Highway pegs on motorcycles also contribute to safety problems.

I was at Deals Gap years ago on a hot run and my highway peg dug into the tarmac as I was leaned-over in a turn. It pole-vaulted me and caused a level-10 pucker factor. I got to the Crossroads of Time and removed the pegs; they're on The Tree of Shame now.

frank70th Ha. Great responses. I am somewhere in the middle here. I see the dangers off roading, and i drive an Automatic. No off roading (yet). Plus I am a big guy and once I took the door off I realized how much the door is holding my leg in! So i've been resting my foot on the side rail anyway! Just figured it'd be comfy. Like highway pegs on a harley!!

If the road is wide open with no cars near you, I don't see a problem with it.
Forgot about the clutch (duh) that limits the rest time especially city driving.

She thinks I'm an idiot for riding with my foot on the step. I keep telling her I'm just trying to cool off my junk.

rics1997 It is a safety issue to the driver and others but many still do this mod and get very mad if you bring up the safety issues related to it.

Motorcycle foot rest

Has anyone ever heard of or fabricated a motorcycle style foot rest for use with the doors off. Was thinking it could be mounted to the lower door hinge. Might not be terribly legal bit I am thinking it would be cool.
