I just installed a set of Lindby highway bars on my 06 XL1200L and the toe of my boot, when on my forward controls easily touches the highway bar. It's a little awkward but it's something I probably could get used to, but if there is some tricky method of giving myself about another inch of clearance it would be greatly appreciated. There appears to be room to move the bar out or maybe installing an aftermarket set of forward controls that would raise my foot up a little. The problem is where the bar turns back and down toward the bike mounting bracket. Thanks for any suggestions.
