I bought these for my bike, for the same reasons. They do look great. However, for longer trips, they just weren't comfortable, enough, for my legs. I purchased MOPS, and they work really well, for me. So I currently have both on the bike. I should probably sell the Rivcos. By the way, your bike looks awesome!

I'm going off my Kury Ergo IIs due to drag and have been eyeing the MOP GF - vertical mount for tall-ish riders (straight legs with 32" inseam).

Any comments from even taller riders?

Reading the MOP stuff, it seems to be the model for me. OTOH, looking at all the pics, it seems to put my foot a good bit further back than my current pegs so I won't be stretching out, just gaining another foot position. At $330, I may just shake a leg now and then and watch for some used / seconds.

That's where I'm at. Have 2 sets of Kury based stuff on the shelf that I rarely used because I don't like the spread position and they would drag if I really pushed so I took them off and I've done the last 20K miles or so with nothing.

I'd like to try the MOP's that mount on the vertical bar...but at $330...I can deal with just shaking a leg here and there. It would be nice to have something for days longer than 600 miles. But I only do 5 or 6 of those a year and can just deal with being cramped for a bit.

(besides....after doing 400 miles on my KTM with it's rock hard seat, forward bars and skinny foot pegs.... the stock Wing feels like a recliner)

Current Stable:
2016 KTM Super Duke GT
2015 Honda Grom
2015 Yamaha FZ-09
2013 Honda GL1800 ABS
2004 Suzuki GSXR 750 (Track)

I'm quite happy with my Ergo II pegs. I tend to only use one at a time, that way it gives my knees a break, stretches my back a little, changes the weight distribution on my butt, and at the same makes it a little easier to react quickly if I need to (one foot is always either on the break or ready to downshift).

I can definitely see how the MOPs would help on long stretches of highway, I just can't justify the expense in relation to the amount of straight-line highway miles I travel.

6'2" with 35" inseam.
I've got their GQ's. Used their "Making sense of your options" page to help make my decision.
My primary concern being clearance, I chose the shortest legs (9 1/2") & blocks with least drop (30).
With them mounted as high as possible on the vert this gives me roughly 10" of ground clearance with pegs deployed. I still regularly drag 'em in the turns but with them spring loaded they jus "float" upward, no biggie.
I only have two issues with them, you gotta throw your legs pretty high to get on 'em, & ya gotta kinda hook 'em with your heels. This gets tedious on a long ride day whereas with fix mounted you're jus' on & off easier. I'm only on top of the pegs when we're carvin' up good road, the rest of the time I usually ride over the top of them, easier to jus throw your legs over than try & catch them (but I've scraped many a heal in a turn this way).
Didn't figure I could fix mount any peg high enough to clear and still be comfortable (although sometimes I'm still tempted to try it). Mick O Pegs have been the perfect compromise between comfort & clearance for me, YMMV...

http://www.ridingiswonderful.com/page13.php
Model Designations (i.e. Model E.5D):
The first letter & number (E.5) identifies the 'Leg' used. The 'Leg' is the long flat bar between the mounting 'Block' and 'Peg' on which you place your foot.
'Offset' is how far the two bends move the 'Peg' out (.5 = 1/2 inch).
The second letter identifies the mounting 'Block' (D).

'LEGS' for Gold Wings:

D is 12 1/2" long with a 1 1/2" offset.
E is 12 1/2" long with a 1 1/2" offset and a 20 degree twist (for mounting Pegs outboard).
E.5 is 12 1/2" long with 1/2" offset and a 20 degree twist.

G is 9 1/2" long with a 1 1/2" offset and a 20 degree twist.
K is 9 1/2" long with two unequal bends.

Mounting 'BLOCKS' for Gold Wings:

A mounts on the horizontal engine guard and allows the 'Leg' to drop about 45 degrees.
B mounts on the horizontal engine guard and allows the 'Leg' to drop about 38 degrees.
D mounts on the horizontal engine guard and allows the 'Leg' to drop about 30 degrees.
L mounts on the horizontal engine guard and allows the 'Leg' to drop about 20 degrees.
F mounts to the vertical engine guard and allows the 'Leg' to drop about 45 degrees.
Q mounts to the vertical engine guard and allows the 'Leg' to drop about 30 degrees.

Not a comment on MOPs (sorry), but I do have one on the Ergo IIs. I had the Ergo IIs for a while and those were the first thing that touched down when cornering (really made me nervous since they don't have any give!). I switched to the spring-loaded Ergo IIIs. I can have the highway pegs at the same spot when in use, but now they come up a bit when I take my feet off. Now, the first thing that touches down are the stock foot pegs (and those have give to them).
