    Yes, and no.

    I'm 6'2". I thought I'd give them a try, so I rode an R1200RT that has lowered pegs.

    I found that I actually prefer riding with the stock pegs -- especially when I'm in a tuck, forward on the seat, getting aggressive in the corners.

    I use lowered/forwarded pegs and love them. With a handle bar spacer I found I am more comfortable than the crouching position allows.

    I've got the set for rider and passenger installed by BMW dealer. Don't know what make they are but they look like they were born there. Makes shifting more difficult and the dealer says they can install a different shift lever. I'm going to take off the riders and do without them.

    Either that or just rotate the shift lever down one notch.
