quick home made floor boards

On trips with a lot of miles, pegs just suck. My leg tends to cramp up on my brake side, as I can rest my left left on my primary and just aches. So why spend several hundred bucks on a new set up when you can spend about 20 bucks at Lowes and make some simple floorboards. I used angle iron, perforated steel and grade 8 bolts to make these suckers. In a perfect world I would have had a tig welder to make everything super smooth but I just have my Hobart 140 mig set up with no gas, so it had to do. Works for me and will allow me to not have leg cramps on 500 to 800 mile days from now on.
