I have seen advertisements for Roadsmith's Comfort Controls. They move the rider's feet three inches forward and one inch down. Roadsmith claims that it improves leg comfort on long rides.

I am a little taller than average (6'3") and my knees get uncomfortable after a long week of riding. I have highway boards, but that is only a partial answer. I found out that these cost $700.00 plus installation. It seems like a great idea, but I don't want to spend that much without some knowledge.

Have you tried these? Especially any tall guys?

I sat on a 2012 at the Honda dealer in Atlantic, Ia over the weekend that had them mounted on it. I'm about 6' tall so thought they felt good for me. They move your feet forward and down. They are a little on the expensive side. I would of liked to of rode the thing but they were on a new bike in the showroom so they wouldn't let me ride it. I think they would definitely help with the knee soreness.

I guess these things are not selling like hot cakes! They are a bit too pricey for me without any more feedback. While riding this morning, I slid my feet all the way forward on the original pegs. It seemed to "unbunch" my jeans from behind my knees.

My butt rarely gets tired or sore, but my knees and hips do (in the afternoon of a long day and earlier the second day, and even earlier on the third day). Long legs are a disadvantage at times. Especially riding in an airplane. I know, now I sound like I am whining. :-({|=

I'm sure those that like to drag their floorboards or pegs will not be buying any Roadsmith Comfort Controls. I like the idea myself mainly because the floorboards I've mount on my 2012 are a little to the rear and a bit uncomfortable. The Roadsmith Comfort Controls move the floorboards or pegs down 1" and forward 3". For the price I would have to at least be able to sit on a Wing with the Roadsmith Comfort Control before buying.
