Bars on bike

Looking to replace the bars on my new road glide. Any suggestions to get more of a laid back feel? Thinking about just stock heritage bars.

Heritage bars work for me. They are kinda like mini apes.

My buddy has an '04 shark with the heritage bars. He's a tall guy but says he loves them. I'm probably 6"-7" shorter than him (5'9", I have a 71" reach) but I just ordered the Wild 1 Chubby 14" apes for mine. Guess it just depends on personal preference and what you are comfortable with.

This is a very subjective topic and probably one of the most difficult decisions to make cuz its all about YOUR comfort. Check out the handlebar section or the post pics of your bike thread to get a glimpse of the bars on bikes. Personaly i have 12.5 wild1 chubbys and couldnt be happier. Good luck in your search

Now that was kinda funny. Adult beverage helped. But still funny.

Once I make up my mind, I'm full of indecision.

Moved to the handlebar subforum. Please try to create threads in the proper forums to make it easier to search and find information.
