Helibars

Not that it's an item often seen for sale but I'm probably gonna bite the bullet and give them a try sometime before spring. If anybody happens to have a set for sale send me a PM.

Nice bar - have seen them up at Laconia but they are very pricey! I don't know how the wires would be run to allow all the adjustments the bars can provide without weakening the connections put perhaps they have that all worked out.

I agree with you on that. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the external wiring but they've been around a long time and I haven't read of any issues.

I've had mine for several years, so has the wife on her bike. Best bars I have ever had, wiring is external with 0 problems. I'm a comfort over looks guy anyway. I do get a lot of compliments on the bars

Sunday I ride over to Daytona and picked up a set for my wife's Street Glide. I wasn't too keen on all external wiring, but the black bars will hide it pretty good. I notice that 2 of the "Ride like a Pro" instructors at Destination Daytona was using Helibars.

Besides the price (ouch) the external wiring is my concern also. I intended on using chrome bars.

A friend that joined us in Daytona had them installed on his 14 Ultra Classic. He told us these bars made a huge difference in slow maneuvering/control, and arm and shoulder fatigue is now gone. They are expensive, but so far he thinks they are worth every penny. I'm just waiting for my wife's verdict before I think about a set for my CVORGU (these frick'n bars are about to kill me).

I wish they attended shows in Atlanta also. Maybe I'll flag 'em down on the way back north

I have the Horizon Helibars and I absolutely love them. Granted... spendy, but I wouldn't trade them for any other bar.
