    here is shot of my boot resting flat on the peg. there is plenty of room but I am sure my foot is flexed somewhat forward when I am actually riding. I dont find myself ever dragging the brake.

    Hey Jarrett, boy i do know what you mean. At 6'6", 36" inseam and usually 240lbs i do know! I too went with an aftermarket Shad seat(i'm buying a RDL this winter), then i raised the front of the Shad seat with the rubber chair tips, i also installed the Rox Risers to reposition the bars, i then went with a nice pair of high pegs for a change in feet position. Next i may look at lowering my pegs for another .5"-1". Sure made a wonderful difference. At first i could barely ride 20-30 mins without aggravating my Arthritis/Gout. Now with the better seat, bar risers and highway pegs, man i have ridden several 450-500 mile one day trips! I also stop a lot for pictures, scenery, snacks/water, stretch, boy it sure has made a difference! :{)

    Thanks for all the tips.

    If I was going to pick one seat manufacturer to make me a seat that is 3 inches taller than stock, which one would you recommend?
