I got tired of pressure my leg had on it and felt they were raised to high. I then found the MOP's and really like them, no pressure and legs are in a more natural position. They felt a little spongy at first but then i got used to that feeling and now like it. The only thing you need to get used to is your feet are low to the road and I have caught my pant legs on them when putting my foot down at a stop, that was scary! Here is a pic of what your feet look like while riding with MOP's then with Ottomans.
You are right form this view it looks like you could kick a soccer ball on the road without having to move your foot. It is a pretty natural position but on my other bikes highway pegs took my legs more forward so your weight shift was a quarter circle area (tailbone to front portion of cheeks and every point in between). It was a 2 for 1 ease your buns and stretch your legs all at the same time. Agree get use to it.
ride safe :bmw:
PS: Try putting your pant inside your boot to avoid snagging even on regular pegs!!!
