Too much ease?
Haven't had them on every type of trail, but so far have not caught them on anything. I rode a few sections of deeply rutted track and they were not an issue. About the only time I think they could be an issue (which the stockers could be too) is in some baby-head size rocky terrain. I've been riding with a fellow 1200GSer when he has snagged his peg on a rock and broke the frame.

The extra comfort while standing on the pegs made for a lighter touch on the bars (throttle) giving some extra confidence through the slow technical stuff. There is a noticeable decreased knee bend while sitting too. I run hwy pegs on my crash bars and floating my feet between the two on longer rides keeps the blood flowing well.

Have yet to scrape them cornering in the twisties.
