no need for apes! check out these bars!

Risers on a 2010 roadglide. this set up rocks, I can change the hieght of my bars by changing the risers or adding riser extentions to find that sweet spot.

I'm thinking that if you use your stock bars and either a 4 or 6 " riser it will do just fine.

This is exactly what I was thinking of doing. Maybe a dumb question, but will any riser for a harley work on an RG?

RG with risers.

yes, risers will work just fine with your stock bars. your stock bars look really good on roadglides, there just a little to low for my taste. I have a bad back and i've found out when I raise my bars to be in line with my shoulders it takes the pressure off my lower back. its real hard to find a set of bars that look good on a roadglide. When you go with the risers its nice because you can keep all the wires outside the bars. With the new fly by wire system it's a pain to get all the wires inside the bars. When you leave the wires outside the bars you have options, you can change the bars easily, you can change the risers, you can add riser extentions, if theres a short in a wire its easy to access.

risers

yes, you can use any risers, I think chubby, burly bars, makes the nicest stuff.
