BMW LT Passenger Floorboards & Rider Ground Reach
I need to get passenger floorboards because my wife really appreciates them on long trips. We had them on our Moto Guzzi and she loved them. Before ordering a pair of BMW passenger floorboards, I'd like to know if they cause the rider's legs to splay out a bit. It's an issue because I have a 29 inch inseam and I need as direct a reach to the ground as I can get. I noticed that even with the stock passenger pegs, when I drop my legs to the ground, they must naturally slip back a bit sometimes because I can feel the passenger pegs in the back of my calves. For those that have the BMW passenger floorboards, does it cause the rider to reposition the legs when stopping? I only get the balls of my feet down now and I'm okay with that, but I want to avoid having any less. I've had bikes where I could only get the end of my toe down, but that gets tiring 2-up riding, fully loaded with luggage and having to contend with long periods of stop n'go traffic, after a 600 plus mile day. I'd like to hear from those that have the BMW passenger floorboards. Thanks for the help.
