Why didn't I do this sooner?...

After almost two years of enjoying my sweet RGU. I changed the stock bars to the heritage bars since I'm about to to a 1400 mile road trip. OMG! It's like a different bike. No more pain in the back and it just nice to seat there and control the bike effortlessly.
This is the best mod ever!

Many RG riders seem to really like the Heritage bars. I thought about them myself at one point, but decided to go with some 10" baby apes instead. Definite improvement over the stock bars as well.

I think HD should have had these bars as the bars that comes with the RGU to start with. With the heritage bars you have the correct position of a touring bike, rather than the fun but impractical "bad ass, look-at-me position with the stock bars"
