I purchased a 2008 wing from the west coast last week and road it back to Ohio. 30 to 50 MPH crosswinds in the Mohave desert and Arizona and New Mexico. Made the trip in 4-1/2 days. I don't think I could have made the trip in that time on any other bike. I had never ridden a wing before that trip. Great Bike! My question, Not used to the cramped foot position from peg to the shifter. Has anyone had experience with Kuryakyn's heel tow shifter while using the existing peg?
