    Try riding with the ball of your feet on the peg like you do on a sports bike. Thats how i ride it stops my toes being crushed by the gear lever on left hand bends

    Hope if your foot is recovered has no issues that you don't induce a right wrist problem with all the testing  :745:
    Excellent point.  I guess in order to save my wrist I will just have to take a long ride on the Trophy to justify use of the cruise.

    I started having leg pain a few years ago on longer rides. I found that just standing up on the pegs, and doing some squats/knee bends every 20-25 miles helped enormously, got the circulation flowing. I didnt have any troubles doing this on the Trophy at 55 mph. 10-15 squats and I was ready for more miles.

    Thanks for the tip and I am sure that if I develop a pain in my leg it will be very helpful.  At the moment my pain is strictly in the foot.  Not at all in the leg.  Standing up on the foot only increased the pain in the foot.
