Default Passenger footrests

OK, so after a 2 day trip up to the Duluth area and the North Shore of Superior (that's one of them there big damned lakes up north, for those who don't know ) The wife had some complaints about leg comfort, when riding on the back for long stretches (hour and a half to 2) She says her legs cramp up and she just feels the passenger foot rests don't allow her to stretch her legs enough (she's 5' 11" and not a small women) and when she gets uncomfortable she starts squirming around (remember, big woman) and this causes some very un-nerving behavior of the bikes handling.

So my question is, has anyone else had this type of complaint from the "better" half before, and what if anything did you do to address it and make it better? I have already lowered the floorboards to their lowest position. Wife's feet are still at the front edge of the floor boards overhanging the front edge by half her foot.

I use Kuryakyn SwingWings. My wife loves these things, she has the option of a mini-floor board or highway peg.

Thanks guys for the links, but those say they are for bikes with pegs, I have a CCT with passenger foot boards, not pegs. I need to come up with something that works with the boards.
