There is a chap over @ Vic's site that has homemade forward controls & an electric shifter. Very cool set-up.:action::action::action::action::action::action:

Not for me. My wifes Shadow Aero has forward controls. I don't like the feel. A buddy at work has a sportster he thinks they are great. Just what you are used to I guess.

maybe if he put bigger pictures, I cant tell what they do or where they go...
Same thing I thought when I looked at the site. If the guy wants to sell these then he needs to put up some close ups of the product. Can't see it, I won't buy it.

The only real problem I see with the forward control system shown is that it appears the case guards must be removed in order to install them.

I like the concept, just not the application.

I don't think so Fysty.




They look pretty gone to me.

Edit: Wait a second, I didn't notice the pix on yours as I was looking at the ones over at Jim's, and we posted at about the same time.

My bad.

Had them on a Honda Magna.. They drag real easy.. When they hit, they hit hard.. No folding.. I don't think they're very practical...

Zryder who's a sometimes member here but used to hang out on Vic's site and the Naked Goldwing site made up a set of forward controls if I remember correctly. I don't know if he liked them in the end of not. I don't think I'd like them for two reasons. I suspect a day's long ride with them would make me feel like a wishbone that's been split. It would mean a real spraddled riding postion.Another thing is it would mean a lot more effort lifting your legs back up to the controls in stop and go traffic. The last objection I'd have would be rough roads. With forward controls you can't lift you butt off the seat for upcoming bumps, it's going to be a lot more jarring.

I'll stay stock, thanks for the info.
Calflash, stock is just as nice as radically custom. Just different. Also thanks for coming back from VN and for serving. and all the others on this forum who served. It is too bad that there were not more of people like me in the 60's/70's, that helped DDers across the line, then maybe there would have been no war in VN & consequensly hatered of those who served. By the way, I feel as Exavid about having to ride any distance with FC's.:action::action::action::action::action::cooldevil::cooldevil::cooldevil::cooldevil::cooldevil::cooldevil::cooldevil:
