If you have floor boards, they spread your legs wider than pegs do.
I found that was happening to me when I received my 1500 that had floor boards on it. I had severe hip pain and leg cramps and thought the same way, moving backwards would help. I put on pegs instead. No more pain(there in the hips). Much more comfortable.
If that is not your case, you can have a seat made for you to fit, especially if you are long legged. If you ride 2up that will cut into the rear seat area, but you can get a trunk relocator kit to move that back a couple inches.
Hope that helps.
