.

  If so that would be a great combination--protection for the bike and pegs that are low enough ( and adjustable ) for us longer legged guys.

  I might be interested in a group buy also if this would work.

  OR--maybe the builder of these could make footpegs that would fit the Canyon cages that would put your feet more down and forward like his pegs do.

Just sent him a email telling of the buzz that is going on over here to see if he would want to chime in (since hes already a member) and share some of his drawing board ideas.

I dunno...looks like the frame for these pegs mount to the same engine mount bolts as do the Canyon Cages...but maybe I'm wrong.

Anyhow, I bought risers from AST. Good product. His RBT lights look attractive at $100. If I was still looking for added rear lights, I might give them a try.

Gotta admire anyone trying to make a go of it, owning their own company. I was a CPA for 30 years...helped many a small business trying to get started...saw most of them fail. It's hard.

Here's a good luck wish for AST. :thumbs: :thumbs:

Just unboxed them the other day, and took some pics with my phone because my good camera took a crap. I'm going to borrow a  camera and try to get some better pics.  Due to the shitty weather around here its going to be a while before i get a chance to mount them so, stay tuned. I store my bike in a 10x20 shed in the back yard and currently there is or was a 3ft drift of snow across my back yard, i think half of it melted this weekend but still going to be a bit.

Hey all,
I bought a set of these from Ryan last summer for my '11.

These rock! Wow... What a difference...

Ryan's got a good product here, and great CS to boot.

I don't have canyon cages, so you may have a situation where both need to share the same mounting bolts... Not sure.

Been working a ton of OT at work since the middle of December so i havent had any extra time but.....Finally got them installed today, not really ready to give complete review yet but there are a few things i can note at this time. First of all the product is well made and thought out. The written installation instructions were detailed and the video on youtube is a must watch for the install because the picture don't help a whole lot. The only problem with the product that i encountered was there were supposed to be 2 lock nuts and i only got one lock nut and one standard(no problem i found one in my collection) and they give you a small vile of blue thread locker and is nowhere near enough(again no problem i had some). And the biggest suprise was if you want to use the forward most mounted position you have to sand, grind or file down just a bit of the lower faring on the left side so it wont rub. I decided to do this because of my long legs i used a dremel with a sanding drum and made short work of it and unless you got down on your knees and look underneath you would never know.

Now for us 2008-2009 guys there are some issues. First is with the install and removing the engine bolt for the top side of the bracket, he says in the instructions and video that we will need a swivel for the socket and yes this does work but if you have ever used one of these at a extreem angle you will know they dont work all that well under extreem torque, and it takes some doing to get it broke free with out scuffing up the painted edges of the fairing. And issue number 2 for us 08-09ers is the heat deflector on the engine opening, while in the seated position with you feet on these pegs that part digs into the side of your leg. You can still angle you feet out ward to reduce this effect but you are only utilizing the outer 50% of the peg. I dont think this would be as big of a issue on the 2010 and up de to the different faring.

Ill post more later with a couple other pics but it wont be real soon. Ill wait till i hve some saddle time with these and see how it goes.
