Installed Vindikta Bars

I finally found some bars that I like for my 2015 RGS. The Vindikta Nomads. I'm one of those oddballs that actually like the stock bars, they're not perfect but for me more comfortable than most. I'm not into apes, at least not on the Glide and not much into the meat hooks ether. Although the Vinditka Nomads feel close to the stock bars they don't pull back quite as far and the wrist angle is much better. These are the second set of bars I have tried on this bike but I think these will be staying. So, if your like me and like the stock bars but dislike the wrist angle and want just a little more reach, give these a shot. If nothing else, they look much better than stock.

Joe at Vindikta is a great guy/company to deal with and his product along with customer service is second to none.

Yes, I couldn't agree more. Joe definitely understands the importance of customer service.

I like those a lot.
Id prefer my wrists straight rather than bent out but those look good.
I don't want the high bars most folks go with.

These are apes? Got to admit, I never really thought about what actually defines apes as being apes. I guess for me anything shoulder height or above are apes, which is totally depended on the height of the rider. These Nomads have a 10" rise which is well below the shoulder height of most riders.

I am like you. I like the stock bars on my '15 RGS just fine. Perfectly comfy for me and my bum shoulder. However, I really like the look of those bars (in black) and they look comfy too. I would assume you could rotate those forward/backward as needed? What did those run you?

I agree. Took a month to get mine but they were perfect. The 1 1/2 diameter of the bars really stand out to me
