I've got some of the Kuryakyn ones, which are similar to what you've got. Very nice. I like that they give me a place to stretch out and change things up a bit on long rides.

I couldn't get the Kuryakyn ones in chrome.

I did just finish a 250-mile lunch run in 98 + degree weather. With my feet resting on the toe rests, I noticed I get a lot more airflow to my upper body. Even through it was hot out it did seem to keep me cooler.

Yeah I've noticed a slight change in the wind pattern when I use them.

A few weeks ago I did a 2100km (1300 mile) ride and discovered I could put my heel on the top then lean forward at the waist to stretch out my hamstring.

I have the Kuryakyn ones - I mounted them as high as I could - I didn't feel comfortable just placing my boots right on the engine guards, and with them being "high", I can stretch the calves out. I've added the Kuryakyn footrests lower on the bar - it's good to have options

I have the Kuryakyn toe rests also. I’ve use footrests before and found then too wide for long term comfort on the RM. The toe rests give me enough options to change my foot positions between gas stops.

I agree, I've had footrests on my Victory Cross-country and didn't like them. They were too wide for me. I really like the toe rests on my RM. I'll probably get a set for my Vic.
