Post passenger footpegs? Reply with quote
Today I took my son for a ride around the neighborhood.
He was on the passenger part of the long seat.
He asked where he was supoosed to put his feet?
There dont appear to be any passenger footpegs.
Are these just missing or where is he supposed to put his feet?
Comments from friends here on this site are appreciated.
Regards,
Cliff

My nine year old son puts his feet on the cowl protectors. They make passenger foot pegs for scooters but I haven't seen any that would work for a kid.

...Or maybe he's putting his feet on the top of the cowls, it's been a few months. There is a reason I prefer the Bajaj for two up riding but old age is preventing me from remembering what it is.

Don't know how old or tall your son is, a passenger is supposed to have legs long enough to put them on the floorboards behind yours. Crashbars or the tops of the cowls are commonly used by shorter passengers, but are not the intended position.

@ Grover - Which is why my son doesn't gets to ride on our scooters as much as he'd like to, I'm not going to completely ban him from riding though.

I'd tool around the block with my son on the back since he was about 4yo, but now he rides his own, and won't touch anything but a manual, either.

Cliff here - who posted the origional query: thanks guys for the discussion which was useful. It sounds like there are no official passenger footpegs - my son is 15 years old and five six and 125 lbs. he said it is a bit of a stretch to put his feet on the floorboard behind mine.
my concern is that maryland law (as far as i know) considers anything over 50cc as a "motorcycle" and passengers can only be taken along if they have footpegs.

the harley pegs idea seems to be a good one and i am going to look further into that

cheers

You can install the crash bars and then get some clamp on foot pegs. They could be adjusted for the smaller folk.

Columbia Scooters (Portland store) has foot pegs listed on their website under Bajaj accessories.
