Factory 47 Signature 12s or 14s

I'm debating between installing 12" or 14" Factory 47 Signature bars on my 2018 RGS. Does anybody have side view pics of these with the bars in line with the forks and factory windshield? I'm leaning towards 14s but don't like the look of handlebars above the windshield.

14" very comfortable with a 11" Freedom Shield. Stock shield is about 6".

I'm not a fan of the look of the 14s over the fairing either. I went with the 12s. And am glad I did. I don't have the stock shield though. I have the 14" KW Sportflare. With the 12s and the cvo solo that's at least 1.5 to 2" down and back I'm pretty much in the same position as the 14s without the look. When I have my hammock seat on for the long haul it sits me back up but I'm ok with that arm position too. If the look of the 14s bothers you and your like me. Go with your gut.

Yall ride Road Glides for pete's sake, so you already prefer comfort over appearance. I find this aversion to handlebars "above the windshield" to be humorous.

See and I think it's the best looking bike Harley makes.

side view

tried to get some good sideways pics for you from my computer...even tho one has the windshield removed...the klock werks flare deflects the wind up and over my hands pretty well.

These are the 12" bars
