Dang that would be some tall bars on a RG. I'm running 16" apes and they are shoulder height only if I sit upright. Shouched and relaxed they are over my shoulders. Granted I'm only 5'8" but they are tall bars non the less. Not sure what state your in but bars that tall will definately attract some unwanted attention from the boys in blue.

2011 RGU with more money then sence in it.
Oh and its black because blacks faster.

At least 20". They have so many people that make bars. I used BR custom bars. They're great, but the build time is tooooo long.

To each his own. Have you ridden really tall apes? Some people love 'em. For me, aside from the inevitable shoulder and back pain, there's a control issue. The RG is such a superb handling bike that at least for me, it seems that some degree of precision in maneuvering the bike would definitely be lost...

Perhaps, and then again, perhaps not, but definitely not for me.
