looking 4 new pullback handlebars

looking 4 new pullback handlebars with about 1" rise and 2" pull back that keeps the factory wrist angle. I looked at heritage bars but the wrist angle looks like it will make my wrist hurt. I like the factory wrist angle but wish they were a little higher and had a better pullback. Any recommendations?
Chromewerks or Fatbaggers for 08 RG? Thanks,LS

Shark, I put the Heritage bars on my '08 and like them much better than the stock bars. I don't find the wrist angle to be uncomfortable. In fact, just before I posted this, I went out to check the angle. I'm 6' and sitting on my bike, my wrists are stright with my forearms. I've had them on since May of this year with no problems.
Hope this helps, Doc.

I have heritage bars on mine too and they are great, I have carpal tunnel in the right wrist and the angle does not aggravate it at all

Buky Bars

Ok Folks
Some pics of Buky Bars assault 12 inch. Work in progress. I did not have to extend the cables. Bars were painted to match bike. Will post more pics when finished

+1 on the Heritage style bars. I'm 6', have a Corbin Rumble seat that moves me back about 1". Got my '13 RGC and thought the stock bars were OK at first. And as long as my arms were moving they were fine. But...., one day on the slab for a lengthy period with very little arm movement and after an hour my shoulders were aching pretty bad. The Heritage style bars fixed it.
