goldwing footpeg weigh limits

Hi,
Do any of you get on your Goldwing via the footpeg. I.E. like a stirrup? Wondering what the weight capacity is on a 2019 model?
Thanks,
Bob

Yes, I get on my 2005 that way all the time with or without the sidestand down. Oh! but when it is not down, of course I have it on the center stand.

On Honda OEM parts diagrams for the 2019, Honda does not refer to it as a foot peg or foot rest. Honda calls it a "step" that might give a hint for it's intended use. I have used the one on my '03 as a step and it now has 115k on it and I weigh 240lbs, no failure as of yet.


Edit: Back in the day, everyone stood with all their weight on left peg of any given motorcycle to kick start it.

Some of the plates the foot peg mounts to have been known to break, luck of the draw I suppose, good excuse to buy the chrome steel units.

Welcome to the forum. People stand on the pegs all the time, riding or getting on/off the bike.

I've never known a passenger that did not use the rear peg or board as a step. Should be no different for a rider.

grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!

Been using drivers pegs and passengers boards for years, even when I weighed 350lbs. Never a failure. Always step on the passenger's board with my left foot and lift my right foot over the seat with our trike. Also when my butt needs a break riding down the road, I stand up on the driver's pegs to get some relief and air to the butt.

Pegs, Steps, Stirrups, Foot Rests, It doesn't matter what we call them. But like it was said before, depending on how the sidestand is made for certain bikes, the extra weight can bend their brackets or stems to where they lean the bike over at more of an angle and or cause the sidestand to wobble like it is loose as you move it up or down.

Is riding side-saddle cheating?
