Denise and I took a ride this afternoon out to the Ohio River access point at Golconda, Illinois, and took a few pictures.
First, one of me standing beside it (6'5" and 210 pounds) and one of Denise standing beside it (5'5" and 117 pounds), just so you have an idea of how you might fit the highway pegs if you're in between those extremes . . .
Now, here is a picture of me in a normal seating position, using the Versys's stock pegs:
Here's me with my foot on the highway peg - which, given my 35" inseam, doesn't let me stretch out, but does significantly change the way my weight is distributed on the seat and bars. It gives my butt and back a welcome and stable shift on long rides:
And, finally, here's me with my leg extended and the back of my boot resting on the rubber anti-vibration cushions of the highway pegs. I don't usually do this with both feet at one time, but it gives a really nice stretch to each leg if I alternate them in this position for about five minutes every hour or so on a long ride. Hey, stop laughing at how I make even a tall bike look like a Shriner's mini-moto! It's not polite . . .
This might be a whole lot more visual information than you wanted, but I hope it helps out those of you who are wondering about how the highway pegs might work for you.
