Black or chrome bars?

I can't decide, I like the look of black bars but I have no intention to black out the bike. If this were your bike and you were only replacing the bars, would you go with Chrome or Black?

I am planning on ordering the Buky Bars, either Malo or Mad Doggers.

I'm in the same dilemma. I think I am going to go with chrome just to keep the contrast.ImageUploadedByMO Free1368218181.610865.jpg

Any pics of them. Do they have more pull back than the stockers?

I have a CVO anniversary too. My point was that most people put chrome on their bikes and that black is less common.
