Highway peg question

I just put some crash bars on my 650 and am wondering if I should put foldable or non-foldable highway pegs on. There is a plate welded onto the bars that allow me to hard bolt some bmx pegs and I think they would act like frame sliders but not sure if I want the constant wider profile and wondering how they may act in the event of an off road laydown.

well, that's kinda a silly question- foldable, of course! (IMHO!)

My foldables get right outa the way when I don't use them. Sure nice to have them and stretch out! They were on the bike when I got it, but I couldn't live without them.

I searched on eBay for bolt on type highway pegs that folded but couldn't find any. In the mean time, I bolted on the bmx pegs with a 3/4 inch bolt and then put some radiator hose over them for traction. The price was right as everything was stuff I had laying around.
