These risers are are the rubber mounted ones made for ATV's and work really well at dampening out the Betas high rev buzz on transport sections.

As a further heresy I'm considering fitting pivot pegs as they are so comfortable to stand on on my trail bike and adv bike - I'm sure that will get a few eye rolls as well from the purists.
No eye roll here. For what you are using the bike for, it sounds great! Beta makes the long range tank/seat deal, are you considering it for the trail riding?
