Hi All,

So you may have seen previously I was buying some stuff from Indian in Sturgis during black Friday sale.

So I got the attached floorboard that has a retractable (foldable) highway peg.  Impressed is an understatement.

I had expected to lose some lean angle due to the width of the new board, but IMT have outdone themselves by creating a sunken area underneath the board for the mounts to offset this extra width, meaning I now have the peg without loss of lean angles.

Check the pics out, no review will do it justice, oh and by the way the rubber top, is just the stock indian floorboard cover transferred onto the new board.

Hey Face,

Great review. Thank you!

Can you clarify something for me? In your first photo, the OEM floorboard and IMT floorboards appear to be about the same thickness... however, I noticed that IMT floorboards come with mounting points that are slightly shorter... meaning, even though floorboards might be similar thickness, IMT floorboards appears to sit lower to the ground, when mounted. Is this the case OR an optical illusion? The difference only appears to be < about 1cm.

Optical illusion. variation is less than 1-2mm at best

Now I want those boards myself.  What do they cost normally?  I know you got a deal.

I wonder if I could get them without the white Sturgis Indian logo on them.

Also, can you flick the highway pegs while riding with your feet?

Sturgis Indian sell them for $499US plus postage, rubber floorboard inserts extra. But stock fit so I just swapped mine oner. my deal was extra items half price up to same value....I'm doing a 1000kn round trip between now and Monday, so let me test them out in open road before you commit

If they don't flick out while riding it looks like it would be relatively simple to add a low projection that you could push out with side of your boot sole

Yes designed to push out while riding and there is a small rivet type lip on underside.

More to come once I get back on Monday

Ok so 700kms in to quick weekend trip, in the wet they are difficult to open as my boot slips on it to much but in the dry really easy to open as you ride along once you get used to the action.

I think one way to overcome the wet weather issue would be to replace the small silver almost rivet like piece that assists with opening to a small peg or bolt, but this issue could just be my boots....

Does the highway pegs feel too low by any chance. I always ride with my heels placed near the front edge of floorboards but I'm just wondering what it might be like to ride with my feet placed lower... as in, next to floorboards.

Yep they are at least 1.5-2cm lower doesn't sound like much but when I took my feet off them after two hours I felt all scrunched up

Do they fold up if you hit an object while cornering. Looking at the pictures it looks like a rigid set up.  I had a set for ex-Road King and they tuck away like displayed but they also folded up rather than digging in.  Cornering could be an issue if you're like the twists were the blade could dig in.  Even if it folds back into the floorboard you don't want your foot caught in between the board and the peg.

It will snap off, and you can order more, you can also retrifit to existign boards, BUT the overall board just like the indian board will fold back towards the bike, and if it isnt when you rub them, losen the nut a 1/4 turn and they will, stock or these...

bit of an update, so I have had these hit as I come into town going through a roundabout, they just folded back up under the floorboard and I kicked back out once clear of town.  I think you would have to hit really hard to damage them as I couldnt even see a real scratch despite hitting them hard. 

When I get into twisty areas I just tuck them up and then flick them back out when done, its easy enough to do even at 100km+

I also find now long distance hauls (over 500km in one day) are now a lot more relaxed and my old injuries are not aching at end of day

I wish I found these before I put the monstrosity of highway pegs on my RM. Much more refined that the Indian pegs.
