Hey guys, I had to do some editing to my post so I apologize for any confusion. I went to see Brett today to pay my bill. He informed me that the bars we went with were actually their 16 inch bars, not 14's like I thought they were. Sure enough he measured them to be sure and came up with the 16 inch measurement from tip to tip. My ex-wife always said I had trouble with my measurements
I went back in the previous posts and edited 'cos I don't want somebody to not read the entire thread and order something different based on what I had stated.
Today was the first day I got to ride with the bars in decent weather. I am extremely pleased with them. The wrist angles feel good, I have much better control over the bike with these bars in tight turns etc (did some circles just to try them out) and most of all they just look great.
Snapped a few more pictures of them down by the lake where I live. On a side note you'll notice the tracks in the grass just from the front tire.....yea, when i went to take off I realized I probably shouldn't have rode in the grass after 3 days of solid rain!! When I went to take off the back tire went completely sideways. I almost went down but managed not to. Then it felt like the clutch was burned out 'cos the back tire was just spinning in the mud and I was almost sitting still. I left a mess so the homeowners association will probably be trying to hunt me down
I had to come home and put it on the jack and wash the caked out mud and goose crap from under the fender....lesson learned
