 They might be moving into BMW territory but if you want to be in the Dirt BMW currently dont have a bike that is close to this bike. The 800 is far apart from this bike.

I totally agree. It just makes it so much more difficult to afford my dream bike.

I am trying to source/decide on suitable footepgs for my AT...  I am used to riding with Ktm exc footpegs and the rally footpegs on my GSA. The std footpegs are insanely small? What's that all about?
Flying brick has the twalcom as well as sw-motech
I got a price on pivot pegz today, my fok  :o
Rockfox have theirs, best value?

has anybody fitted any of the above and how would you rate their fit, position, quality of build etc.

I am bit of a kortgat 1,74m as a point of reference.

 Any comments would be appreciated

I have fitted Rockfox footpegs and they work great.
I am 1.87cm tall and I asked Rockfox to make them 10mm lower than normal.
We do adventure and enduro bike tours, specializing in Lesotho, Namakaland and the Richtersveld.
