    not really, the way the rear crashbar lays your leg would hit the crashbar before you could slide your foot back that far. I hve them on my rd king and would be lost without them.

    Easiest thing before you spend a bunch of money is to drag you and your "passenger" into a dealership that has a bike set up like you're thinking of doing. Have her sit on the back and then you'll know for sure. Remember the passenger floorboards can be adjusted up and down in the preset holes and if that's not enough adjustability, you can get floorboard brackets from HD and Kuryakyn that are almost infinitely adjustable.
