18 inch ape hangers

Pulled the trigger today on 18' apes, was going to go with Yaffe 10 monkey bars but drove a RG with 18 inch apes..... they are cooooool I like them straight up, always had drag bars but looking forward to a new style.... cruising with one hand on the throttle and one on my lap. Anyone out there agree?

Chainsaw I am a little technically challenged with this job, a lot different than the derbey cover advice you gave me Actually found a really good mom and pop shop that is going to do the job... hidden wires, braided cables, switch my chrome controls etc.... 425.00 total including the bars, funny thing though as I was leaving I noticed all the 1% patches guys were wearing... even the owner

X-Cellent! You been hangn here TOOOO LOOOONG! LOL I just checked out your bike from your profile. They will b Beast! I saw a "NEW" red street glide the other day w/ kila wheels and X-tra Tall Apes. He painted his switch housings on the bars to match the red. It really stood out! Since ya got chrome allready,...ghummmm. I wont suggest that! Whats next?,... Wheels?

I really thought 18 would be too high and hard to control but after the test ride they were easier to handle than stock and surprisingly comfortable plus they look real bad.... old school.

I have a matching inner fairing plus gauge housing that should be here in 2 weeks, going to stretch the front forks new rim and tire... kinda leaning towards a spoked wheel with custom paint matched spokes also going to lower the bike and do something to increase the speed... kinda sluggish. I have a custom c&c seat on the bike I don't think its on my gallery yet.

Seems like there is never an end to adding things to the bike, starting to get expensive but it keeps me out of strip clubs and all nighters which keeps the wife off my back

The bike itself is just the down payment on all the goodies!
