Depends one's style of riding I suppose. Here in Florida, not an issue. With the speed our group recently rode on the curvy TN and NC roads to include Tail of the Dragon, don't think I'd scrape all that much if at all. For someone who really likes to ride hard it could be an issue, but the boards only sit 1.25 inches farther outboard with the spacers. I'm more into comfortable cruising so pretty much a non-issue here. A good skiing analogy is whether you are a Black Diamond or a Blue kind of rider :laugh:Now because the floorboards sit farther apart do they scrap a lot in turns?
