Wife got me this t-shirt. She thought it pretty well covered everthing.

It's a double statement, fair play for continuing a healthy lifestyle.👍

I do, but they are very functional pieces of jewelry. I think they look good, but look like they mean business, and it's a case of (If you know, you know.) @Evill_Ed

I measured the locations and heights of the original bars and foot pegs to see the differences between stock and the woodcraft parts. I have them written down in my shop. I'll gather them up and post them.

Any chance you found the measurements? @Evill_Ed

I forgot to look for them. I’ll check and see if I can find my notes.

As you have seen I installed the woodie's, @Evill_Ed, the reason I asked for your measurements is that I don't have a  front wheel chock and the measurements I took from ground to top of peg were different on both sides. Left side 397mm, right side 383mm. Difference of 14mm= slightly over 1/2 inch, all this done while the bike was on a rear stand, so the accuracy is questionable. 

We had shitty weather yesterday so I decided to get something done, as the cold is approaching sooner than expected, and today was going to be good enough to ride. I had other crap to do first so I didn't get to these until about 4 in afternoon. I put them together, dry run. Then wet assembled with loctite on the shifter side only. Did the brake side this morning, and went for a 2HR ride in my favorite twisties.

I felt a difference right away, but, it became more apparent that my foot/leg/body position had changed the attitude of the bike tippin-in significantly, (AP Dog bone Not installed) in a good way. I got held up by about 20 cars just before entering Hobbs state park (really fun part) so I pulled over and let them gap out about 5 mins, decided I was going to change the rebound from 8 clicks out from all the way in to 4. I wasn't hauling at all as the tree coverage stopped the sun drying up 3 days of rain, wet patches all over, I was doing recon for the return trip analysing the road conditions and making mental notes. It wasn't 1 bit uncomfortable in the higher position I put them ,as a test run I'm happy.

 To make a point about body position, I had to search for the dash to check my speed as I'm so much more over the front. A few adjustments here and there and I'll be good.
