71 years old; had to decide to either give up motorcycle riding, or appeal to the gods of technology if there was a product that could extend my riding years. A bunch out there including HD’s Freewheeler trike. I decided on the LegUp by Chopper Design Services, located in NE Orlando FL. I have not installed LegUp on my new 2018 Road Glide Special, so more discussion to come and more pictures to be added to my gallery LegUp here

I hadn’t ever seen this product. It certainly seems like a good option as a alternative to a three wheeler for those who’s only issue is holding the bike up when stopped. I’m sincerely hoping it works out for you and prolongs your ability to ride on two wheels.

My only issue thus far is under 6 mph. The legup will go up at 6 mph. My right leg is buttressed - held together - with 13 titanium screws and 2 titanium plates.

Since I am disabled Rider I had that unit installed. It didnt work out for me. Since I dont have the use of my legs, I had to rely on it to completely hold me up at stops. Anyhow, the unit/system could NOT hold up the entire weight of the bike and WILL COLLAPSE. It uses a pneumatic air actuator. It comes down quick but if you were leaning as you were coming to a stop, it will not right you up. It can not handle the weight. Its just an "assist"system if you're still able to put your foot down when you come up to a stop. A few times I fell over with the system deployed. 1 on the road (not good) and pulling into my garage. Also, it mounts to the passenger floorboard. And since it mounts there, from watching 'able-bodied' trying to walk the bike backwards/reversing. It was impossible. It could be done but a hindrance.
I ended up installing a tilting motorwork system and couldnt be happier.

If you still want to try the "Leg-UP" system, I'll sell you the one I pulled off my bike..cheap
