    What's the choice? Fastaway, PivotPegz, Touratech "Front-relocated", Touratech "Rear-relocated", any others?

    Any personal experiences or views on which worked for you and why on the F800GS.

    I'm really happy with my PivotPegz. They offer a big, secure platform for my boots, can be mounted so that they're slightly lower than the stock pegs, and the pivoting action makes it a whole lot easier to shift and brake when wearing stiff, dirt-oriented boots like Sidi Discoveries. I haven't tried any of the others, but haven't felt the need to either.

    I started out with Pivotpegs.

    Took them off after six months, and put on the Wunderlich "lowered" pegs. I've got a 34-inch inseam, and it made a huge difference!

    How are the PivotPegz in size compared to the original BMWs?

    I bought the Fastways. They're reported to knock the kickstand spring peg off if you fall wrong on the left side...so I've always fallen to the right :D I mounted them in the low position and am very happy with them.

    I wanted Roc Stompas, but they were out of stock and out of the country and I needed something wide to give my arches some reprieve on a long trip.

    Thought about the PivotPegz, but my Achilles tendons bother me enough as it is, and I figured I didn't need the extra flexion exacerbating an already painful condition. :eek1

    With the rubber inserts removed, the BMW footpegs are roughly 40mm x 70mm. The PivotPegs are roughly 50mm x 85mm.

    Another satisfied Pivot Pegz customer! Have them on my 800 and had them on my 1200Adventure.

    Won't leave home without them.:thumb:thumb

    Got the lowered Wunderlichs.
    Put them on together with the higher TT seat.
    Absolutely perfect in case you have extraordinary long legs like I have (9'2" with a 37" inseam. Yes I know, bit out of proportion :lol3 )

    Pivot Pegz here too. Good stuff. Just need to lower my break lever as my SIDI Crossfires cause me to drag the break. But the lower position is nicer to my knees when sitting.

    I'd say--must be all torso!

    I've had fastways on two previous bikes and have pivotpegz on the current bike. I prefer the pivotpegz in the low position.

    Another happy Pivot Pegz user here. :clap

    I have screws and metal holding both my ankles together and the right one protests occassionally when it gets too much of a work out. I find the fact that the pegs do the flexing rather than my ankles, the discomfort is less with the Pivot Pegz.

    A bit?!! At 9'2", you have two feet on this guy!

    I know. Not your fault. Feet... Inches... Miles... Yards... Who can keep track of them all? :scratch

    Eventually we'll switch over to the metric system. Hopefully in my lifetime. :rolleyes

    I went with Precision Engenieering's 2" drop pegs (billet). I'm 6'4" so extra 2" helped out the ergo's tremendously. Much better than the stockers for me.

    That is 6'2". :rofl
    Something to do with the steering from the brain to the fingers at the keyboard and the slow feedback from the eyes watching the monitor back to the brain.

    Question for you Pivot Pegz users: After installing the Pivot Pegs, are they lower than the oem pegs (without the rubber)? I plan on instaling the Pivots soon and hope they are a little lower than the oem's.
