Tall guys lets talk brake levers and floorboards.

Hey guys I'm 6'4" 285. I'm looking for who makes the longest lowest rear brake lever in a black finish to fit a 2018 road glide special.
Also looking for a floorboard relocation kit to move them forward. I have seen some that also lower them but that worries me a little in the curvy roads we like to ride here in NC.

Any of you got some pics of your setups?

Softbrake for rear brake lever. I went with tall boy brackets to lower, move forward the floorboards. Iíve used the Kuryakyn spacers to move the floorboards out and forward but still wasnít comfortable as my heel still felt high.

The tall boy brackets made the bike so much more comfortable, I havenít scraped them yet but Iím not super aggressive in corners either.

Hey Bobby Iím also 6í-4Ē & hereís my setup, you can't go much further without moving or removing the crash bar:
Tall boys brackets, KURYAKYN brackets, HARLEY extended floorboards, WALTERS WORKSHOP extended shifter arm (highly recommended) matches stock very well , also added PINGEL shifter peg extension (highly recommended because floorboards are now moved out) and SOFTBRAKE+2 extended brake pedal. Once you have the right setup youíll be very happy. The one thing I wish Harley had that Victory did on their touring bikes was add adjustable back or forward foot controls. Unfortunately bikes are not one size fits all from the factory, some have to lower and have reduced reach setups, but itís a great platform & all the parts are available to get it dialed in right just for for your liking. Good luck

Well I ordered a +3 soft brake extended reach rear brake lever today and the matching extended shift levers.
I will post some before and after pics when I get them in.

+1 on the Walters Workshop and Softbrake items. Have them on my ride as well. The tall boys brackets didn't work for my custom floorboards.

IMHO these are the best floorboard relocation brackets on the market. Pricey but worth it.

I have the tallboy brackets 3/4 spacers and softbrake pedal. Itís a good setup. I also have the Harley Hammock it raises you at least an inch maybe inch and a half. All this combined works great with a 35Ē inseam.
