Highway pegs and GS style cyl guards

Bought my 07 rt last year and the previous owner had added a few farkles, including the GS style cylinder head guards. After putting more than 6k miles since last July and reading all the collected wisdom on this forum, seems to me my knees would appreciate some highway pegs.

Anyone have any experience mounting pegs that are compatible with the GS style guards (they are the OEM metal ones that are higher at the back of the cylinder head)? I would like to keep the GS guards since I think they look cool and I already tested the left one at 0 mph (think Arte Johnson in Laugh In). Seems the Ilium pegs and the Falcon pegs might work, but I'm reluctant to fork out the bucks without knowing for sure.

Another possible factor is that I have the dreaded 29 inch inseam and am seriously contemplating the new comfort seat.

I heard long ago that a boat is a hole in the water in which you pour money. I didn't know the same rule applied to motorcycles.

Re: Highway pegs and GS style cyl guards

Go to Kuryakyn.com & look thru their many options on mounts and pegs. There should be something in there that would work for almost any application.
