My problem is two fold. My ankles and my riding boots. It's just a weird angle with the under the toe shifter and pressing the brake pedal. Thought if the pegs were a little lower it should be all good.
I always wondered why manufacturers of Sports touring bikes don't design a model with a forward-control, like the cruisers models, and with the legs inside the fairing.
Seems to me, it would be an ergonomic way to tour on a bike.
Except for the Goldwing, most sports touring bike have pegs positions that are not user-friendly for long rides.
Maybe all these bike makers own all the hwy peg manufacturers in incognito form, so they make the bike uncomfortable on purpose--no? too much conspiracy theory? maybe?
ON A SIDE NOTE:
How about the seat?
Everyone who buys a sports touring bike changes the seat, particularly if they use it for long riding. Very few, and I mean very few riders accept the ergonomics of an OEM sports touring seat.
It appears more important to manufacturers to make seats to target marketing-looks than for pragmatic- ergonomics--again, the Goldwing appears to be the only comfy seat for long touring.
My question is: Would they sell less bikes if they made the seats more comfortable, but perhaps more ugly cause they don't follow the visual lines of the bike? They must think so cause they keep making them uncomfortable but cute.
