hey fellow bikers and what not . lemme start by giving some background I was born mid 80s, raced dirt bikes in the 90s, and got me a 2013 Vstar 650 custom recently. I personally love the bike, I ride to work work to ride kinda thing. I'm 5' 6" 150lbs, its awesome.
I have noticed that only the balls of my feet with my boots on are touching the pegs in normal cruising, I put my full foot on there for braking , getting under the shifter, and what not but I feel like my feet should have a better "plant" so I could relax my legs a bit while just cruising at normal highway speed . any suggestions would be researched and considered .
. I have no problem handling the bike in traffic , some fear in certain situations but I'm comfortable amongst the cars and trucks, and keep a good eye on what I might have to do. either way I'm glad to be on 2 wheels again and the commute on the bike is better then my truck every day of he week I'm sure most you feel the same :)
