short or long highway peg mounts

Hey everyone, I am still a newbie, just getting my 2016 RGU about a month ago. I live in Minnesota, so unfortunately, had to put it into hibernation. So, I had a 2005 Heritage. I am looking at highway pegs, which I had on my Heritage. I made the mistake of having standard on the Heritage, and really had to stretch out my legs, and really ended up not using it much. I was on the Harley site, looking at the short vs. long angled adjustable highway pegs. I am only 5'8", about 30" inseam. Any thoughts on which one I should go with. I am sure there are other vendors out there also that I could be looking at. Thanks.

I am 6' and I have the short on mine, I can stretch out with feet on the pegs, or rest my heels on the boards and the toes on the highway pegs. The long just seem to sit back to far. Those are the short ones in my signature pic.

I'm a towering 5'7" with a 30" inseam. I have the Kuryakyn long mounts that are designed to be used with fairing lowers. They work well for me.

Get the adjustable mounts for the highway pegs and you won't have a problem.
I got my adjustable mounts from HD but I think there are other aftermarket suppliers that have them.

These ones will work perfectly with your inseam. They also work with lower fairings on. They come in black or chrome.

I had the Kuryakyn Highway pegs on my Previous bike. They were a little too far away where my legs were straight when using them.

I like the look of the Harley mounts better than the Kuryakyn. Has anyone used the Harley mounts with the Kuryakyn pegs? I don't want to have to buy all new parts if I can avoid it.
