I couldn't agree more. I just got back from a 3 day/1000 mile trip on my 06 883L. Going back and forth from the highway pegs to the mid controls really helped change my "butt position" and make the ride bearable.The best bike I had for long distance comfort had mid controls with highway pegs. Maybe you could add some mid mount pegs in addition to your forward controls. This would give you an additional place to relocate your leg position when they get tired.
