I agree to an extent.
I do think the only way to tell is to get a chance to ride, or at least sit, on a bike that has the bars someone wants.
I'm your height, but a bit lighter at about 205-210.
I just think as with seats everyone is different, and just has to try things to see how they work.
I have tried many things on different bikes that other swore by for diff reasons, and hated em.
For examole, I have yet to find a seat, even at 700 bucks plus, that my ass an stay on for an entire tank of gas without some degree of discomfort.
The best seat was one that cost less than 100 to have modded from MCC.
I hope the OP takes some of what we say into account, but I would never want anyone to spend money based on my 2 cents.
Just had a forum member ride my bike a couple times, debating an RG to replace his SG. He's no more than 2" shorter than me, yet my setup that I find more comfortable than I've ever been on a bike doesn't quite work for him.
My 12" Windvest didn't work for him as well as the 10", and like you, he found the wrist angle of the bars a bit uncomfortable. I'd say my arms are a bit longer than his, not really sure which of us is wider in the shoulders, I can't really judge! lol
These posts are always tough. Pipes and oil are almost easier than someones comfort!
