Passenger peg covers

Hey guys, I've taken the passenger seat off my bike and don't have any plans on taking a passenger in the future... Yes i know that may sound selfish, but i love just going for a ride on my own or riding with my mates without a passenger. So I'm thinking of taking off the passenger pegs and want to replace these with a cover of some sort such as the ones made for the speedmaster (image). Anyone know where I could get these for the Storm? Or other options would be greatly appreciated.

I've done as you and have Adolfo set up. I replaced the pegs with the Triumph medallion. If you zoom in on the attached pic you can see how they look. Passenger peg covers-imageuploadedbymotorcycle1355350423.340241.jpg

Thanks Deanno, what you have done looks great. Did the medallions fit straight in??

I removed the peg only, not the bracket. The medallion screw goes where the peg screw came from. I used my own stainless steel washer and nut to secure it.

Just a thought, but i don't ride 2 up either but would not want to lose the pegs. Why? During long freeway rides when your body starts getting sore/tired you put your feet on the rear pegs and it shifts your entire body's position and it's a great relief. It may not look cool, but if i wanted to look cool to others i'd have bough one of those ugly cruisers, you know the ones.

Dax, that would be a good idea if my old limbs would stretch that far :-)

Deanno. Might have to get two more medallions and copy that. What is the screw size? They come with a dull screw don't they.

I used the screw that came with the medallion and did a little trial and error to determine the nut size.

Try it a few times. I think you'll find what i did, that being that it feels like they are too far when you stretch your leg to get your feet on them. But once you do and relax your legs it's great. I felt the same as you till i gave it a chance. Now i use it a lot on long high speed cruises. The forward lean into the wind also really takes a lot of stress off your muscles. My limbs are not exactly spring chicken legs at almost 60 either.
