Thumb removable pillion foot pegs????

In looking at those awesome "uncrating" photos (thank you...) it doesn't look like the rear footpegs are removable? Can anybody with their hands on one now comment how these attach?

They are bolted from below, removable, bolts can't be seen in the side view (hidden). I've marked the bolt direction in red.

Thanks Tallguy! very clever. Between taking these pegs, the rear grab bar, and that enduro seat it really tidies up the rear end; gives the gal a nice bucket so to speak.

No, I'm not rich, but while you have been squandering your money on every new thing that comes out I have been saving since I bought my last bike in 2005 for this one. Perhaps if you had a little more financial self control you would be anxiously waiting a new bike like the rest of us prudent savers instead of sucking hind teat with the pigs.
Was that really necessary?

I can think of one reason. Only the daytime running light is on.
