I have one on my 1100. I didn't like it at first, but because of the size of my feet (16EEEE) I have no real choice other than a whole lot of custom fab work. After riding with it for a few months, I think I will keep it.

+It allows a sasquatch like me to ride
-floor boards to drag on tight corners
+more comfortable than stock pegs
-substantial movement required to shift gears

all in all I think it boils down to personal choice. Try it for a while, but save your stock parts until you are sure you want to keep the h/t.
