Two Stelvios on "The Tail of the Dragon"

We rode both directions, about 9:30 on a Thursday morning. Great ride, no traffic. Rode our own pace.

foot pegs

What is the height of the SW Motech foot pegs relative to the OEM pegs with the rubber inserts removed?
I tried the Pivot Pegz but they were 3/4" higher. That didn't work for me.

For me, the first consideration is how high the pegs are.; lower is better.
Those Fastways are higher than OEM. Is that the high position? How does the low position compare with OEM?

Consider Pivot Pegz. Their new Mark 3 is 60mm wide; I don't know what the length is but it probably doesn't matter because the pegs will "pivot" and keep better contact with your boot. They have a...
