"I LOVE the Pivot Pegz. Riding on this latest trip from Seattle to Tierra del Fuego on a R1200GS Adventure I have been standing a lot on the pegs, sometimes all day. Without Pivot Pegz my feet would have been very tired, but with Pivot Pegz this was much better. I really like the way that they pivot, it feels very natural and is extremely comfortable. At the first I thought this was going to be very strange, but immediately I got used to the pivot action and have enjoyed using these for many years now. Greetings from Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. ."
