RMH-Tech Passenger Floorboards......Opinion?

So, the GF loves the seat on the LT. The foot position....not so much. Saw the pass boards being offered by RMH, and, at almost 1/3 the cost of thr Illium units, I was impressed. I mean, the GF is cuddly and all, and she smells good, but $175, shipped, is something to consider.....or is it? Anyone have any experience with these boards?

Can't speak for the aftermarket footboard units, but my passenger loves her BMW ones. She says the foot boards really save tired and sore feet on long trips. Well worth having.

I'm thinking of going with those for the wife. She doesn't like the pegs.

I have the Darius boards on the back of the '99 for the wife. She almost wouldn't ride with me without getting something better than pegs for her feet. She still loves to ride the GoldWing and she says it's more comfortable for her than the LT.

I have a set on my 2000 LT, home made from Passenger pads from JC Whittney & a ste of risers from Bobs BMW.

Cost back in 2000 was less the $200.

Will get a picture up tomorrow. to show the set up.
