1) Hayabusa

2) Sport touring bikes of any make/model

3) Your pegs aren't permanent fixtures! Do something about it!

you can get rearsets made that lower as well.

Buell pegs(the pegs themselves, not the whole rearset) lower an inch. Some ppl have swapped them into busa's CBR blackbirds and SV's. Don't recall the model Buell

I actually have an extra set of lower ones cus I switched to the standard height on my xb-s. If you wanna try it lmk. The firebolt comes with the higher pegs and the lightning comes with the lower ones. Abomb is right on the price of em too, pretty cheap.

thanks guys. im lookin at gettin another bike so i was thinkin about this before hand. as for my bike now i raised the seat quite a bit which has helped tremendously. i dont wanna lower the peg height because that will decrease my cornering ability which is what i crave. but whatever bike i get next i might try the buell idea. thanks guys.

Np. I have not ridden too many bikes, but maybe test a z1000 if you can. If I remember they have pretty room peg distance to seat.

IDK about forward controls, but the Z was a pretty comfortable bike for me. Had one for about a year and a half and took plenty of 400+ mile trips with it. However, the stock seat is like a plank of wood. So change that for a corbin or something and the rest is great.

Hence the suggestion ;)

I can't comment on the newer VTEC motors, but the older motors were soooo smooth and great. Great torque. I WILL fighter out a VFR one of these days!
