One thing I noticed on mine is that it not only utilizes the same engine mounting bolts as the one's required for my to bolt the CC bracket and the mounting of my tipover bars, but the square tubing frame drops downward and blocks a cross bracket my tipovers need.

I contacted Ryan and told him about that. He said he'd look into seeing about possibly making the next ones a bit different with a curved bend there.

He's recently moved to another state, and is just now getting set back up and going again.
So it's been pretty crazy for him as of late.

I'm looking forward to seeing his new passenger armrest setups.
He's supposed to have a working prototype finished soon, and said he'd let me know so I can test them out. The move's just slowed him down a bit...totally understandable.

This thread is a little old but instead of starting a new one I thought I'd re-use it. It's my first first post so sorry if I'm in the wrong place. To be straight forward I'm at a loss to get help via email so I'm using this Forum as it helped another user by posting in here.

I ordered from Advanced Sport Touring last month (June) but nothing has been received yet. I've sent 2 follow up emails and no reply. I'm concerned about my order and my money. I've heard other people also have problems: http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=14083.0

Ryan Niquette gave me an auto reply email when the order was placed, my money has been deducted off the credit card, but nothing to show for it. I hope Ryan is reading this and can help me out. I'm in Australia and things can take a few weeks, but not hearing an email reply from you concerns me.

Ryan, any comment?
Order #1670 placed 20 June 2014.

Thanks,
Brendan.

Nothing wrong with that.  In fact, it is preferable

Great product, I wish you luck in receiving it.  Ryan has been hit and miss lately and that is being nice so Cuda doesn't get me...lo.

lol,  I hope he gets back on track because at one time had great service and products.  Unfortunately I think a lot of bridges have been burnt.  Then again as the saying goes...America loves a comeback.

I too am an Australian awaiting an order to be delivered. It's a month since ordering and receiving the confirmation of order email and not a peep since.  This is in fact my second order from Ryan and the first one arrived within two weeks. Astounding!! So what's going on?  I hope he's O.K. after tangling with that deer,  lets hope for a quick resolution........

AST took my 300 dollars for pegs. Took two weeks to reach Ryan Niquette who gave me a story about being in a wreck. I felt bad and agreed to wait after he promised me a free gift and express shipping when they were ready. That time has come and gone and still no pegs and he has not returned my money despite the dozens of emails, phone calls, and Facebook messages I have left requesting him to do one or the other. I will start the process of legally getting my money back and reporting this company and its owner as fraudulent. Many people on COG are having the same problem. I don't expect perfection and Im willing to work with anyone but when a company will not answer an email after they have taken my money I have a serious problem with them.

Many are concerned that perhaps Ryan unfortunately may not have survived the crash. In any event, it is becoming clear that his business has not. Too bad, as he once was among the best.

I also was gonna buy these for mine, and actually e-mailed Ryan a few times last year,, my only concern was how much cornering clearance we were gonna lose. imo, to be stretched out that far and down, its gonna limit cornering, then winter came and it was off the radar....

So, can we get an update on Ryan or his buisness? Are they both surviving, I'm a little worried now as I had quite a good rapport with him via email.......

Just slap some highway pegs on the MC Enterprises Canyon Cage and good to go.  Protection and getting some wind on the legs when needed.

Those highway pegs do not work if you have the full Area P exhaust. They won't fit.

Oh, those are neat.  Kinda complex, but neat.  Not a SINGLE mention of those on our forums before.  Must be very new and flew under the radar.  He might get some bites from people seeing it now.

I have Ronnie's highway pegs, which are more elegant and less weight but more expensive, not adjustable and with less distance available.


Actually, I posted about them a few months ago in depth. Link below  ;D
