Wider and Lower

Greetings!
I'd like to put some lower and wider bars on my RGU. The current riding position with the factory stock bars puts me in a "sit up and beg" position. Would love something closer to what the Road King has. How low can I go? Any HD P/N's that are good for the conversion?

Thanks.
BG

Donít see too many low & wide bars for Road Glides but sinister makes one, seen it on several bikes at the Laughlin river run

My Road King stock bars are higher and more forward than my RGU bars. I might move my RGU bars to the RK this spring but not sure how they will work with no wind protection.

I am affraid that the trend is to go for high bars. I am a victim of such a trend, although I must say that I love it. So no much help from me on low bars.
