MCL does still sell the riding blades. The way they mount, the major portion of the purchase might very well survive a slide. The blade itself won't, but you can get the replacement parts for far less than the whole set - and get just the bit you need.

I tried getting the originals form just about anywhere else, but they're just not out there. MCL was my only choice - as much as I hate it.

I did get the mcl highway blades and I love them! Easy to mount and easy to use. They extend the time I can ride by 100%!

You must aware they are on at first and you will touch on occasion but I have never touched hard enough for them to be a issue and touching today is a rare event.

I live in the flat lands and regular ride to a 9,500 foot tight turned area.
Straight as a string and flat as a board for 80 miles then it's straight up a twisty windy road through the forest.
I carry the tools, it takes two, needed to remove them when roads that call for them to be removed. Change the cotter pin to a hitch pin and they can be removed quite easily and quickly in the gas station parking lot or on the side of the road with no fuss and very minimum muss.

It was trouble with my knees, they ached.
There was a period that I was not sure I was going to be able to keep the ST it bothered my knees so bad.
I found the lowering kit, long before MCL copied them, and they saved the day and my ability to ride the ST comfortably to the point I was putting in 1,000 miles days easily.
I even rallied, 1k in 24hrs is the entry level, fairly regularly for some time.


When not attached to the bike I carry them always.
They are on right now. It's been a while since I rode and I put them on before I started again.

Never leave home without them.

Paul, thanks for excellent info.
After many years of trouble free bent knees on the ST, I am in a desperate situation, can't bend knees enough to ride my ST due to knee replacement surgery.
MCL makes two types, adjustable and fixed . Which type are you using? Have also read stock goldwing pegs provide 1/2" lowering, anyone tried that ?
TIA

I have the first generation nob-adjustable, they are back on again.

I have not tried the Wing foot pegs.
I understand they are wider and for me that might cause some issue with shift/brake angles at the ankles.
I trend to ride with my feet closer to the heel than on the ball of the foot.
Toes down so to speak.
