I picked up the Leg-up and Exhaust Packages at the UPS Terminal at 8 AM got home about 9 PM. At about 9:30 AM I started the the installation, (the old exhaust was already removed) by 12 noon the same day everythings was working. I had no help and without the full use of my Legs it was a fairly easy installation. So don't get intimidated by the instructions or a dealler who charges $400.00 plus for the installation.
Leg-up is a very well designed and manufactured aid for those in need. I thank you for all the Veterans who enjoy riding Motorcycles for making this Landingear a reality. I think it takes more time to learn the use of the system then the installation.
Thank you Pete for the help.

My LegUp was installed by Chandler Custom Choppers, they did a quality job on my '02 Softail Deuce.. Your ingenious design is great. The quality and workmanship is superb. You can see my fold up crutches on the back seat. I just came back from a 3 hour cruise, and my back is NOT in pain at all, usually is. I am so glad I found your product on-line.
Not a testimonial, but a great note from some nice folks!
Got the computer Saturday afternoon and installed that night. Everything works great. Had to set the up and down. Will send old computer on Monday. You should come up and ride in October. It's our yearly fall colors leaf run. Attached is a few pics from last week in Maggie Valley NC.

Just want to send you this photo and let you know that the LegUp™ system is working for me. Thank you for recommending Jeff at Ace Motors. They are very professional and did a great job. As we spoke I will promote your LegUp™ and recommend you and Jeff. I hope to see Jeff at Americade next week, I will call him to catch up with him.

Dave Raines, came to see us a few months ago. He checked out the LegUp™ system. We gave him a quick Install tutorial, and he left with a new system. I got an email from him the other day. He published THIS for his local HOG Chapter. It is kind words and folks like Dave that make the long hours worth it!
Wayne Kiven from Australia sent us these picture of our system on his Softail. Wayne needed quite a bit of modifications to his bike as his is an above-the-knee amputee on his right side. Thanks for the pictures Wayne, and I am glad you are back to riding!
Thanks for the 'LegUp™'. My wife and I rode down to Homestead for the races and did some free advertising for you! With the trailer, LegUp™ has been a blessing!
Watch Jim Practice!
Jim Newcomb sent us some pictures and video of him using the LegUp™ Plus System. Jim lost his right leg above the knee, so the Plus! was the logical choice since putting his right leg down is not an option for him.
We couldn't use all his pictures, but here you can see him standing next to his turbo-charged Road King, and his video can be see by clicking on the image to the right!
Keep on Riding Jim, and thanks for the pics!
Hi Pete, At last some good weather to try out the landing gear. What do I think of it? The best thing since sliced bread! Bloody Marvelous!
We wanted to share this picture and story with you folks. Mr. Jim Kersting, seen here, owns Kersting H-D, in Winamac, Indiana. When he called us some time ago, he asked about becoming a dealer and installing our system on a bike that he keeps in front of his musuem across the parking lot from his dealership.
I heard from Jim yesterday, just to tell me how he took a bolt-on trike kit off his '03 Road Glide, and how much he liked the LandinGear setup. We appreciate calls like this Jim, THANKS!
Since installing your LegUp™ on my 2008 Ultra, I have the confidence to put more miles under me than I have in the last 5 years. Riding since 1966, I never intend to stop.
With the LegUp™, I felt I was able to ride to Sturgis all the way from North Carolina. I just got back and everything was perfect. Maneuvering through the crowed Sturgis streets went like a breeze, including backing into and out of tight parking spaces. The only disadvantage was all the time I had to spend talking to folks about those "funny little wheels" on my bike. When I told them they were my "old man with weak knees helpers" It lead to demonstration after demonstration. I only wish I took some of your literature with me... next year for sure.
Bottom line, I visited almost averything possible in the Sturgis areas, and here are some photos of my trip.
PS: You might notice that the LegUp™ wheels are in the up position in the photos. Once I use them to stop and get my balance, I put the kickstand down and then raise LegUp™. When I am going to leave, I put them down first, then put the kickstand up.. and then take off!!
Just a line to let you know, went on a Harley Rally to Holland last weekend had a great time, met lots of nice people. My leg up system performed just great had no problems at all! Had a few people intertested in wanting to know how its works, so gave a couple of demonstrations, you never know you could get some more interest.

Everything you told me about the Landing Gear system is true. You will remember that I was not an easy sell, but now I am a proud owner, I love it. It gives me the extra help I need with my injured right ankle and, when my wife rides with me, I have the extra confidence that I will not drop the bike with my most precious cargo aboard. Thanks for being patient with all of my questions, you ‘da man.

I called on a Saturday, showed up on Tuesday and Pete and the guys fixed my small problems without an appointment!
LegUp™ LandIngear is the way to go !
I just wanted to let you know the LanginGear really really helped me this summer. While riding in the mountains here in Arizona I became oxygen deprived. I have COPD. I didn't black out but became very disoriented. The bike gradually came in contract with the curb. I thought I was on the other side of the lane. When the landingear made contact with the curb I realized something was wrong. and started braking. the gear helped to hold the bike until a full stop when I put my feet down.
I'm sure if the bike tires came in contact with the curb I would have gone over. Even after I was stopped and my wife was asking what was wrong I didn't know. We were resting on the landingear against the curb. It worked great even for something it probably wasn't designed to do.

I really like my new LandinGear. It gives me a lot of confidence when I want to stop in traffic. I pull a 250 LB. camper behind my bike, and it really makes me feel more secure. I'm going on 78 years old and I don`t want to quit riding yet !! Thanks Pete !
P.S. I installed the system my self and it fit perfectly!

I am 100% disabled from a leg condition. I find
the LegUp™ System to be an extraordinary asset to my riding ability.
The stabilization reduces all the pressure off my bad leg and enables me
to continue to ride with my friends!

I came to Pete G's for help last July.
I have an 08 ElectraGlide, and with my bad knee,
I dropped it at stop lights and my friends had to
help me pick up the bike! We searched for an answer and could
find none. I challenged Pete by saying '..you can build anything!'
He did! Now I never drop the bike and me and my friends
are all happy!
