Solutions for short passenger legs

OK, don't laugh (too hard). Here is the background: wife loves to go riding with me on the 2002 LT. However, her legs are short and has difficulty reaching the pillion foot pads. What have others done in this situation to increase the height of the pillion pegs? One friend suggested putting peddle blocks on like when the kids were on a tricycle. Another suggested getting another passenger with longer legs. (wife was definitely not in favor of that one. LOL!). Suggestions are welcome. If someone has good ideas, maybe Kirk can make a supplement to his "honey, your back is too fat video".

Ride On!

I hadn't seen them. The Ilium Works adjustable riser looks like it will fit the bill. Many thanks!

BMW passenger floor boards are adjustable and work great too. The Director told me to have them put on before I brought the bike home when new. I am glad I did because the granddaughter can reach them in the highest position.

I have the BMW adjustable pax boards. Wife loves them, and the quickly adjust so I can take my 12 y.o. daughter for a ride with full foot contact on the boards.

Not cheap, but work well and look good.

Re: Solutions for short passenger legs

Shop around. About a year ago on this very forum I got a set of BMW floorboards for $160. They're the powder coated ones and not chrome but for that price I wasn't go complain. My wife loves them and she's inseam challenged too.
