I tried leaving the rear adjuster in the low position. It helped the sliding but it gave my right knee more grief.

I'm looking forward to trying the Rox Risers. I'll be able to move the bars forward a little with those. That will open up the cockpit a little more for my mutantly long arms. I had 35mm risers and 2" lower foot pegs on the 1150. That gave me the near perfect standing posture. There don't seem to be as many options to lower the foot pegs on a 1200-Adventure. All I can find are pegs that lower your foot .8" to 1". I think moving the bushing on Pivot Pegz should give me close to 1" when you factor in how stupid high the stock pegs are. Why do the top of the stock pegs need to be 3/4" above the footpeg mounting pin on the frame of the bike?
