I like this idea. I have some pegs mounted on my R&G bars but they keep turning if i put much weight on them. With you modification I wouldn't have to worry about that & it looks like it would be pretty simple for a competent welder to do it. Not me for sure but a real welder!!

No vibrations.  I do have thick rubber soled boots.

Those are still the RG bars correct?

Adopted BigD's idea then rode from Seattle to San Diego (1150 miles) a couple of weeks ago. Outstanding addition to my bike. These pegs gave me three optional riding positions for my feet: pillion pegs, feet on highway pegs, and straighten my leg and lay the back of my boot, just above the ankle, on the highway peg.

That third alternative works because I have only a 29 inch inseam. Since I don't really have a grip with my foot when it's just lying there, I only rest one leg at a time, but it's nice to be able to completely straighten the leg and stretch it for a bit.

Having four different positions provides slight changes in ergonomics that help the legs, back, arms et al.

A tip of the hat and thanks BigD.   :152:

BigD - real work of art.  Great idea and easy to do.  Thinking outside the box and engineering improvements that benefit all of us.

Well done BigD!
