I know what you mean, it was the same on my 650 as well and seems to be a Versys "thing".

I did look at making/buying some adapters to move the whole footrest hanger on the 650 but now just deal with it on the V1k.

This is a 'feature' of the excellent Versys, it doesn't bother me or get in the way, I've probably become used to it now  :001:

I will be having a pair made to go forward enough to avoid contact with my legs .

I fold up the footpeg with my ankle and deploy the stand with my toes

If the only way to get yr. feet down is with the pegs in the way, you might consider a lowering kit.  :027:

As others have said, it's a matter of habit.
You'll get used to it.
