Vortex Peg Placement?

Stupid Question but for (tall rider) is it best to place pegs at lowest and most forward position for ease or foot transition placement and comfort?

Im about 6 foot but i actually prefer my pegs to be farther back and up. It just feels better to me while cornering.

Just pick a setting that is comfortable for you, thats the biggest thing.

i guess it depends on how tall you really are... i'm 5'11" and i have mine in the farthest set and 2nd from the top, thinking of going up one hole too but this is mostly for track. i do ride street a fair bit and i dont bother changing anything, i can spend all day on the bike but sometimes my knees do get a bit sore.

if i was street only i'd probably put them lower.
