6'-3", 260 lbs here with a 34" inseam. Wee is fine for me but I'll offer a couple of points, that, if you're migrating from a bike with different peg placement you might consider:
If you suffer from knee problems - you may find things a bit cramped in one position for too long. I have a small ligament problem on right knee and after about an hour found a little cramping due to riding with the my heel stopped right aginst the rear of the peg. Changed a bit, and now ride with my heel maybe 1" behind the right peg - made all the difference in comfort. I think this may be due to the difference in peg location compared to what I was used to. Makes the brake much easier to use with my size 13s as well and still provides solid footing on the pegs. Other ergonomics I found excellent.
I had a chance a couple of years ago to ride a Vee with lowered pegs - my own experience was I wouldn't do it myself - the lowering units helped with legroom but even with rear brake adjusted to compensate, wasn't a comfortabe reach.
Secondly, I opted not to go to a larger seat - 1" higher is significant but there's no more padding - I raised my seat 3/4" by inserting temperfoam (the memory stuff) under (not over) the stock seat foam and shaped a little more tapered at the front (reaised only the driver portion, not the passenger). This $5 option works well for me and stretches my comfort time from 1 hour to about 2.5-3 hours on the bike if I need to.
My two cents.
