    Highway pegs and mounts are one of the most noticeable things on a bike since they stick way out there. And the inexpensive clamp types don't look so good.
    I have the kind in this ebay link. There are several different arms (long,short,angled) that fit them. I currently have the streamliner (Streetglide) style pegs on them.

    If you ever get a set of hard lowers, HD's angle mounts w/pegs work well. I started w/long angle, but didn't like the look/fit (seemed like deer antlers sticking out). Traded for short angle and they've been great. At 5'11" with 34" inseam, they're a little short, but I can lay my boot over the peg, if I want a good leg stretch.

    I'm on my second pair of Engine Guard Mount Footpegs through H-D. Had em on my old '10 SG. Part# 49144. They are $39.95 MSRP, but I got em for 25% off of that price, through the dealer. Wait for a sale, or purchase through many dealers that offer internet sales at 20% off or more...

    Yes, they are a bit flimsy, but they serve my purpose. I only use them sparingly, to relieve legs cramps if riding for a long time. For safety reasons, I only use these footpegs to give my legs a brief break. I don't want to get too comfortable, and then all of a sudden something happens... I'd rather have my feet on the floorboards... Good enuff for me.
