Yes, I have. My brother whom I often travel with has one, and we swap bikes. I should have clarified: the bottom edge of the fairing hits me in the calves/shin area when I put my feet on the highway pegs...which are attached to engine crash bars.

My brother has to wear high boots or his lower leg gets irritated by the rubbing agains the fairing.

And yes, the highway pegs are quite functional...but the width of the engine requires me to splay my legs waaay more than I like. That's all.
