So here are some photos of the final installation. I've seen some of these gloss powder coated, but these are matte finished. The first shows the T-Rex Highway Pegs installed, and also the one irritation I had with the installation.
My bike is the AE model, with the electronic clutch. You can see just to the left of the triangular plate is a part of the shift mechanism that should be covered by a cowling. T-Rex's materials say this is a "no cutting installation." I didn't have to cut the cowl to install, but I did have to remove it, and will have to remove part of its corner to get it back in place. Probably belt sander as my band saw is out of commission right now.
I tried the highway pegs farther forward, but it felt like the stirrups on an OB/GYN table. Here, I can get a little stretch, and if the bike should take a nap/slide, they are less likely to bend into anything really expensive. If I decide I don't use them enough, they'll get moved to the V-Strom.
Next photo shows the bag bars. I had my wife test-sit after installation. She did lose a little foot room, but her heels are well on the pegs.
Last shot shows both.
