Question for trike owners

OK trike owners, specifically those who have the extended Plexiglas floor boards that come up to the front of the bike.

If you have that floor board, Why do you still need the foot peg?

 

I have pondered this for a long time, but it would seem that with the foot peg on there, you could not use the floor boards to put your feet on.

 

Here a pic of what Om talking about.

For me, the aqua shields are too low for long term comfort, but you can flip the pegs up out of the way and rest your feet on them to get a different position for a little while.

For a taller rider would the aqua boards be a better fit with hi way pegs than the foot pegs and hi way pegs?

    Lehman trikes was one of the first that offered floorboards that you could actually stand on also they came with an emergency brake. To answer your question your factory foot pegs are the most solid of all and are meant to carry a heavy load getting on/ off. Now my running boards.... "I originally didn't want running boards because all you could do is look at and clean them", then as mentioned I got my Lehman. Now I have several ways I can place my feet for a variety of butt angle changes. Not only that, during cool periods of time I slide the vent lever open on the left fairing tuck my feet into the front pocket and I have heat from the radiators blowing on my shoes and up my pant legs. Get caught  in a downpour and you'll love them even more!  Gotta Love Them boards!!

Wife and I have been talking about the aqua boards. Didn’t get them when we triked our bike but wished now we did. After asking questions from others found that they can be installed after the kit is on. Considering getting them and installing them our selves

I have a Hannigan  GenII kit on mine.  As with most that I have seen from other trike makers, it would appear that the boards can be added after.  I had to take mine off and re align them and it was pretty easy to do.  Mine are load bearing, not sure if that would have to be specified when ordering or not but worth mentioning.

On my roadsmith, 2016 model, kit it states that they are load bearing. Not sure but I think anymore they all are
