I'd like to see a picture of your bike with the mini boards. Just cause they don't work for me doesn't mean I didn't like the way they look. I wanted boards for a long time before I decided they just aren't for me.
Ok, here they are. I installed them several days ago. I have about two hundred miles on them now. I like them so far. Actually I feel a little more connected to the bike with them. I have ridden with fool boards and heel toe shifting and I didn't like that because I wasn't used to it. The seems like the best of both worlds. My buddy did the instal. He really like to wrench. He has three and one half MC in his basement being worked on right now. I handed him the cotter pins. It took a total of about ten minutes. I like the look. It took a little getting used to because it is different but I am sold so far.
