Black Dog Cycle Works Adventure Footpegs | Thrashed

Ridden and Rated

Finally floorboards for adventure bikes! Not really but that was my first thought after installing the BDCW Adventure footpegs on our BMW F800GS test bike. The stock pegs on the BMW F800GS measure 1 5⁄8 inches by 3 inches (41mm/77mm). Respectable for a stock set of pegs but if you stand for even a modest period of time riding in light-soled crossover boots like the Sidi Adventures, you will find your feet getting fatigued very quickly. In the spirit of all products produced by Black Dog Cycle Works (which seems to go by the credo, “ Anything worth building is worth overbuilding”) these footpegs are no exception. The “Made in the U.S.A.” BDCW Adventure footpegs are milled from a single stock of aluminum with the cleated area measuring at an impressive 2 3/8 inches by 4 1⁄2 inches (61mm/114mm). These things are HUGE, but wow, do they work awesome. The edges are cleated with a medieval castle pattern that gives great grip in the mud, and after 2 months of use they have not left any excessive wear marks on the soles of my boots. And for those that like multifunctional equipment, each footpeg even has a bottle opener milled into the bottom. How’s that for bragging rights around the campfire?! No question, these babies are two thumbs up!! –BT
