Can't abide stiff boots, personally.

FWIW I fitted Pivot Pegs this winter. Don't notice a big difference and really don't pay any attention to them at all....maybe that's good. Only time I really noticed them was leanging way back going through some deep mud recently. It's kinda nice to have the peg go with you rather than being perched on the back edge of a non-rotating peg.
I believe you already have GIVI wing racks so the Trekkers should snap right in for you. Keep in mind as functional and good looking these bags are is that the 33 liter size is not all that roomy. However they are very robust and solid and have some weight to them.
The new racks that I recieved (to fit GIVI's) are made by 5star in Germany and come with 2 standoffs to put the rear blinkers/stalks rearward 3". Kit even comes with butt splices and wire to lengthen everything.
Weather changed here...sub-zero in the garage again. Installation on hold.
