Because I have a very strong personal dislike for:
a/ the stock bars that pullback way too far
b/ high apes that rise above the fairing level on a touring bike (get a kick-only Shovel/Pan to look badass, i say!)
c/ weird bends and ''unicorn'' points on any bars
d/ buying the same brand as 80% of other riders
d/ T-bars on a Road Glide...you're kidding right?
...I have gone with these.......10in KST Outlaws. LOVE them.
Right shape, right height, right look, right on for comfort. Made in the USA.
I am 6ft2in and all those quotes you read everywhere along the lines of ''I am 6ft Xinches blah blah, so I gotta go to 14in/16in, right?'' are just so much horse hockey. I have flat drag bars on my Shovelhead and they are really comfortable too.
That's my 3.5c (adjusted for $US exchange rate ) ;-)
