Besides this modification of the rear brake, I just added some extra foot pegs to my AT DCT.
I placed them in a lower and forward position si I can stretch my legs during long highway rides. They do not get in the way, and make all the difference in the world as far as resting is concerned and extended my continuos riding time without having to stop.
Also, as I changed the rear brake pedal to the left side of the handlebar just as in an scooter, I was able to retire the rear brake pedal and get a lot of clearence for my right foot.
Below are a couple of pictures.
