I'm with Bill. I couldn't get any hwy pegs that suited me, or they were gonna touch down or weren't in the right place. Russell seat put me a bit higher and I never looked back. If my legs get cramped, I either stand up and pump to get the circulation going again or kick out a leg straight and pump a couple of times.

I don't have T-Rex but do have hwy pegs that are mounted to the engine cases from now defunct Motorcycle Larry. I'm 6'4" and I do find them quiet comfortable on ling rides. It's just another place to put your feet. Any movement, along with standing up, alleviates some leg cramp.

For rides of 1,000 miles or longer, sometimes my knees hurt like Iím getting continuously tased. Not a problem as often if I stand periodically, not a problem at all if Iím running lowering brackets. Regardless, I remove peg feelers. They do nothing but decrease available lean angle, to me.
This is helpful information, Bill. Much appreciated. Thank you.

[QUOTE=ritchinsen;1267563]Hi Tnjallen, do you have a set of highway pegs on your R-Gaza engine guard? This is something I was interested in getting to stretch the legs on those long rides. Are they easy to install?

I don't have the engine guards, yet. I bought the bag guards first to see the build quality. I'm happy with them and will get the engine guards soon.

I don't think I will get highway pegs.
