Northeast Indiana or northwest Ohio area

Anyone around here have factory 47 bars on their bike.

I live by fort Wayne so central Indiana is cool for a drive if anyone is willing to let me sit on their bike

I live to far haha but I will say that I've have had 3 different bars on my 2017 RGS in 3 months and I can tell you that for me, I will never go with anybody else, the Factory 47s are absolutely perfect..

Also, its crazy how many people you see using these bars.. They must be doing really well.

I'm torn between the 12 and 14 inch.

Not many roadies around me and even fewer with bars.

There is another post, just a few days ago, about this exact topic, I think the consensus is you should go with 14s. Unless you are super short.

Here its is: https://www.roadglide.org/24-controls...ture-bars.html

Yeah it's my post. I'm 6'3 but my seat is missed down an inch and back 1.5 inches.

This is why I don't have bars. I get nervous and don't pull the trigger

Maybe it wasn't my thread. I looked in my thread and don't see any pictures of your bike
