Highway peg relocation

Hey guys need some advice. My 07 Vee came with HB crash bars and some highway pegs mounted on the lower rail of the crash bars.
I would like to move them lower and thought about getting a good engine guard and mounting on it. Is this crazy?
Where have you mounted yours?
Thanks
David

PS yes, Im a newbie to the strom

My happy trails pegs are mounted to my amotostuff skid plate. It was perfect for me until I got the Russell seat, now it is just a bit of a stretch. I'm going to give it another thousand miles or two and if it doesn't get any better then I'm going to cut, add a piece of tubing and reweld the bar back together.

So what is it, am I a smart*** or a dumb***? Maybe I'm just an ***hole.

I have the Hepco-Becker engine guards and fabricated a bash plate and hi-way pegs to mount to it. I used the cross bar as the anchor point for the bash plate and pegs. I also have the Russell Day Long seat and the peg position is great (I'm 6'2"). On a recent long trip I didn't have any of the pain or discomfort that was common without the pegs.

I'll have to figure out how to post pics but it might take a few days.
