Another Factory 47 convert

Bit the bullet and couldn't be happier. Put 12" Signature bars on my 2017 Road Glide Special.Took me the better part of yesterday and had to finish up today. Some of it was carelessness, some of it was just that chasing the wires is a bitch. Took it out this morning for a test ride and couldn't be happier. Slow riding is 100% smoother, the riding position puts me more upright. Amazing what 3" difference makes when it is in the right position (that's what she said).

I did buy the handlebar video from www.lawabidingbiker.com which I highly recommend. It gives details that I had not seen anywhere else. Well worth the money.

I like mine as well.
Only wish I could pull the bars back slightly more and rotate the controls forward a bit more.
Seems like my controls are pointed down a little to much.

I have my bars rotated almost all the way forward, kept them just far enough so the levers don't hit my 14" LRS at full lock. It all works out well for me. Can't wait to put some long miles on it next week.

Why? Just found them in the last month. Haven't spent enough time to form a firm opinion.
