My only concern w/ the Hwy Pegs is that if you do drop the bike or slide it the pegs will grip the ground hard causing damage instead of allowing the crash bars to slide like they are meant to.

The metal used in the highway pegs is cheap extrusion.

If you drop the bike the pegs are going to snap off and be gone. I consider them a "crumple zone"
