6'2" 32" inseam and love mine. Actually it is a heel heel shifter for me. The boards give me more room to move around. My hwy boards are set so I can bridge from the foot bd to the hwy bd and an extention on the brake pdl allows me to get to it easier.
Mine was a bit sticky for a while, but it's great after some fine tuning. Only reason I haven't put boards on my '09 is I don't like the idea of the side stand being awkwards to reach. Never had any isues with the 1200 when I had the Markland set on it, and didn't have h/t or boards on the 1500.
