They are a little pricey, no surprise, but I like the convertible design so you can remove the rubber insert to get a full cleated peg. I was looking at the stock pegs and they don't look very off-road friendly.



I have 'em. Love 'em.

Though honestly, given the bike's overall limited suitability for off-road, I've not found any deficiencies with the stock foot pegs as they are.
I like cleated pegs so I removed the rubber inserts from the stockers. Vibration wasn't a problem but those suckers are a bit small and cheesy looking so I ordered these from MG Cycles. I eagerly await their arrival.

The V-Strom pegs will definitely fit.
The Guzzi pegs are now on my Strom (that will go up for sale soon).

The Moose Racing pegs that I ebay'ed and modified for the strom are now on the Stelvio.
They have no rubber option, but they grip well. So far the vibrations have NOT been an issue. The pegs look aggressive enough to rip the bottom of the boots up, but they don't, and my boots don't slip on them at all.

To expand the pegs realm, the Strom and KLR are compatible with each other, too...

I like this shot my wife took this weekend, parked beside some tulips. Weather was perfect, and we had a nice couple days in the WA backroads.

I also peeked inside the Aux lights to see how the wires looked, not good.



I will have to fix this when I get it home. Thanks for all the info you guys have supplied, it has made a difference.

I am scheduled to pick it up next Friday morning. I probably won't sleep much next week, LOL.

They did source this bike from Pro Italia and has 22 miles on it. Monica told me the orange Stelvios are backordered from Italy, there is no stock of them in a warehouse.
Very nice. Is that a '12 or '13? Cannot tell the difference to my B.O '12.

Looking forward to meeting up.

Well one thing is for sure. You can't go by pictures on the orange. Nothing seems to capture the color real well. It even seems to confuse the software on my cameras and my computer. In person it just grabs you where it counts.

Inaugural ride in Bozeman yesterday as weather was phenomenal. The Guzzi ran like a champ...but sorry...no pics

It's a mode on my Android phone camera. You upload it to Google+ and then it works the magic. I just take advantage of the Google magic.

Would there be one of these for each side, or one that covers both lights? I haven't really dove into the wiring much on this bike.

One for each side. The wiring harness has two plugs, one for right and one for left so you need two.
