I know posts and questions like this will get 100 different responses of what works, but I'm 6'2" (maybe 1.9m for those outside the US?) and coming from a big BMW GSA, I found the ergonomics of the 1200X/CT cramped. If you think the 1200X is big, don't get on a GSA, you'll be in shock.
Anyways, I originally bought some Knight Design lowering pegs and some basic SWMotech bar risers, and I still wasn't totally happy. Nothing wrong with the Knight Design pegs, other than for US$200, they are not cheap, and I had a mishap where my bike went down at slow speed doing a u-turn, and one of the pegs did not hold up to the abrasion - a little bit of the peg was shorn off the bottom. They are aluminum, and that is to be expected. I ended up replacing with a set of Pivot Pegz, which aren't cheap either, but I really like them. They aren't technically meant to lower foot position, but do allow for movement fore/aft, and I find the platform surface much more comfortable than a simple peg since more of your foot surface is supported. I don't feel I need lowered pegs now that I have the Pivot Pegz.
Regarding the bar risers, lots of opinions on those, but do understand that they raise the bike's center of gravity, which impacts handling and steering. That's just the law of physics, not personal opinion. There is a trade off, they do put you in a more upright and relaxed position for highway riding, though I find steering and control at lower speeds takes a little more effort and can be a little twitchy. Once you're on the highway, then the bar risers really shine. I'm still on the fence with those, I always wonder if I should remove them, but then I get lazy.
