Jumped through the hoops, this morning and put a set of Harley Heritage bars on my 2011 RGU. The parts guy at the dealer said they are 3" up and 2" back of the stock bars (which were hurting my shoulder after only 20 or 30 miles) - What a difference! I've only put a few miles on it so far, but can already tell that it's a huge improvement.

Fairly easy install, the hardest part was having to hang the outer faring back on the hooks and do it blind. I used a length of stout picture hanging wire to thread the TBW harness back through the new bars and it worked well.

A big thank you to everyone who has posted their experiences on this forum. Thanks to a couple of excellent write-ups, I knew exactly where the snake pits were and how to avoid them....
