Floorboard frustration

So I sprung for some new driver and passenger streamliner floorboards, had the stock ultra "D" shape prior. Although the streamliner swept wing boards look fantastic, I'm not sure I like them and my wife really doesn't like them. The swept wing style is narrow and I keep thinking I'll just get used to them but...

Would the extensions that move the boards out away from the bike make a difference, anyone got those? You know that feeling when you just spent some money and then maybe realize what you had was more than sufficient?

Cool Yes!

Yes, the floorboard extensions would make a noticible difference.

I did the Kuryakn floorboard extensions. Moves them out and forward 1 inch. I posted pictures to the forum when I added them. Do a quick search. I am 6'2" with a 32" inseam and I couldn't get comfortable. Leaving this week on a 2,500 mile trip, then doing Hutmo's Gypsy Tour and SW III. Better be comfortable for 5,000 miles on that one!

When I had my Road King Custom with swept wing boards, neither me or my wife liked them, as they were too narrow. Then I added SOOS 3/4" board extenders and it made a considerable difference.

I added the Harley goodies which moved out 1". I'm 6'2 and this made a huge difference for me. If I was to move forward an inch, I would need to get longer shift and brake pedals

I rode my wife's bike, with streamliner boards. Ugh. My size 12s couldn't find a comfortable spot, so I can understand your frustration. I do, however, have the HarleyGoodies floorboard extenders on my bike, with D-boards. They made a world of difference.

+1 on the extensions. They make it way more comfortable.
