I like the discussion, good points all around.
I do like the pegs the most, I really do ! I have not put 4 or 500 miles on them yet just mostly 100-150 jumps.
In eagerness I jumped on the J-Pegs before I even had the bike!. I may need XL-J-Pegs.
What I find is the tip over wings are in my way on the j-pegs unless I am at the very end of the J-Pegs. And then I feel too spread out, and I really have not gained a lot of trust in putting weight on the very tip of the J-Pegs. I have just laid a leg out on the wing to get a little stretch every now and then, but that is at slower speeds, not a graceful move at 80 coming back off that wing to hit the peg again.
I think I am going to try the peg lowering brackets from Suburban.
It is the least obtrusive approach is probably my biggest reason, but also as I said, if I can stay on the pegs and be comfortable I prefer that. Then whats up front is even less important. I like the riding position on the pegs just need them a little lower and forward a bit.
AMAZING the cost of these different systems though.
Not slamming anyone, but man this stuff is salty.
