    Hi everyone,
    I am a mature rider my most recent bikes have been a Triumph Tiger 800 and a Ducati Multistrada 950.
    I quite fancy a Crossrunner as my next one, please bear with me while I ask numerous questions.

    Thanks for the warm welcome.
    Multistrada 950 what can I say, I was seduced by her Italian good looks, but unfortunately my knackered old knees and hip couldn't get on with the riding position.
    I managed to only loose £50 when I sold, so a cheap Italian fling  :138:
    So one of the mods I would need to do to the Crossrunner would be to lower the footrests, has anyone dropped them by 2"?

    Thanks for the link, I have read that.
    My idea to lower the pegs is to use a plate on the frame and lower the whole footrest assembly if that is possible.

    I bought a pair of the jaws motorcycle product on the off chance they'd fit my mk1. They did - perfectly. The nice thing is that they don't look like an addition. I looked at a number of universal fit parts on the bay and they really look cobbled together.
