I've never even heard of a merganser.

Err, megameter. I'm thinking you made that shit up.

Isn't a merganser a duck?

I ground down my pegs on the gen 1, I think mostly from a worn shock that I refused to replace.

I've touched a few times on my current bike, and I think that was mostly due to poor riding position.

Ironically, my comfortable foot riding position has the outer heel of my boots hanging off the peg about 1/4". So many times, my boot becomes the "feeler" and when I get the tickle, I know that the end is near.

No highway pegs on the FJR for Pants. After seeing Josh in my mirror pogo his Gen 1 on the hwy pegs on Hwy 348 in North Georgia, that cured any curiosity on that matter.
