Longer Shifter

After riding my bike around for a week or so I figured out that my size 11 riding boot was way to big for the stock shifter set up. I ordered a Moose +1 shifter.

While waiting for it to get here I went on a ride with a few of my buddies that have the new BMW GS1200. The distance between the peg and the shifter on the BMW's were longer than my stock set up - and might be longer even with my new shifter. Just something I noticed.

Here are a few before and after photos:

Before - or the stock size. I don't think this shifter was the standard one.
