Here`s what I did for my trip around Australia.. Worked out very well for the long days on tar and enabled me to stretch my legs and move around the bike to find more comfortable possitions..
Welded a small bracket to the crashbars and then re-powder coated the bars..

Spent more time with the back of my boot on the peg and my leg fully extended.. Great to stretch the back of the legs..
But if your going to the same trouble of welding and then powder coating the crashbars then I really recommend modifying the side stand while your on the go.. I can`t understand why KTM have made such a small foot for such a large bike designed to be in the mud..
Such a simple mod enabled me to park pretty much wherever I needed to without the the fear of the bike falling over..
