    I thought I ought to post my idea for easier entry to higher vehicles that is cheap, easy and can't be torn off like hard mounted ones. I've been using the single bolt mount style since spring '04 and the other one for 3 months. They make life so much easier on my wife and that makes my life much more pleasant.


    Pardon the junky green Blazer, I went out in the dark and took the photos and didn't see the crap.

    JaysBeast uses actual stirrups from a saddle for his burb so his wife and kids can get it. Kinda redneck but pretty cool idea. I like it, but then again my neck is a little red.

    :haha: :haha: :haha: Kool! A fellow I used to ride with had a small saddle on his old Panhead. Looked very Redneck. But my arse was always sore before his! I have horse saddle bags on my Shovelhead that have been on it since day one in 1983! Black bags on black bike though.

    That is an excellent idea. A guy on here actually has real honest to goodness stirrups like off a saddle. Says they work pretty well too.

    Harley beat me to it. Yea JaysBeast that's the ticket. I'll go back to my hole now.

    this is a good idea. a "cheap trick" in 4 wheeler one time had a similar set up, but the guy used a welder to weld 5 or 6 links together for the "step" part. Either way would work, your way would prolly be beefier. I like it. Personally, to get in my rig I step inside the rear wheel, then on top the tire... then swing a leg over the bedside and stand up in the bed... then just walk to the front and plop down. :D
