    I still think you should break down and get a "big girl" bike.
    :)
    No big girl bikes for me rain....I'm true to the sportster, and it may run against the grain, but i'm gonna stay true.......g

    okay, I got a little pressure about not having any pics of myself on here. So I broke down and snapped one....
    It shows how far out those highway pegs needed to be for my long legs to fit on a sporty.. I didnt smile because my wife was telling me how fat I look on my poor little sporty...LOL !

    and a few more....



    The bar turned out well, and fits me like a glove...
    I did end up adding some beef to the bottom frame mount to support my legs being forced into the bar... ( the factory bracket is garbage )
    also, I added 2 support brackets back to the frame, to relieve the load on the two front screws..

    Those bike pegs are hot huh ??

    total cost of the job.....about 15 bucks.....
