Road6Custom

Anyone running the Road6Custom 9" Road Glide Road HOLEY ROLLER HANDLEBARS or the 12" Ape hangers? I not sure which to go with I only really would like to get a few inches higher than stock as I am 6 foot tall. Not sure if 12 will be to high. I would also like to stick with stock cables if possible.

Bike is a 2013 Road Glide Ultra.

Is there a difference between the road glide bars and their other apes? From the pictures it looks like they are the same just different heights.

I installed 12" using all stock cables and wiring. Did have to reroute clutch cable. Here are some pics.

I do not have specific experience with the RG bars by Road6, but I did have a set of 8" bars on my old Honda. The bars looked great. The only issue was that the welds were not the best. They were fine structurally, but the welds were not nice enough for me to want to have them on my RG.

This gripe is mostly subjective, but on a bike, the bars are out in the open for the wohle world to see. I need them to look good.
