Suburban Machinery makes a set of peg extenders for the GT, as does Verholen. I put the Verholen 40mm (1.5") peg extenders on the day I got the GT. The SM extenders are fixed, but the Verholen extenders are two-piece with a serrated interface which allows a bit of fore-and-aft adjustment if needed. But I found that once they're set you don't really need to move them.

With those and the seat in the high position I had a good amount of added leg room. But it's much easier to drag the lowered pegs in the corners, so if you're an aggressive rider then you might want to consider that. When I got more comfortable on the bike such that I could drag the pegs at will, I ended up pulling them off. I haven't really noticed any comfort issues without them, but my seat is always in the high position which helps a bit there.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I have the SM lowers, and even on 2 helmets, they will drag or catch your foot if you are lax and not on the balls of the your boots. Normal riding they are fine.
